In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel Iris Graphics 5100 Desktop are very slightly better than the AMD Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition.

The HD 6670 has a 400 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics 5100. This results in the HD 6670 providing 16 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 HD 6670 has a 400 MHz higher core clock speed and 4 more Render Output Units than the Graphics 5100. This results in the HD 6670 providing 4.8 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 5100 was released over a year more recently than the HD 6670, and so the Graphics 5100 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the HD 6670.

The HD 6670 has 2048 MB video memory, but the Graphics 5100 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition has 480 Shader Processing Units and the Iris Graphics 5100 Desktop has 160. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 6670 is 192 and the actual shader performance of the Graphics 5100 is 314. The Graphics 5100 having 122 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the HD 6670 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Graphics 5100 transistor size technology is 18 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 6670. This means that the Graphics 5100 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 6670. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Graphics 5100 should consume less power than the HD 6670.

The Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition requires 66 Watts to run and the Iris Graphics 5100 Desktop requires 28 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 6670. The HD 6670 requires 38 Watts more than the Graphics 5100 to run. The difference is significant enough that the HD 6670 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Graphics 5100.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition is a special edition of AMD's fast-middle-class Radeon HD 6670 v2, created by MSI.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit runs at the same speed.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock runs at 667MHz and the Frame Buffer was raised to 2GB. This is a gimmick and in no way benefits the GPU.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling System remains the same.

Performance
Without Overclocking Out of The Box, Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition is as fast as the reference Radeon HD 6670 v2.
Iris Graphics 5100 Desktop are found in some of the 2013 Haswell desktop processors.
They feature 40 Execution Units (160 Shader Processing Units), 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. They share system memory and so the memory channel and speed will depend on the users configuration. The best possible combination is a dual-channel bus-width with an operating memory clock of 800MHz.
Its central unit and turbo frequency also depend on the CPU its embedded but it ranges from 400MHz to 1350MHz.
Its performance is average and only somewhat better than what dedicated GeForce GT 630 & Radeon 6570 offer.
