In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD i3 6300T are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition.

The GT 430 has a 435 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the HD i3 6300T. This results in the GT 430 providing 7 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 GT 430 has a 435 MHz higher core clock speed but 4 fewer Render Output Units than the HD i3 6300T. The lower ROP count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the GT 430 manages to provide 0.3 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 i3 6300T was released over three years more recently than the GT 430, and so the HD i3 6300T is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GT 430 when running the latest games.

The GT 430 has 1024 MB video memory, but the HD i3 6300T does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD i3 6300T has 24 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i3 6300T is 182 and the actual shader performance of the GT 430 is 151. The HD i3 6300T having 31 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD i3 6300T delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 430.

The HD i3 6300T transistor size technology is 26 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 430. This means that the HD i3 6300T is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 430.

The HD i3 6300T requires 35 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition requires 49 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the HD i3 6300T and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 430. The GT 430 requires 14 Watts more than the HD i3 6300T to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GT 430 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the HD i3 6300T.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD i3 6300T is the specific version of Intel HD Graphics 530 Desktop that is integrated in the Core i3-6300T 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 950MHz, 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 6300T is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend a Decent Processor and 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's middle-class GeForce GT 430, created by MSI.

Overclock Out of The Box
The Central Unit is now of 785MHz, instead of 700MHz while the Operating Memory Clock is now of 1000MHz.

Cooling Solution
The reference Cooling System has been replaced by MSI's Dual Fan Cooling System.

Performance
Benchmarks indicate a 6% performance boost over the reference GeForce GT 430.
