In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel Iris Pro Graphics 5200 Desktop are noticeably better than the Intel HD i7 6700K.

The Pro Graphics has a 50 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD i7 6700K, but the HD i7 6700K has 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the Pro Graphics. As a result, the HD i7 6700K exhibits a 2.4 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the Pro Graphics. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The Pro Graphics has a 50 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD i7 6700K, but the HD i7 6700K has 4 more Render Output Units than the Pro Graphics. As a result, the HD i7 6700K exhibits a 1.2 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the Pro Graphics. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The HD i7 6700K was released over a year more recently than the Pro Graphics, and so the HD i7 6700K is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Pro Graphics.

The HD i7 6700K and the Iris Pro Graphics 5200 Desktop have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The HD i7 6700K has 8.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Pro Graphics, which means that the memory performance of the HD i7 6700K is marginally better than the Pro Graphics.

The HD i7 6700K has 24 Shader Processing Units and the Iris Pro Graphics 5200 Desktop has 160. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i7 6700K is 221 and the actual shader performance of the Pro Graphics is 314. The Pro Graphics having 93 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the HD i7 6700K performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The HD i7 6700K transistor size technology is 8 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Pro Graphics. This means that the HD i7 6700K is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Pro Graphics.

The HD i7 6700K requires 91 Watts to run and the Iris Pro Graphics 5200 Desktop requires 28 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the HD i7 6700K. The HD i7 6700K requires 63 Watts more than the Pro Graphics to run. The difference is significant enough that the HD i7 6700K may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Pro Graphics.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD i7 6700K is the specific version of Intel HD Graphics 530 Desktop that is integrated in the Core i7-6700K Processor.

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

GPU
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.

Memory
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.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance almost on level with a dedicated GeForce 920M.

System Suggestions
Intel HD i7 6700K is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend a Decent Processor and 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Iris Pro Graphics 5200 Desktop are found in some of the 2013 Haswell desktop processors.
They feature 40 Execution Units (160 Shader Processing Units), 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. They share system memory and so the memory channel and speed will depend on the users configuration. The best possible combination is a dual-channel bus-width with an operating memory clock of 800MHz.
Its central unit and turbo frequency also depend on the CPU its embedded but it ranges from 400MHz to 1300MHz.
Compared to Iris Graphics 5100 Desktop, they offer an additional eDRAM cache of 128MB and so might offer performance identical to a dedicated GeForce GT 640 or a Radeon HD 6670.
