In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics 4400 Desktop are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 2600 XT Diamond Edition.

The Graphics 4400 has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The Graphics 4400 was released over three years more recently than the HD 2600 XT, and so the Graphics 4400 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the HD 2600 XT when running the latest games.

The HD 2600 XT has 256 MB video memory, but the Graphics 4400 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics 4400 Desktop has 80 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 2600 XT Diamond Edition has 120. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics 4400 is 0 and the actual shader performance of the HD 2600 XT is 102. The HD 2600 XT having 102 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 2600 XT delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Graphics 4400.

The Graphics 4400 transistor size technology is 43 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 2600 XT. This means that the Graphics 4400 is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 2600 XT.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel HD Graphics 4400 Desktop is a variant of Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop, for ULV processors.
It features 20 Execution Units (80 Shader Processing Units) and its central-unit speed will range between XXXMHz and 1150MHz (Turbo Boost) and that the fastest memory supported is DDR3-1600 meaning its memory-clock will operate at 800MHz, at the most.
Compared to Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop, its performance is only slightly lower but its TDP is significantly lower.
Radeon HD 2600 XT Diamond Edition is a special edition of the middle-class Radeon HD 2600.
Compared to the Radeon HD 2600 GDDR4, the memory-clock was increase from 1100MHz to 1150MHz while the 800MHz core-clock is now 850MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 4% performance boost when compared to the reference card.
