In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon X1950 Pro are marginally better than the Intel HD Graphics 510 Desktop.

The Graphics 510 was released over three years more recently than the Radeon X1950 Pro, and so the Graphics 510 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Radeon X1950 Pro when running the latest games.

The Radeon X1950 Pro has 512 MB video memory, but the Graphics 510 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics 510 Desktop has 12 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon X1950 Pro has 36. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics 510 is 101 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon X1950 Pro is 13. The Graphics 510 having 88 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Radeon X1950 Pro performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The HD Graphics 510 Desktop requires 47 Watts to run and the Radeon X1950 Pro requires 66 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Graphics 510 and a PSU with at least 420 Watts for the Radeon X1950 Pro. The Radeon X1950 Pro requires 19 Watts more than the Graphics 510 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon X1950 Pro to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Graphics 510.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD Graphics 510 Desktop are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's Skylake Processors.

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 GT1 which offers 12 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 350MHz and goes up to 1050MHz, 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 the older Intel HD Graphics 4400.

System Suggestions
Intel HD Graphics 510 Desktop is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend a Decent Processor and 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Radeon X1950 Pro is a high-end GPU based on the 80nm variant of the R500 architecture.
It's based on the R570 Core and offers 36 Pixel Shaders, 12 TMUs and 12 ROPs, on a 256-bit of standard GDDR3. The central unit runs at 575MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 690MHz.
Its therefore a an overclocked Radeon X1950 GT and should perform slightly better.
Most of today's games might be playable at medium settings although the low preset will have to suffice on some. As it's not based on a Shader-Unified architecture, both DirectX 10 & 11 games aren't supported.
