In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition are massively better than the Intel HD Graphics 4200 Desktop.

The GTX 650 has a 910 MHz higher core clock speed and 28 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics 4200. This results in the GTX 650 providing 34.7 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 GTX 650 has a 910 MHz higher core clock speed and 14 more Render Output Units than the Graphics 4200. This results in the GTX 650 providing 17.4 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 4200 was released less than a year after the GTX 650, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GTX 650 has 1024 MB video memory, but the Graphics 4200 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics 4200 Desktop has 20 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 650 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics 4200 is 83 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 650 is 426. The GTX 650 having 343 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 650 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Graphics 4200.

The Graphics 4200 transistor size technology is 6 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 650. This means that the Graphics 4200 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 650.

The HD Graphics 4200 Desktop requires 20 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 650 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 650, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the Graphics 4200.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel HD Graphics 4200 Mobile are integrated graphics in the ULV Haswell Desktop processors.
Their performance depends on the processor they are integrated on, as the latter defines the Base and Boost Clock, as well as on the SYSTEM RAM, which defines the operating memory clock, and whether the GPU accesses a 64-bit or 128-bit memory interface.
Best case scenario, the Intel HD Graphics 4200 Desktop perform slightly above Intel HD 4000 Graphics, though some variants actually perform worse and so most modern demanding games will have to be played with the lowest settings, while a few aren't even playable.
GeForce GTX 650 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class GeForce GTX 650 1GB.
This special edition comes overclocked out of the box to 1110MHz and features a custom-designed 10 cm cooler.
Benchmarks indicate a 4% performance boost when compared to the reference card and so this GPU is suitable for medium to high settings on most demanding games but not with extreme resolutions.
