I've been trying to find out how many resources an Integrated Card
pulls off other parts like RAM and the CPU. Was on Techpowerup, they have a nice chart on how the AMD Radeon RX Vega 10 Mobile stacks up against dedicated cards and other Integrated. Looking to get pointed in the direction of how to measure or find out how much RAM/CPU the card uses if it's not already in my system.

Thanks

What does the card do? Integrated video? LAN?
Assuming you're talking about the GPU you can use this: https://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/

Integrated Graphics. I know of that software but I want to know how to see or calculate how much Integrated Graphics when you're looking at laptops or PCs you don't already have like on say NewEgg.

That's why I brought up TechPowerup cause they have that table of what they benchmarked and how it stacks up to other GPU's and Integrated. Is it something only the manufacturers know? Like if I wanted to know how an MD Radeon RX Vega 10 with shared system memory stacked up to a GTX 670 2 Gig card. I know dedicated GPUs are WAY better but I just could not find out how much better, other than people crunching stuff they already owned.

Oh, well there is GPUBoss but others say they're biased.

These are just a few I found whilst Googling.

I think I know what you are looking for and you'll just have to search for it. Youtube is another good format to research these things.

other than people crunching stuff they already owned.
This is the best data there is. It's real world data.

Some games can be played on integrated graphics. Most high end ones can't and we can have a discussion as to possible damage caused.

Keep in mind mobile, lets just say laptop integrated GPU's are either AMD (APU's) or Intel (IGPU) which are essentially the same thing are not as powerful as most nice GPU's going back to 4-5 years, but what can make them good are updated drivers for the AMD platform (all in ones) vs having to use the laptop OEM manufacture's dedicated (Intel laptops CPU and nvidia GPU) drivers and they go out of service (so to speak) for new games within a few years after release. AMD keeps the APU drivers updated they have to because it's a total one maker solution. Your mobile APU is about on par with a GTX 1050 2GBGB, RX 460.

I always thought that AMD APU chips performed better in laptops than any comparable Intel counterpart but never really saw anything in print alleging that.

Yeah generally speaking they do perform better so one can actually get an AMD APU laptop and have decent performance without the headache of dual graphics laptops where the dedicated NV GPU will just stop working correctly because of the lack of updated nvidia drivers or because of power issues to drive them. The caveat with AMD is usually somewhat lower CPU IPC performance vs. Intel counterparts but 95% of that gap was closed with Ryzen
