In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel Iris Pro Graphics 6200 Desktop are significantly better than the Intel HD i7 6700K.

The HD i7 6700K has a 50 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the Pro Graphics. This results in the HD i7 6700K providing 3.2 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 HD i7 6700K has a 50 MHz higher core clock speed and 6 more Render Output Units than the Pro Graphics. This results in the HD i7 6700K providing 2.2 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 less than a year after the Pro Graphics, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Pro Graphics has 128 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 Iris Pro Graphics 6200 Desktop has 48. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i7 6700K is 221 and the actual shader performance of the Pro Graphics is 55. The HD i7 6700K having 166 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 Pro Graphics.

The HD i7 6700K requires 91 Watts to run and the Iris Pro Graphics 6200 Desktop requires 65 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the HD i7 6700K and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Pro Graphics. The HD i7 6700K requires 26 Watts more than the Pro Graphics 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 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.
Overview
Intel Iris Pro Graphics 6200 Desktop are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's Broadwell Processors.

Architecture
The Broadwell GT3e Core includes support for DirectX 11.2, OpenCL 1.2 and OpenGL 4.3. Additionally, it also offers better Decoding Performance, when compared to its Predecessors.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GT3e which offers 48 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 2 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 300MHz and goes up to 1150MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
Unlike the common Integrated Graphics Cards, this one has access to a dedicated frame buffer of 128MB of eDRAM.
The GPU also Shares the System's RAM which varies from laptop to laptop. Typically, the GPU reserves 1GB. 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 933MHz.
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
Benchmarks Indicate Performance around of a Dedicated GeForce 940M.

System Suggestions
We recommend 4GB of RAM for a system with Intel Iris Pro Graphics 6200 Desktop.
