In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 7800 GT.

The Graphics 4600 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 7800 GT, 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 GeForce 7800 GT when running the latest games.

The GeForce 7800 GT has 256 MB video memory, but the Graphics 4600 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics 4600 Desktop has 80 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 7800 GT has 20. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics 4600 is 157 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 7800 GT is 8. The Graphics 4600 having 149 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 GeForce 7800 GT.

The GeForce 7800 GT requires 65 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Graphics 4600. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GeForce 7800 GT, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the Graphics 4600.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop is the successor to Intel HD 4000 Desktop that's featured in the Haswell based desktop CPUs.
It features 20 Execution Units (80 Shader Processing Units) and its central-unit speed will range between 400MHz and 1250MHz (Turbo Boost) and that the fastest memory supported is DDR3-1600 meaning its memory-clock will operate at 800MHz, at the most.
Benchmarks indicate its performance is up to 25% better than previous Intel HD 4000. However, only Iris Graphics offer performance good enough to play all modern demanding games, some even with extremely fluent frame rates.
The NVIDIA GeForce 7 Series graphics processing units (GPUs) represent a significant leap forward in 3D graphics design, delivering the unparalleled horsepower and revolutionary technologies you need to tackle the latest games and video applications. The GeForce 7 Series GPUs deliver blazing frame rates and outstanding image quality so you can experience full-throttle graphics performance.
