In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the HD i3 6300 and the HD i7 6700K are equal.

The HD i3 6300 and the HD i7 6700K have both the same core clock speed and the same Texture Fill Rate. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The HD i3 6300 and the HD i7 6700K have both the same core clock speed and the same Pixel Fill Rate. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The HD i3 6300 was released less than a year after the HD i7 6700K, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The HD i3 6300 and the HD i7 6700K have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The memory bandwidth of the HD i3 6300 and the HD i7 6700K are the same, which means the HD i3 6300 and the HD i7 6700K have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

Both the HD i3 6300 and the HD i7 6700K have 24 Shader Processing Units. The two GPUs are based on different architectures, but deliver an equivalent shader performance. To compare, we must continue to look at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, the two GPUs have extremely similar stats, so any gaming performance difference would most likely be negligible.

The HD i3 6300 requires 47 Watts to run and the HD i7 6700K requires 91 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the HD i3 6300 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the HD i7 6700K. The HD i7 6700K requires 44 Watts more than the HD i3 6300 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 HD i3 6300.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD i3 6300 is the specific version of Intel HD Graphics 530 Desktop that is integrated in the Core i3-6300 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-S0 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 i3 6300 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend a Decent Processor and 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
