In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop are massively better than the Intel HD Graphics Mobile (Bay Trail).

The Graphics 4600 has a 89 MHz higher core clock speed and 2 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics Mobile. This results in the Graphics 4600 providing 1 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 Graphics 4600 has a 89 MHz higher core clock speed than the Graphics Mobile and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the Graphics 4600 providing 0.2 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 Mobile was released less than a year after the Graphics 4600, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The HD Graphics Mobile (Bay Trail) and the HD Graphics 4600 Desktop have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Graphics 4600 has 4.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Graphics Mobile, which means that the memory performance of the Graphics 4600 is marginally better than the Graphics Mobile.

The HD Graphics Mobile (Bay Trail) has 4 Shader Processing Units and the HD Graphics 4600 Desktop has 20. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics Mobile is 14 and the actual shader performance of the Graphics 4600 is 100. The Graphics 4600 having 86 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 Graphics Mobile.

The HD Graphics Mobile (Bay Trail) requires 10 Watts to run and the HD Graphics 4600 Desktop requires 88 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Graphics 4600, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the Graphics Mobile. The Graphics 4600 requires 78 Watts more than the Graphics Mobile to run. The difference is significant enough that the Graphics 4600 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Graphics Mobile.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD Graphics Mobile (Bay Trail) are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's Budget Processors.

Architecture
The Bay Trail Core is a cut-down Ivy Bridge GPU and includes support for DirectX 11.0, OpenCL 1.2 and OpenGL 3.0. The DirectX 11 Performance is however very lacking due to the very limited amount of shading units.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GT1 which offers 4 Shader Processing Units, 2 TMUs and 2 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 311MHz and goes up to 896MHz, 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 667MHz.
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
Best Case Scenario, expect performance matching up the older Radeon HH 6320.

System Suggestions
We recommend 4GB of RAM for a system with Intel HD Graphics Mobile (Bay Trail).
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.
