In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics 4400 Mobile are very slightly better than the Intel HD Graphics 4000 Mobile.

The Graphics 4000 has a 450 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the Graphics 4400. This results in the Graphics 4000 providing 1.8 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 4000 has a 450 MHz higher core clock speed and 2 more Render Output Units than the Graphics 4400. This results in the Graphics 4000 providing 2.2 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 4400 was released over a year more recently than the Graphics 4000, and so the Graphics 4400 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games.

The HD Graphics 4400 Mobile and the HD Graphics 4000 Mobile have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The memory bandwidth of the HD Graphics 4400 Mobile and the HD Graphics 4000 Mobile are the same, which means the Graphics 4400 and the Graphics 4000 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

The HD Graphics 4400 Mobile has 20 Shader Processing Units and the HD Graphics 4000 Mobile has 16. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics 4400 is 88 and the actual shader performance of the Graphics 4000 is 86. The Graphics 4400 having 2 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Graphics 4000 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The HD Graphics 4400 Mobile requires 15 Watts to run and the HD Graphics 4000 Mobile requires 55 Watts. The Graphics 4000 requires 40 Watts more than the Graphics 4400 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Graphics 4000 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Graphics 4400.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD Graphics 4400 Mobile are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's Mobile Haswell Processors.

Architecture
The Haswell GT1 Core includes support for DirectX 11.1, OpenCL 1.2 and OpenGL 4.3. Additionally, it also offers better Decoding Performance, when compared to its Predecessors.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GT1 which offers 20 Shader Processing Units, 4 TMUs and 2 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 200MHz and goes up to 1100MHz, 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 525M.
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 4400 Mobile.
