In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD i7 6920HQ are significantly better than the Intel Iris Graphics 5100 Mobile.

The HD i7 6920HQ has a 150 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics 5100. This results in the HD i7 6920HQ providing 4 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 i7 6920HQ has a 150 MHz higher core clock speed and 4 more Render Output Units than the Graphics 5100. This results in the HD i7 6920HQ providing 2 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 6920HQ was released over a year more recently than the Graphics 5100, and so the HD i7 6920HQ is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Graphics 5100.

The HD i7 6920HQ and the Iris Graphics 5100 Mobile have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The HD i7 6920HQ has 8.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Graphics 5100, which means that the memory performance of the HD i7 6920HQ is marginally better than the Graphics 5100.

The HD i7 6920HQ has 24 Shader Processing Units and the Iris Graphics 5100 Mobile has 40. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i7 6920HQ is 202 and the actual shader performance of the Graphics 5100 is 192. The HD i7 6920HQ having 10 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD i7 6920HQ delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Graphics 5100.

The HD i7 6920HQ transistor size technology is 8 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Graphics 5100. This means that the HD i7 6920HQ is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Graphics 5100.

The HD i7 6920HQ requires 45 Watts to run and the Iris Graphics 5100 Mobile requires 28 Watts. The HD i7 6920HQ requires 17 Watts more than the Graphics 5100 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the HD i7 6920HQ to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Graphics 5100.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD i7 6920HQ is the specific version of Intel HD Graphics 530 Mobile that is integrated in the Core i7-6920HQ Processor.

Architecture
The Skylake Architecture succeeds the Broadwell Architecture and aims for increased CPU and Graphics Performance, within the same Power Requirements. It includes support for DirectX 12.1, OpenCL 2.0 and OpenGL 4.4, as well as DDR4 Memory Support.
The GPU Codenamed GT2-H offers 24 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs.

GPU
The Central Unit Initially Runs at 350MHz and goes up to 1050MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory: Speed
The Operating Memory Clock depends at which speed the System's RAM is running and which Memory Type is installed and is ultimately limited by the highest operating speed that the Processor supports. In this case, it is 933MHz for DDR3 and 1067MHz for DDR4.
Depending on whether or not the System's RAM is Dual-Channeled, it can access either a 64-bit or 128-bit Memory Interface.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies according to the System. The GPU may reserve up to 1.7GB.

Performance
Because Performance depends heavily on the Memory Bandwidth, it may vary heavily from System to System.
Best Case Scenario, expect Performance Identical to a dedicated GeForce 640M.

System Suggestions
Intel HD i7 6920HQ is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
Intel Iris Graphics 5100 Mobile are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's ULV Haswell Processors.

Architecture
The Haswell GT3 Core includes support for DirectX 11.1, OpenCL 1.2 and OpenGL 4.0. Additionally, it also offers better Decoding Performance, when compared to its Predecessors.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GT3 which offers 40 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 200MHz and goes up to 1200MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies from laptop to laptop. Typically, the GPU reserves 1GB. 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 800MHz.
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
The Most Powerful Variant Offers Performance slightly above a dedicated GeForce GT 540M.
