In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 545 (OEM) are noticeably better than the Intel HD i7 6700K.

The GT 545 has a 520 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD i7 6700K. This results in the GT 545 providing 15.3 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 GT 545 has a 520 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the HD i7 6700K. This results in the GT 545 providing 11.1 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 GT 545, 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 GT 545 when running the latest games.

The GT 545 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 GeForce GT 545 (OEM) has 144. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i7 6700K is 221 and the actual shader performance of the GT 545 is 251. The GT 545 having 30 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GT 545 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 GT 545. This means that the HD i7 6700K is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 545.

The HD i7 6700K requires 91 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 545 (OEM) requires 105 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 GT 545. The GT 545 requires 14 Watts more than the HD i7 6700K to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GT 545 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the HD i7 6700K.

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.
Overview
GeForce GT 545 (OEM) is a fast-middle-class Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Fermi Architecture.

Architecture
The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GF116-400-KD-A1 which has 3 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 144 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 870MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 999MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 105W, it requires at least a 450W PSU and an available 6-pin connector.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat below the older GeForce GTS 450.

System Suggestions
We recommend a decent processor (Intel Core i3) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 545 (OEM).
