In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 7700K are massively better than the Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop.

The Radeon R7 7700K has a 320 MHz higher core clock speed and 20 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics 4600. This results in the Radeon R7 7700K providing 15.7 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 R7 7700K has a 320 MHz higher core clock speed and 6 more Render Output Units than the Graphics 4600. This results in the Radeon R7 7700K providing 5 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 Radeon R7 7700K was released less than a year after the Graphics 4600, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Radeon R7 7700K and the HD Graphics 4600 Desktop have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Radeon R7 7700K has 8.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Graphics 4600, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon R7 7700K is marginally better than the Graphics 4600.

The Radeon R7 7700K has 384 Shader Processing Units and the HD Graphics 4600 Desktop has 20. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R7 7700K is 209 and the actual shader performance of the Graphics 4600 is 100. The Radeon R7 7700K having 109 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon R7 7700K delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Graphics 4600.

The Graphics 4600 transistor size technology is 6 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon R7 7700K. This means that the Graphics 4600 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon R7 7700K.

The Radeon R7 7700K requires 95 Watts to run and the HD Graphics 4600 Desktop requires 88 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Graphics 4600, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the Radeon R7 7700K. The Radeon R7 7700K requires 7 Watts more than the Graphics 4600 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon R7 7700K to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Graphics 4600.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon R7 7700K is an integrated Graphics Card in the A10-7700K.
It is based on the Graphics Core Next Architecture and offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The memory bus-width will depend on whether or not the system's RAM is dual-channeled and the operating memory clock, on its frequency. Thus, it can be either 64-bit or 128-bit and up to 1067MHz.
Therefore, the Graphics Card's performance depends a lot on the system configuration. Best case scenario, expect similiar to Intel's powerful Iris Pro Graphics 5200 and not far from Radeon R7 7850K.
The card is thus suited for 720p gaming and most modern demanding games can be played at least on medium settings.
Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's Desktop Haswell Processors.

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.

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.

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 220.
