I'm choosing between an i-5 4460 and an i3-6100 processors. The 4460 uses Intel HD Graphics 4460 while the newer 6100 uses Intel HD graphics 530.
It's really hard for me to figure this out since I don't know what benchmarks mean and I don't really understand the specs. All sites indicate the newer 530 is better but from what i read they are mostly quite similar apart from the Graphics video Max Memory which is 2gb on the 4460 and up to 64gb on the 530.
I don't understand what that means apart from the fact that it's memory it takes from the motherboards ram. There is quite a significant difference between 2gb and up to 64 gb but i don't know if this is a figure to be focusing on in this comparison.
I'm trying to determine which is better for my needs, if I get the 530 will it allow me to cut costs and save on a dedicated gpu (which i don't have much of a budget for), or if I get the 4460, will I need to buy a separate gpu and if so, what are the recommended minimum requirements.
I use my pc for basic everyday computing, multiple tabs, wmp or vlc, watching livestreams which my 10 year old pc handles quite well. I do ocassionally use photoshop and I've been planning on doing some very minor and basic video editing for 720 and 1080 clips from my camera. Very minor stuff like cutting and shortening clips, maybe combining multiple different clips together, nothing fancy.
