In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the HD i7 6700K and the R5 330 are equal.

The R5 330 has a 480 MHz higher core clock speed and 4 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD i7 6700K. This results in the R5 330 providing 11 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 R5 330 has a 480 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD i7 6700K and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the R5 330 providing 3.8 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 less than a year after the R5 330, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The R5 330 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 Radeon R5 330 (OEM) has 320. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i7 6700K is 221 and the actual shader performance of the R5 330 is 233. The R5 330 having 12 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the R5 330 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD i7 6700K.

The HD i7 6700K transistor size technology is 14 nm (nanometers) smaller than the R5 330. This means that the HD i7 6700K is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the R5 330. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the HD i7 6700K should consume less power than the R5 330.

The HD i7 6700K requires 91 Watts to run and the Radeon R5 330 (OEM) requires 50 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the HD i7 6700K and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the R5 330. The HD i7 6700K requires 41 Watts more than the R5 330 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 R5 330.

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
Radeon R5 330 (OEM) is an OEM only, Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture.

Architecture
The GCN 1.1 revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture adds new important technologies and is largely oriented for energy efficiency. New technologies such as PowerTune and TrueAudio are the biggest additions as well as DirectX 11.2 support.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Oland PRO previously used on Radeon R5 240. It offers 320 Shader Processing Units, 20 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The central unit runs at 830MHz and goes up to 855MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Features
DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Crossfire, Mantle, PowerTune, Eyefinity, ZeroCore, HD3D, App Acceleration and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 50W, it requires at least a 450W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI slot for power.

Performance
Radeon R5 340 (OEM) is essentially a fast Radeon R7 240. Therefore, its performance stands somewhere between Radeon R7 240 and the faster Radeon R7 240 V2.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Modest Dual Core Processor (Intel Core i3 Quad Core/AMD FX Quad Core) and 4GB of RAM for a system with Radeon R5 330 (OEM).
