In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics 4400 Desktop are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 520 Asus Silent Low Profile 2GB Edition.

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

The GT 520 was released less than a year after the Graphics 4400, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GT 520 has 2048 MB video memory, but the Graphics 4400 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce GT 520 Asus Silent Low Profile 2GB Edition has 48 Shader Processing Units and the HD Graphics 4400 Desktop has 80. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 520 is 78 and the actual shader performance of the Graphics 4400 is 0. The GT 520 having 78 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Graphics 4400 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Graphics 4400 transistor size technology is 18 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 520. This means that the Graphics 4400 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 520.

The GeForce GT 520 Asus Silent Low Profile 2GB Edition requires 29 Watts to run but there is no entry for the HD Graphics 4400 Desktop. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 520.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 520 Asus Silent Low Profile 2GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Entry-Level GeForce GT 520, created by Asus.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit runs at the same speed.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock runs at 600MHz and the Frame Buffer was raised to 2GB. This is a gimmick and in no way benefits the GPU.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling System has been replaced by Asus' OdB Silent Cooling, meaning the Graphics Card is silent under load.

Without Overclocking Out of The Box, GeForce GT 520 Asus Silent Low Profile 2GB Edition is as fast as the reference GeForce GT 520.
Intel 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.
