In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics 510 Desktop are significantly better than the Intel HD i5 3570k.

The Graphics 510 was released over three years more recently than the HD i5 3570k, 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 HD i5 3570k when running the latest games.

The HD Graphics 510 Desktop and the HD i5 3570k have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Graphics 510 has 21.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD i5 3570k, which means that the memory performance of the Graphics 510 is slightly better than the HD i5 3570k.

The HD Graphics 510 Desktop has 12 Shader Processing Units and the HD i5 3570k has 16. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics 510 is 101 and the actual shader performance of the HD i5 3570k is 51. The Graphics 510 having 50 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Graphics 510 delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD i5 3570k.

The HD Graphics 510 Desktop requires 47 Watts to run but there is no entry for the HD i5 3570k. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for 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.
HD i5 3570k is a specific version of the Intel HD 4000 Graphics that comes with the CPU 'Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz'.
The new features include DirectX 11 and Tessellation support. Using Tesselation might not be a very good idea since even strong fast-middle-class GPUs struggle with it.
The core-clock is initially set at 650MHz and will go to up to 1150MHz, if necessary.
The performance depends a lot on the driver support and benchmarks indicate that the most demanding games, such as Metro 2033 ran fluently from low to medium settings, while demanding modern games, such as Skyrim V might be playable at high settings, depending on the resolution used.
Benchmarks also indicate that the performance also depends a lot on the resolution used in a way FPS might go from 45 (1366x768) to less than 20 with 1680x1050. Therefore, the best resolution to use is 1366x768 or less.
