Gaming Performance Comparison

Recommended System Requirements
Game Radeon HD 8570D Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop

In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 8570D are marginally better than the Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop.

The Radeon HD 8570D has a 444 MHz higher core clock speed and 12 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics 4600. This results in the Radeon HD 8570D providing 11.9 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 Radeon HD 8570D has a 444 MHz higher core clock speed and 6 more Render Output Units than the Graphics 4600. This results in the Radeon HD 8570D providing 6 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 4600 was released less than a year after the Radeon HD 8570D, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Radeon HD 8570D 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 Radeon HD 8570D has 4.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Graphics 4600, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon HD 8570D is marginally better than the Graphics 4600.

The Radeon HD 8570D has 256 Shader Processing Units and the HD Graphics 4600 Desktop has 20. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 8570D is 140 and the actual shader performance of the Graphics 4600 is 100. The Radeon HD 8570D having 40 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon HD 8570D delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Graphics 4600.

The Graphics 4600 transistor size technology is 6 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon HD 8570D. This means that the Graphics 4600 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon HD 8570D. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Graphics 4600 should consume less power than the Radeon HD 8570D.

The Radeon HD 8570D requires 65 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 Radeon HD 8570D. The Graphics 4600 requires 23 Watts more than the Radeon HD 8570D 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 Radeon HD 8570D.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 8570D is an embedded Graphics Card on the mainstream Richland APUs A8-6600 and A8-6600K.
They offer 256 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The memory interface depends on whether or not the system's RAM is dual channelled.
While the central unit runs at 844MHz (for 6600K, 800MHz for 6600), since the GFX doesn't have dedicated memory, the bandwidth will depend on the system ram speed which can be up to 1866MHz (the max speed supported by the CPU). Therefore, the max operating memory clock is 933MHz.
Its performance is slightly worse than Intel HD 4600 and only very slightly better than previous Radeon HD 7560D.
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.
