In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro FX 4600 are significantly better than the Intel HD i7 3770S.

The HD i7 3770S was released over three years more recently than the Quadro FX 4600, and so the HD i7 3770S is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Quadro FX 4600 when running the latest games.

The Quadro FX 4600 has 768 MB video memory, but the HD i7 3770S does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD i7 3770S has 16 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 4600 has 112. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i7 3770S is 74 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 4600 is 56. The HD i7 3770S having 18 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Quadro FX 4600 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The HD i7 3770S transistor size technology is 68 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro FX 4600. This means that the HD i7 3770S is expected to run massively cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro FX 4600.

The HD i7 3770S requires 77 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 4600 requires 134 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the HD i7 3770S and a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the Quadro FX 4600. The Quadro FX 4600 requires 57 Watts more than the HD i7 3770S to run. The difference is significant enough that the Quadro FX 4600 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to 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.

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

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.

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