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.

Both the HD Graphics 4600 Desktop and the GeForce 7800 GT have 20 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the . Knowing that the shader performance of the Graphics 4600 is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The HD Graphics 4600 Desktop requires 88 Watts to run and the GeForce 7800 GT requires 65 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Graphics 4600 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GeForce 7800 GT. The Graphics 4600 requires 23 Watts more than the GeForce 7800 GT 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 GeForce 7800 GT.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
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.
Select the Specific Version you have of this Graphics Card According to your Processor for a more Accurate Rank and experience using our tools.

System Suggestions
We recommend 4GB of RAM for a system with Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop.
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.
