    Uhm, I had W3690 all these eons a go in my gaming rig. Xeon's are not only used on servers, workstations use them as well. And. Sometimes huge companies dump them into eBay in droves and gamers buy them because they can get thus i7-grade cpu cheaper that way and they dont care about iGPU anyway.
    No, gamers don't buy these because you cant use a Xeon with a normal motherboard, you need a Xeon motherboard which is way more expensive so then it ends up more expensive even if you got the CPU for cheap.
    Workstations are not the target for Xeon, servers are, Intel have the i9 series for the high-end desktop computer (HEDT) market.

    Who cares about Xeon, nobody buys Xeon anyways. Xeon are for servers, people don't buy Xeon for their PC. If Xeon got an integrated GPU or not is irrelevant.

    uhm, only as long you stick to consumer CPU's. Xeon's.. well, gl.

    But Intel have an integrated GPU on pretty much all their CPUs almost. They are on all the major CPUs that sell big, the popular ones that all the people buy.
    On AMD they are only available on a select few CPUs and I think they use an old generation of their GPU too.



    It is much easier to buy an Intel CPU with a GPU because you can buy pretty much any Intel CPU and it will have an integrated GPU. Especially if you buy their main one that sells the most. You also know that Intel's GPU drivers are rock solid on Linux and well supported. Support available even before the hardware released, not unlike AMD where you buy the hardware and can't use it, or must wait until distributions make a new release. With Intel you're going to have support for OpenGL, OpenGL ES, OpenCL and Vulkan, all open source.

    I think AMD don't even use their latest GPU tech on their CPUs, its like a prior generation, and its only available on select models that carry the G-prefix, not on the normal mainstream CPUs.

    AMD has great APUs (that's what they call CPUs with integrated graphics over there) like the Ryzen 7 4700G or Ryzen 5 3600XT for example. They're actually gaming capable too.

    Their latest high-end ones - such as they are - are solid for gaming at 1080P for older titles, though their design and tech is simply outdated at this point. Their upcoming ones incorporate all of AMD's latest CPU and GPU tech and should be far better, when paired with the high-capacity fast RAM used on gaming builds and the latest SSDs that can tie directly into the CPU.

    As far as I know, AMD does not have any good CPUs with integrated graphics. I might be wrong though.
    But all or most Intel CPUs have integrated graphics, like if you go for an Intel model with the K-suffix which is very popular and seem to be what most people do, it has an integrated GPU.

    I would rather just use the integrated graphics on a Intel CPU. The drivers are open source and very stable and good quality.
