The HD 4000 is faster than 520 card, if you have an ivy bridge already don't upgrade to the 520. Generally The 4000 couldn't beat the 6550D in gaming performance and compute, so in other words 6550D is faster.

More details, see these pictures here:






But of course Ivy Bridge has more processing power :) , don't be fooled! If you are looking more from Integrated Graphics performance, you can wait for the next gen APU from AMD rumored to be released on August.

thanks! thats exactly what i was looking for! :D  i didnt know sandy bridge HD3000 was better than the gt520!? :o  and dont worry, i didnt upgrade (or downgrade i should say) to a gt520 on my soon to be IB build, but i have one in a old pentium D build and i was wondering how much better it would perform. :lol:  most the games i play get bottlenecked by it pretty bad too. my laptop has the 1st gen core i3 IGP (370M to be exact) and i can play TF2 smoothly on low settings 20-30FPS. if i try playing world of tanks with it, i get 5FPS on low. if i play TF2 on my pentium D build, i get 7FPS on low, and when i play world of tanks i get roughly 20-30 FPS on low(the GPU is usually at 60-70% usage, still a huge bottleneck :lol: ) i found this quite interesting. just goes to show that its just as important to have a good CPU then to have a good GPU.

Indeed GT 520 is a very slow GPU :) .
