In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro FX 5600 are significantly better than the Intel HD Graphics P4700.

The HD Graphics P4700 was released over three years more recently than the Quadro FX 5600, and so the HD Graphics P4700 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Quadro FX 5600 when running the latest games.

The Quadro FX 5600 has 1536 MB video memory, but the HD Graphics P4700 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics P4700 has 20 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 5600 has 128. However, the actual shader performance of the HD Graphics P4700 is 127 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 5600 is 77. The HD Graphics P4700 having 50 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Quadro FX 5600 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The HD Graphics P4700 transistor size technology is 68 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro FX 5600. This means that the HD Graphics P4700 is expected to run massively cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro FX 5600.

The HD Graphics P4700 requires 86 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 5600 requires 171 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the Quadro FX 5600, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the HD Graphics P4700. The Quadro FX 5600 requires 85 Watts more than the HD Graphics P4700 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Quadro FX 5600 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the HD Graphics P4700.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel HD Graphics P4700 are integrated graphics in the Haswell Xeon Server 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 P4700 perform very slightly below Intel HD 4600 Graphics and so most modern demanding games will have to be played with the lowest settings, while a few aren't even playable.
A revolutionary unified architecture, NVIDIA Quadro® FX 5600 and 4600 graphics boards deliver optimized application performance. Combining the industry's most advanced feature set, including largest frame buffers, with a C programming environment, Quadro solutions solve the most complex problems. The reference standard for Shader Model 4.0, Quadro FX 5600 and 4600 enables next generation applications with unprecedented image quality.
