In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics 4600 Mobile are massively better than the AMD Mobility Radeon HD 5470 512MB.

The Radeon HD has a 550 MHz higher core clock speed and 4 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics 4600. This results in the Radeon HD providing 5.2 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The Radeon HD has a 550 MHz higher core clock speed and 2 more Render Output Units than the Graphics 4600. This results in the Radeon HD providing 2.6 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Graphics 4600 was released over three years more recently than the Radeon HD, and so the Graphics 4600 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Radeon HD when running the latest games.

The Radeon HD has 512 MB video memory, but the Graphics 4600 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics 4600 Mobile has 20 Shader Processing Units and the Mobility Radeon HD 5470 512MB has 80. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics 4600 is 108 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD is 39. The Graphics 4600 having 69 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Graphics 4600 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon HD.

The Graphics 4600 transistor size technology is 18 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon HD. This means that the Graphics 4600 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon HD.

The HD Graphics 4600 Mobile requires 47 Watts to run and the Mobility Radeon HD 5470 512MB requires 15 Watts. The Graphics 4600 requires 32 Watts more than the Radeon HD to run. The difference is significant enough that the Graphics 4600 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Radeon HD.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD Graphics 4600 Mobile are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's Mobile Haswell Processors.

The Haswell GT2 Core includes support for DirectX 11.1, OpenCL 1.2 and OpenGL 4.3. Additionally, it also offers better Decoding Performance, when compared to its Predecessors.

It equips a GPU Codenamed GT2 which offers 20 Shader Processing Units, 4 TMUs and 2 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 200MHz and goes up to 1350MHz, in Turbo Mode.

The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies from System to System. Typically, the GPU reserves 1.7GB. Depending on whether or not the system's RAM is Dual-Channeled, it can access either a 64-bit or 128-bit memory interface. The operating memory clock also depends on which speed the System's RAM is running and is limited by the highest operating speed that the Processor supports. In this case, it is 800MHz.
It is then obvious the Memory Bandwidth depends on a lot of factors and thus this Graphics Card performance may vary heavily from system to system.

The Most Powerful Variant Offers Performance similar to a dedicated GeForce GT 540M.

System Suggestions
We recommend 4GB of RAM for a system with Intel HD Graphics 4600 Mobile.
This is the 512MB variant of the entry-level Mobility Radeon HD 5470 based on the 40nm, Terascale 2 architecture. Check the page of the original Mobility Radeon HD 5470 to know more about its core and specifications.
Despite the weak processing power of this GPU, it did benchmarks indicate it does benefit from a 1GB frame buffer in some modern demanding games, which may offer one or two extra frame rates. Therefore, this variant should be 1-3% worse.
