A question about video card

I need a laptop that meets below requirements

"
CPU: Intel Core i7 equivalent or higher
RAM: 16 GB
OS: Windows 7 SP1 64-bit, Windows 8.1 64-bit or Windows 10 64-bit
VIDEO CARD: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB and higher
PIXEL SHADER: 5.1
VERTEX SHADER: 5.1
FREE DISK SPACE: 30 GB
DEDICATED VIDEO RAM: 6 GB"

Does "Intel HD Graphics 520" meets above video card requirements?

Thanks

I don't really have budget yet. My son plays genshin impact in his iPad but he wants to play in pc as well. If it needs dedicated video card, then i just let him play in ipad

Is 520 better than "Intel HD Graphics 4000"? This is for Minecraft . Originally i was thinking t460s
Thanks

If this is the case, then what would be needed is an Intel Skylake Core i5-7xxx or later CPU, with built-in iGPU. Don't even need a discrete GPU.

However, the listed specs seem to be for something much more involved than that, since you don't need 6 GB video RAM to run Netflix 4K.

lol who knows, a simple youtube video is easy but I see where you are coming from. Re-reading the post again it seems like he was asking more about the basic laptops.
