In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel Iris Pro Graphics 5200 Desktop are massively better than the Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop.

The Pro Graphics and the Graphics 4600 have the same core clock speed of 400 MHz, but the Pro Graphics has 4 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics 4600. As a result, the Pro Graphics exhibits a 1.6 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the Graphics 4600. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The Pro Graphics and the Graphics 4600 have the same core clock speed of 400 MHz, but the Pro Graphics has 2 more Render Output Units than the Graphics 4600. As a result, the Pro Graphics exhibits a 0.8 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the Graphics 4600. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

Both the Iris Pro Graphics 5200 Desktop and the HD Graphics 4600 Desktop were released at the same time, so are likely to be quite similar.

The Iris Pro Graphics 5200 Desktop and the HD Graphics 4600 Desktop 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 Iris Pro Graphics 5200 Desktop and the HD Graphics 4600 Desktop are the same, which means the Pro Graphics and the Graphics 4600 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

The Iris Pro Graphics 5200 Desktop has 160 Shader Processing Units and the HD Graphics 4600 Desktop has 20. However, the actual shader performance of the Pro Graphics is 314 and the actual shader performance of the Graphics 4600 is 100. The Pro Graphics having 214 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Pro Graphics delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Graphics 4600.

The Iris Pro Graphics 5200 Desktop requires 28 Watts to run and the HD Graphics 4600 Desktop requires 88 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Graphics 4600, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the Pro Graphics. The Graphics 4600 requires 60 Watts more than the Pro Graphics to run. The difference is significant enough that the Graphics 4600 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Pro Graphics.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIris Pro Graphics 5200 Desktop are found in some of the 2013 Haswell desktop processors.
They feature 40 Execution Units (160 Shader Processing Units), 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. They share system memory and so the memory channel and speed will depend on the users configuration. The best possible combination is a dual-channel bus-width with an operating memory clock of 800MHz.
Its central unit and turbo frequency also depend on the CPU its embedded but it ranges from 400MHz to 1300MHz.
Compared to Iris Graphics 5100 Desktop, they offer an additional eDRAM cache of 128MB and so might offer performance identical to a dedicated GeForce GT 640 or a Radeon HD 6670.
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.
