In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel Iris Pro Graphics 6200 Desktop are massively better than the Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop.

The Graphics 4600 has a 100 MHz higher core clock speed than the Pro Graphics, but the Pro Graphics has 4 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics 4600. As a result, the Pro Graphics exhibits a 0.8 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the Graphics 4600. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The Graphics 4600 has a 100 MHz higher core clock speed than the Pro Graphics and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the Graphics 4600 providing 0.2 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 Pro Graphics was released over a year more recently than the Graphics 4600, and so the Pro Graphics is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Graphics 4600.

The Pro Graphics has 128 MB video memory, but the Graphics 4600 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Iris Pro Graphics 6200 Desktop has 48 Shader Processing Units and the HD Graphics 4600 Desktop has 20. However, the actual shader performance of the Pro Graphics is 55 and the actual shader performance of the Graphics 4600 is 100. The Graphics 4600 having 45 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Pro Graphics performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Pro Graphics transistor size technology is 8 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Graphics 4600. This means that the Pro Graphics is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Graphics 4600.

The Iris Pro Graphics 6200 Desktop requires 65 Watts to run and the HD Graphics 4600 Desktop requires 88 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Pro Graphics and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Graphics 4600. The Graphics 4600 requires 23 Watts more than the Pro Graphics 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 Pro Graphics.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel Iris Pro Graphics 6200 Desktop are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's Broadwell Processors.

Architecture
The Broadwell GT3e Core includes support for DirectX 11.2, OpenCL 1.2 and OpenGL 4.3. Additionally, it also offers better Decoding Performance, when compared to its Predecessors.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GT3e which offers 48 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 2 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 300MHz and goes up to 1150MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
Unlike the common Integrated Graphics Cards, this one has access to a dedicated frame buffer of 128MB of eDRAM.
The GPU also 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.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate Performance around of a Dedicated GeForce 940M.

System Suggestions
We recommend 4GB of RAM for a system with Intel Iris Pro Graphics 6200 Desktop.
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.
