In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop are noticeably better than the Intel HD i7 3770S.

The HD i7 3770S has a 250 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the Graphics 4600. This results in the HD i7 3770S providing 1 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 i7 3770S has a 250 MHz higher core clock speed and 2 more Render Output Units than the Graphics 4600. This results in the HD i7 3770S providing 1.8 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 4600 was released over a year more recently than the HD i7 3770S, and so the Graphics 4600 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the HD i7 3770S.

The HD i7 3770S 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 memory bandwidth of the HD i7 3770S and the HD Graphics 4600 Desktop are the same, which means the HD i7 3770S and the Graphics 4600 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

The HD i7 3770S has 16 Shader Processing Units and the HD Graphics 4600 Desktop has 20. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i7 3770S is 74 and the actual shader performance of the Graphics 4600 is 100. The Graphics 4600 having 26 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Graphics 4600 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD i7 3770S.

The HD i7 3770S requires 77 Watts to run and the HD Graphics 4600 Desktop requires 88 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the HD i7 3770S and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Graphics 4600. The Graphics 4600 requires 11 Watts more than the HD i7 3770S to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Graphics 4600 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the HD i7 3770S.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD i7 3770S is the specific version of Intel HD Graphics 4000 Desktop that is Integrated in the Core i7-3770S Processor.

GPU
The Central Unit Initially Runs at 650MHz and goes up to 1150MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
Frame Buffer: Up to 1.7GB.

Memory Channel: 64-bit Or 128-bit.

Memory Clock: Up to 800MHz.

Memory Bandwidth: 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.

Performance
Gaming Benchmarks Indicate its Performance is Similar to of a Dedicated GeForce GT 620.

System Suggestions
We recommend 4GB of RAM for a system with Intel HD i7 3770S.
Overview
Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's Desktop Haswell Processors.

Architecture
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.

GPU
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.

Memory
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.

Performance
The Most Powerful Variant Offers Performance similar to a dedicated GeForce GT 220.
