A friend of mine is running a HP pavilion G6 laptop, i5 2.5Ghz with a Radeon HD 6480G.
According to a quick search, the i5 2.5 seems to have a built in intel 4000 GPU. When comparing benchmarks, the Intel seems to come out on top. (I assume it's the intel 4000 mobile and not desktop) https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-HD-4000-Mobile-125-GHz-vs-AMD-Radeon-HD-6480G/m7653vsm8221 I must be missing something here. why would they include a Radeon graphics card if it isn't as powerful as the built-in card?

Are you sure that he is running an Intel CPU laptop that ALSO has a Radeon HD6480G GPU?

Or does he have an intel CPU with HD4000 graphics
Or an AMD CPU with Radeon graphics.

My understanding is the Radeon is an iGPU, not a dedicated one.
So your friend should only have one or the other, not both.

Sorry it took so long. I asked my friend to send a screenshots of his system to make sure, and it turns out I had the wrong specs. he has the Radeon 7450, and the HD3000. According to this the 7450 is slightly better. Not by much though. ie. 315 vs 330:
