In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 6480G.

The Graphics 4600 was released over a year more recently than the Radeon HD 6480G, and so the Graphics 4600 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Radeon HD 6480G.

The HD Graphics 4600 Desktop and the Radeon HD 6480G have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Graphics 4600 has 25.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 6480G, which means that the memory performance of the Graphics 4600 is slightly better than the Radeon HD 6480G.

The HD Graphics 4600 Desktop has 20 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 6480G has 240. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics 4600 is 100 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 6480G is 69. The Graphics 4600 having 31 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Graphics 4600 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon HD 6480G.

The HD Graphics 4600 Desktop requires 88 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 6480G. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Graphics 4600.

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.
Get the power of two when you purchase an A-Series AMD Accelerated Processor (APU) based PC with an AMD Radeon™ DirectX® 11 capable discrete graphics card. Only AMD Radeon™ Dual Graphics combines two powerful Radeon™ DirectX11 enabled graphics processors to provide the ultimate gaming performance boost when you need it. Experience gaming at higher resolutions with greater image quality and boost visual performance up to 123% when you combine this AMD Quad-Core A8 desktop APU with the AMD Radeon™ HD 6670 graphics card.
