Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop Review

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.
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.

It can run GTA 5 with the lowest setting possible PLUS a mod for low end laptops. It can run at about 10-15 fps.

Sorry for the very late reply…. Haha, Back in 2013 when I bought it, it costed 120$ :D pretty good price, right?
There was a sale in Best Buy on XFX products, US, so it wasn't the "normal price".

this on board graphics chip usually comes with newer I5's and some I7's and can easily out preform I3 on boards.
