Intel HD Graphics CPU compatibility question

  Stevens29 14:21 19 Sep 2014


I'm interested in buying a Medion Akoya S6211T laptop, seen here on the ASDA Direct website: link . I have concerns over how accurate the specifications are, as they don't seem to add up.

The CPU is an Intel® Core™ i5-4200M 2.5Ghz Processor seen here: link . However, if you look at the Processor Graphics it says: Intel® HD Graphics 4600 and on the ASDA direct website it is something different of Intel HD Graphics 4400. I keep checking the i5-4200M specs and everywhere I see Intel HD Graphics 4400, not 4600.

Are there compatibility issues with 4th gen CPUs? Can a i5-4200M use the 4400 HD graphics? Or is it only HD 4600 upwards? Does this matter?

This uncertainty leads me to think the product is listed incorrectly.

Thanks for your time.

Found the correct one now Medion which has the 4200M processor but still HD4400.

Just a thought, the Intel HD 4400 graphics could be a separate graphics card/chip and nothing to do with the i5-4200M CPU.
