In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop are massively better than the Intel HD Graphics 3000 Mobile.

The Graphics 4600 was released over a year more recently than the Graphics 3000, 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 Graphics 3000.

The HD Graphics 4600 Desktop and the HD Graphics 3000 Mobile have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Graphics 4600 has 12.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Graphics 3000, which means that the memory performance of the Graphics 4600 is slightly better than the Graphics 3000.

The Graphics 4600 has 20 Shader Processing Units but the Graphics 3000 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics 4600 Desktop requires 88 Watts to run but there is no entry for the HD Graphics 3000 Mobile. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Graphics 4600.

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.
