Integrated graphics will produce very low performance. A dedicated GPU will produce better results on all scenarios. This is only for listing iGPU support.
Minimum for Linux: Intel HD 5300 / AMD Radeon R5 Graphics
Minimum for Windows: Intel HD Graphics 520 / AMD Radeon Vega 3
Recommended: Intel UHD Graphics 750 / AMD Radeon Vega 7
Since an integrated GPU uses system RAM as its video memory (VRAM), our memory requirement in this configuration is higher.
Minimum with dedicated graphics: 8GB
Minimum with integrated graphics: 12GB
