Integrated Graphics vs Dedicated GPU

I was just looking at youtube trying to find something fairly recent that performed a demonstration between integrated graphics vs dedicated GPU with a video juxtaposition so we can actually see any differences. I didn't really find anything very useful.

I'm curious to find out if the new Ivy Bridge with its HD4000 integrated graphics is good enough or not. I'd like to see a side by side comparison (juxtaposition).

Although, I don't consider myself much of a "gamer" but, I will be rendering video. So, I'm curious about how long it might take to render a 2 hour DVD for example with integrated graphics vs dedicated GPU.

After that, I'm curious about at what point a GPU is plenty good enough and then begins to get into "overkill" for what I need vs. price. If I were going to buy a GPU, I'd consider an NVidia 650 or AMD 7890 or something around there. I really don't want to go beyond 120 watts.

All I see attempting to tackle this is below but, it provides nothing beyond jibber jabber:

Apologies, I forgot to search around before posting. I found these other similar threads but, none offer what I was asking for. The Tom's link below is from 08 so, I'd love to see an updated version of that when the Ivy Bridge comes out with its HD4000:

Ivy Bridge is not out yet so you will have to wait a while to see what the HD4000 can do. There is quite a variety of video cards and for the most part they are much better than intergrated video. This chart can give you some idea of the ranking of dedicated vs intergrated.

Good call, I forgot about that link too. I'd seen a couple months ago but forgot about it.
