Does integrated graphics slow down an APU?

Like, does using the integrated graphics put a heavier load on the entire APU? If I were to use a discrete graphics card, would I get significantly better performance out of the APU as soley a CPU? I hope you know what I mean.

And yes I know, buying a gpu defeats the purpose of an apu, but that isn't my question.

It will take some stress off, reduce thermals and could increase OC potential if limited by thermals.
