In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD i7 6820HQ are significantly better than the AMD Radeon R6 7300.

The Radeon R6 7300 has a 183 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD i7 6820HQ. This results in the Radeon R6 7300 providing 7.2 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 Radeon R6 7300 has a 183 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD i7 6820HQ and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the Radeon R6 7300 providing 1.5 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 6820HQ was released over a year more recently than the Radeon R6 7300, and so the HD i7 6820HQ is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Radeon R6 7300.

The HD i7 6820HQ and the Radeon R6 7300 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 6820HQ has 8.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon R6 7300, which means that the memory performance of the HD i7 6820HQ is marginally better than the Radeon R6 7300.

The HD i7 6820HQ has 24 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R6 7300 has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i7 6820HQ is 202 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon R6 7300 is 133. The HD i7 6820HQ having 69 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD i7 6820HQ delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon R6 7300.

The HD i7 6820HQ transistor size technology is 14 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon R6 7300. This means that the HD i7 6820HQ is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon R6 7300.

The HD i7 6820HQ requires 45 Watts to run and the Radeon R6 7300 requires 20 Watts. The HD i7 6820HQ requires 25 Watts more than the Radeon R6 7300 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the HD i7 6820HQ to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon R6 7300.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD i7 6820HQ is the specific version of Intel HD Graphics 530 Mobile that is integrated in the Core i7-6820HQ 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 GT 640M.

System Suggestions
Intel HD i7 6820HQ is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Radeon R6 7300 is an integrated Graphics Card in the APU A10-7300.

It is based on the Graphics Core Next Architecture and offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs. While the central unit is set at 533MHz, the memory bus-width will depend on whether or not the system's RAM is dual-channeled and the operating memory clock, on its frequency. Thus, it can be either 64-bit or 128-bit and up to 800MHz.
The Graphics Card also shares the processor's L2 Cache of 4MB. Therefore, it reduces the need to resort to its memory bandwidth.

Overall, the Graphics Card's performance depends a lot on the system configuration. Best case scenario, expect performance superior to a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GT 720M or an AMD Radeon R5 M230.
The card is thus suited for 720p gaming and some modern demanding games can be played at least on medium settings.
