The graphics solution in your PC transforms video data from your system into the image you see on the monitor. It plugs into the system’s motherboard and decodes and processes the video signal. The quality of the images users will see on your OptiPlexTM systems largely depends on the combination of graphics solution and monitor you choose.
Images shown are for demonstrative purposes only.
Integrated Graphics (Basic Solution)
An integrated graphics solution shares resources with the system’s central processing unit (CPU) and memory to display information on the screen. Integrated graphics are capable of processing some 3D images, but because they share resources with the processor and the system memory, they sometimes deliver a less-than-optimal experience.
Discrete Graphics (High-End Solution)
Discrete graphics utilize a GPU that is separate (or discrete) from the system’s processor, as well as a dedicated graphics memory. Because this solution does not burden the CPU and system memory, overall system performance may be significantly better with discrete graphics when you are running applications that use complex images.
Dual Discrete Graphics Options
Optional dual-graphics configurations on OptiPlex 790 and 990 allow two graphics cards to work together to use up to four monitors to help expand available desktop space.
