In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition.

The GT 220 has a 225 MHz higher core clock speed and 12 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics 4600. This results in the GT 220 providing 8.4 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 GT 220 has a 225 MHz higher core clock speed and 6 more Render Output Units than the Graphics 4600. This results in the GT 220 providing 4.2 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 Graphics 4600 was released over three years more recently than the GT 220, and so the Graphics 4600 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GT 220 when running the latest games.

The GT 220 has 1024 MB video memory, but the Graphics 4600 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition has 48 Shader Processing Units and the HD Graphics 4600 Desktop has 20. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 220 is 60 and the actual shader performance of the Graphics 4600 is 100. The Graphics 4600 having 40 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Graphics 4600 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 220.

The Graphics 4600 transistor size technology is 18 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 220. This means that the Graphics 4600 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 220. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Graphics 4600 should consume less power than the GT 220.

The GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition requires 58 Watts to run and the HD Graphics 4600 Desktop requires 88 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 220 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Graphics 4600. The Graphics 4600 requires 30 Watts more than the GT 220 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Graphics 4600 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GT 220.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's Entry-Level GeForce GT 220 v2, created by Galaxy.

Overclock: Central Unit
None.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock is now of 400MHz instead of 790MHz because the GPU Acesses a GDDR2 Frame Buffer, instead of GDDR3.

Frame Buffer
Untouched.


Cooling Solution
Untouched.

Performance
Performance is Lower than the Reference GeForce GT 220 v2, especially at Higher Resolutions.
Overview
Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's Desktop Haswell Processors.

Architecture
The Haswell GT2 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 GT2 which offers 20 Shader Processing Units, 4 TMUs and 2 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 200MHz and goes up to 1250MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies from System to System. 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 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 similar to a dedicated GeForce GT 220.
