Internal Graphics

Integrating a graphics core into the processor complements its functionality, but not all manufacturers (AMD or Intel) integrate iGPU into their CPUs. Even if the processor has an integrated graphics card, its power is hardly enough for modern games, so these features do not affect the overall performance of the processor. If AMD Ryzen 9 3950X supports an integrated graphics core, you can see its specifications below.

  • GPU name
    no iGPU
  • GPU (Turbo)
    No turbo
Hardware codec support

Hardware codecs help processors convert blocks of data into a sequence of images or sound. In modern processors, the need to support hardware codecs is not a priority, so these characteristics are not considered in the overall AMD Ryzen 9 3950X performance rating.
