In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel UHD Graphics 630 are very slightly better than the Intel HD i7 6700K.

The UHD Graphics 630 and the HD i7 6700K have the same core clock speed of 350 MHz, but the UHD Graphics 630 has 7 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD i7 6700K. As a result, the UHD Graphics 630 exhibits a 2.5 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the HD i7 6700K. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The UHD Graphics 630 and the HD i7 6700K have the same core clock speed of 350 MHz, but the HD i7 6700K has 5 more Render Output Units than the UHD Graphics 630. As a result, the HD i7 6700K exhibits a 1.7 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the UHD Graphics 630. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The UHD Graphics 630 was released over a year more recently than the HD i7 6700K, and so the UHD Graphics 630 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the HD i7 6700K.

The UHD Graphics 630 and the HD i7 6700K 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 6700K has 34.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the UHD Graphics 630, which means that the memory performance of the HD i7 6700K is noticeably better than the UHD Graphics 630.

The UHD Graphics 630 has 184 Shader Processing Units and the HD i7 6700K has 24. However, the actual shader performance of the UHD Graphics 630 is 212 and the actual shader performance of the HD i7 6700K is 221. The HD i7 6700K having 9 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD i7 6700K delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the UHD Graphics 630.

The UHD Graphics 630 requires 15 Watts to run and the HD i7 6700K requires 91 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the HD i7 6700K, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the UHD Graphics 630. The HD i7 6700K requires 76 Watts more than the UHD Graphics 630 to run. The difference is significant enough that the HD i7 6700K may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the UHD Graphics 630.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview Intel UHD Graphics 630 are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's Coffee Lake Processors. Architecture The Coffee Lake Architecture succeeds the Kaby Lake Architecture and aims for increased CPU and Graphics Performance, within the same Power Requirements. It includes support for DirectX 12.1, OpenCL 2.1 and OpenGL 4.6, as well as DDR4 Memory Support. GPU The central unit initially runs at 300MHz and goes up to 1150MHz in Turbo Mode. The GPU Codenamed GT2 offers 184 Shader Processing Units, 23 TMUs and 3 ROPs Memory Speed The operating memory clock depends on 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. 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.Overview
Intel HD i7 6700K is the specific version of Intel HD Graphics 530 Desktop that is integrated in the Core i7-6700K 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 which offers 24 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 350MHz and goes up to 1150MHz, 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 i7 6700K is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend a Decent Processor and 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
