In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD FirePro V5800 are noticeably better than the Intel HD i7 6700K.

The FirePro V5800 has a 350 MHz higher core clock speed and 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD i7 6700K. This results in the FirePro V5800 providing 22.4 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 FirePro V5800 has a 350 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the HD i7 6700K. This results in the FirePro V5800 providing 8.4 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 HD i7 6700K was released over three years more recently than the FirePro V5800, and so the HD i7 6700K is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the FirePro V5800 when running the latest games.

The FirePro V5800 has 1024 MB video memory, but the HD i7 6700K does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD i7 6700K has 24 Shader Processing Units and the FirePro V5800 has 800. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i7 6700K is 221 and the actual shader performance of the FirePro V5800 is 364. The FirePro V5800 having 143 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the FirePro V5800 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD i7 6700K.

The HD i7 6700K transistor size technology is 26 nm (nanometers) smaller than the FirePro V5800. This means that the HD i7 6700K is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the FirePro V5800.

The HD i7 6700K requires 91 Watts to run and the FirePro V5800 requires 74 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the HD i7 6700K and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the FirePro V5800. The HD i7 6700K requires 17 Watts more than the FirePro V5800 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the HD i7 6700K to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the FirePro V5800.

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.

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 i7 6700K is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend a Decent Processor and 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
FirePro V5800 is a professional graphics card based on the 40nm Terascale 2 architecture.
It's based on the Juniper XT Core (same used on Radeon HD 6770) and therefore offers 800 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 16 ROPs on a 128-bit interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit is clocked 700MHz while the memory clock operates at 1000MHZ.
Compared to Radeon HD 6770, its central unit is underclocked and overall its gaming performance is even lower than Radeon HD 6770 because the latter benefits from certified gaming drivers which unlock the Terascale's architecture potential while FirePro W5800 is made for professional applications. Therefore, expect its performance to be between 7% and 10% worse than Radeon HD 6770.
