In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD i7 6700K are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 630 v4.

The GT 630 has a 525 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the HD i7 6700K. This results in the GT 630 providing 8.4 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 GT 630 has a 525 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the HD i7 6700K. This results in the GT 630 providing 11.2 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 HD i7 6700K was released over three years more recently than the GT 630, 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 630 when running the latest games.

The GT 630 has 2048 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 630 v4 has 192. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i7 6700K is 221 and the actual shader performance of the GT 630 is 168. The HD i7 6700K having 53 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD i7 6700K delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 630.

The HD i7 6700K transistor size technology is 14 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 630. This means that the HD i7 6700K is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 630.

The HD i7 6700K requires 91 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 630 v4 requires 50 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 630. The HD i7 6700K requires 41 Watts more than the GT 630 to run. The difference is significant enough that the HD i7 6700K may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GT 630.

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 630 v4 is a Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Kepler Architecture.

Architecture
The Kepler Architecture was NVIDIA's big step to power efficiency. Each Stream Multiprocessor (SMX) now hosts 192 Shader Processing Units - against the 48 of older Fermi Architecture, and has been redesigned being now clocked at the same speed of the Central Unit. This means they are more energy efficient and will consequently lead to cooler operating temperatures. However, it also means they are weaker. It can be said that one Fermi SMX is as fast as 2 Kepler SMXs.
Additionally, and not available in all GPUs, Kepler also introduced the Boost Clock Feature. The Boost Clock is an even higher Clock Speed activated when in gaming mode and becomes the effective speed of the GPU.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GK107-301-A2 which has 1 Stream Multiprocessor activated and thus offers 192 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 875MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 891MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Optimus, CUDA, OpenCL, DirectCompute, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 50W, it requires at least a 400W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat above the older GeForce GT 530.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Modest Processor (Intel Core i3) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 630 v4.
