In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition are massively better than the Intel HD Graphics 530 Desktop.

The GTX 560 Ti has a 382 MHz higher core clock speed and 48 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics 530. This results in the GTX 560 Ti providing 41.2 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 GTX 560 Ti has a 382 MHz higher core clock speed and 24 more Render Output Units than the Graphics 530. This results in the GTX 560 Ti providing 20.6 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 530 was released over three years more recently than the GTX 560 Ti, and so the Graphics 530 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GTX 560 Ti when running the latest games.

The GTX 560 Ti has 1280 MB video memory, but the Graphics 530 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics 530 Desktop has 24 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition has 448. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics 530 is 221 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is 656. The GTX 560 Ti having 435 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 560 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Graphics 530.

The Graphics 530 transistor size technology is 26 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 560 Ti. This means that the Graphics 530 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 560 Ti.

The HD Graphics 530 Desktop requires 91 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition requires 210 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Graphics 530 and a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GTX 560 Ti. The GTX 560 Ti requires 119 Watts more than the Graphics 530 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 560 Ti may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Graphics 530.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD Graphics 530 Desktop are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's Skylake Processors.

The Skylake Core includes support for DirectX 12.1, OpenCL 2.0 and OpenGL 4.4. Additionally, it also supports DDR4 Memory.

It equips a GPU Codenamed GT2 which offers 24 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 350MHz and goes up to 1150MHz, in Turbo Mode.

The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies from laptop to laptop. 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 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 1067MHz.
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 put its performance almost on level with a dedicated GeForce 920M.

System Suggestions
Intel HD Graphics 530 Desktop is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend a Decent Processor and 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition is a high-end Graphics Card based on the 270-A1 variant of the 40nm GF110 GPU of the Fermi architecture.
The 270-A1 variant of the GF110 Core comes with 14 SMx activated and thus offers 448 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 32 ROPs, on a 320-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5.
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition has its central unit clocked at 732MHz and its memory clock operates at 950MHz - same as GeForce GTX 570.
Compared to the regular GeForce GTX 560 Ti, the rated board TDP is around 40W higher but its performance surpasses it largely, while some factory overclocked versions surpass GeForce GTX 570.
