In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD i7 6700T are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon HD 6670 v2 Sapphire 1GB Edition.

The HD 6670 has a 450 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD i7 6700T. This results in the HD 6670 providing 13.6 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 6670 has a 450 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD i7 6700T and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the HD 6670 providing 3.6 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 6700T was released over three years more recently than the HD 6670, and so the HD i7 6700T is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the HD 6670 when running the latest games.

The HD 6670 has 1024 MB video memory, but the HD i7 6700T does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD i7 6700T has 24 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 6670 v2 Sapphire 1GB Edition has 480. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i7 6700T is 211 and the actual shader performance of the HD 6670 is 192. The HD i7 6700T having 19 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD i7 6700T delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 6670.

The HD i7 6700T transistor size technology is 26 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 6670. This means that the HD i7 6700T is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 6670.

The HD i7 6700T requires 35 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 6670 v2 Sapphire 1GB Edition requires 66 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the HD i7 6700T and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 6670. The HD 6670 requires 31 Watts more than the HD i7 6700T to run. The difference is significant enough that the HD 6670 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the HD i7 6700T.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD i7 6700T is the specific version of Intel HD Graphics 530 Desktop that is integrated in the Core i7-6700T Processor.

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 GT2 which offers 24 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 350MHz and goes up to 1100MHz, 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 a dedicated GeForce 920M.

System Suggestions
Intel HD i7 6700T is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend a Decent Processor and 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Radeon HD 6670 v2 Sapphire 1GB Edition is a special edition of AMD's fast-middle-class Radeon HD 6670 v2, created by Sapphire.

Overclock Out of The Box
The Clock Frequencies of both Central Unit and Operating Memory Clock Remain the Same.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling System remains the same.

Without Overclocking Out of The Box, Radeon HD 6670 v2 Sapphire 1GB Edition is as fast as the reference Radeon HD 6670 v2.
