In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics 5600 Mobile are marginally better than the AMD Radeon R6 7300.

The Radeon R6 7300 has a 233 MHz higher core clock speed and 20 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics 5600. This results in the Radeon R6 7300 providing 11.6 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 R6 7300 has a 233 MHz higher core clock speed and 7 more Render Output Units than the Graphics 5600. This results in the Radeon R6 7300 providing 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 5600 was released less than a year after the Radeon R6 7300, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The HD Graphics 5600 Mobile and the Radeon R6 7300 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Graphics 5600 has 4.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon R6 7300, which means that the memory performance of the Graphics 5600 is marginally better than the Radeon R6 7300.

The HD Graphics 5600 Mobile has 24 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R6 7300 has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics 5600 is 202 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon R6 7300 is 133. The Graphics 5600 having 69 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Radeon R6 7300 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Graphics 5600 transistor size technology is 14 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon R6 7300. This means that the Graphics 5600 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon R6 7300. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Graphics 5600 should consume less power than the Radeon R6 7300.

The HD Graphics 5600 Mobile requires 37 Watts to run and the Radeon R6 7300 requires 20 Watts. The Graphics 5600 requires 17 Watts more than the Radeon R6 7300 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Graphics 5600 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon R6 7300.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD Graphics 5600 Mobile are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's Broadwell Processors.

The Broadwell Core includes support for DirectX 11.2, OpenCL 2.0 and OpenGL 4.3. Additionally, it also offers better Decoding Performance, when compared to its Predecessors.

It equips a GPU Codenamed GT2 which offers 24 Shader Processing Units, 4 TMUs and 1 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 300MHz and goes up to 1050MHz, in Turbo Mode.

The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies from laptop to laptop. Typically, the GPU reserves 1GB. 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 the at 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 933MHz.
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.

Gaming benchmarks put its performance almost on level with a dedicated Radeon HD 7690M.

System Suggestions
We recommend 4GB of RAM for a system with Intel HD Graphics 5600 Mobile.
Radeon R6 7300 is an integrated Graphics Card in the APU A10-7300.

It is based on the Graphics Core Next Architecture and offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs. While the central unit is set at 533MHz, 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 800MHz.
The Graphics Card also shares the processor's L2 Cache of 4MB. Therefore, it reduces the need to resort to its memory bandwidth.

Overall, the Graphics Card's performance depends a lot on the system configuration. Best case scenario, expect performance superior to a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GT 720M or an AMD Radeon R5 M230.
The card is thus suited for 720p gaming and some modern demanding games can be played at least on medium settings.
