In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 545 1.5GB are marginally better than the Intel HD i5 6500T.

The GT 545 has a 370 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD i5 6500T. This results in the GT 545 providing 11.7 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 545 has a 370 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the HD i5 6500T. This results in the GT 545 providing 8.7 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 i5 6500T was released over three years more recently than the GT 545, and so the HD i5 6500T is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GT 545 when running the latest games.

The GT 545 has 1536 MB video memory, but the HD i5 6500T does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD i5 6500T has 24 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 545 1.5GB has 144. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i5 6500T is 211 and the actual shader performance of the GT 545 is 207. The HD i5 6500T having 4 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GT 545 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The HD i5 6500T transistor size technology is 26 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 545. This means that the HD i5 6500T is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 545. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the HD i5 6500T should consume less power than the GT 545.

The HD i5 6500T requires 35 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 545 1.5GB requires 70 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the HD i5 6500T and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GT 545. The GT 545 requires 35 Watts more than the HD i5 6500T to run. The difference is significant enough that the GT 545 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the HD i5 6500T.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD i5 6500T is the specific version of Intel HD Graphics 530 Desktop that is integrated in the Core i5-6500T 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-R0 which offers 24 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 350MHz and goes up to 1100MHz, 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 i5 6500T 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 545 1.5GB is a Fast-Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Fermi Architecture.

Architecture
The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GF116-400-A1 which has 3 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 144 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 720MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1.5GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 192-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 800MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 70W, it requires at least a 400W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance slightly above Radeon HD 6670 v2.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i3) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 545 1.5GB.
