In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Asus DirectCU II TOP 1GB Edition are massively better than the Intel HD Graphics 4400 Desktop.

The Graphics 4400 has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The Graphics 4400 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 560, and so the Graphics 4400 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 560.

The GTX 560 has 1024 MB video memory, but the Graphics 4400 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce GTX 560 Asus DirectCU II TOP 1GB Edition has 336 Shader Processing Units and the HD Graphics 4400 Desktop has 80. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 is 622 and the actual shader performance of the Graphics 4400 is 0. The GTX 560 having 622 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 560 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Graphics 4400.

The Graphics 4400 transistor size technology is 18 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 560. This means that the Graphics 4400 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 560.

The GeForce GTX 560 Asus DirectCU II TOP 1GB Edition requires 150 Watts to run but there is no entry for the HD Graphics 4400 Desktop. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 560.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 560 Asus DirectCU II TOP 1GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's Performance GeForce GTX 560, created by Asus.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit now runs at 925MHz, instead of 810MHz.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock is now of 1050MHz, instead of 1002MHz.

Frame Buffer
Untouched.


Cooling Solution
DirectCU II: Copper heat pipes in direct contact with the GPU to speed up heat dissipation for over 20% cooler performance, DirectCU II takes cooling further with twin 80mm fans for doubled airflow.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate a 9% Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 560.
Intel HD Graphics 4400 Desktop is a variant of Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop, for ULV processors.
It features 20 Execution Units (80 Shader Processing Units) and its central-unit speed will range between XXXMHz and 1150MHz (Turbo Boost) and that the fastest memory supported is DDR3-1600 meaning its memory-clock will operate at 800MHz, at the most.
Compared to Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop, its performance is only slightly lower but its TDP is significantly lower.
