In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon HD 7540D.

The Radeon HD 7540D has a 360 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics 4600. This results in the Radeon HD 7540D providing 7.5 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 7540D has a 360 MHz higher core clock speed and 2 more Render Output Units than the Graphics 4600. This results in the Radeon HD 7540D providing 2.2 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 a year more recently than the Radeon HD 7540D, and so the Graphics 4600 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Radeon HD 7540D.

The Radeon HD 7540D has 1024 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 Desktop has 20 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7540D has 192. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics 4600 is 100 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 7540D is 95. The Graphics 4600 having 5 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Radeon HD 7540D performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Graphics 4600 transistor size technology is 10 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon HD 7540D. This means that the Graphics 4600 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon HD 7540D. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Graphics 4600 should consume less power than the Radeon HD 7540D.

The HD Graphics 4600 Desktop requires 88 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 7540D requires 65 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Graphics 4600. The Graphics 4600 requires 23 Watts more than the Radeon HD 7540D to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Graphics 4600 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon HD 7540D.

GPU Mini Review

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

Architecture
The Haswell GT2 Core includes support for DirectX 11.1, OpenCL 1.2 and OpenGL 4.0. Additionally, it also offers better Decoding Performance, when compared to its Predecessors.

GPU
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 1250MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
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.

Performance
The Most Powerful Variant Offers Performance similar to a dedicated GeForce GT 220.
Select the Specific Version you have of this Graphics Card According to your Processor for a more Accurate Rank and experience using our tools.

System Suggestions
We recommend 4GB of RAM for a system with Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop.
Radeon HD 7540D is an embedded GPU on the midle-class Trinity CPU A6-5400K.
Since the GPU doesn't have dedicated memory, the bandwidth will depend on the system ram speed which can be up to 1866MHz (the max speed supported by the CPU) meaning the operating memory speed is 933MHz and whether or not it's dual channel, as the bus width can be 64-bit or 128-bit.
Its core-clock is clocked at 760MHz and comes with 192 Shader Processing Units.
Radeon 7560D's performance depends a lot on driver support and varies from game to game in a way games in the same category (demanding, very demanding, etc) can be unplayable at the lowest settings or might run at medium/high settings.
