In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics 5000 Mobile are very slightly better than the Intel HD i5 4200H.

The HD i5 4200H has a 200 MHz higher core clock speed than the Graphics 5000, but both GPUs exhibit the same Texture Fill Rate. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The HD i5 4200H has a 200 MHz higher core clock speed than the Graphics 5000, but both GPUs exhibit the same Pixel Fill Rate. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The HD i5 4200H was released less than a year after the Graphics 5000, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The HD i5 4200H and the HD Graphics 5000 Mobile 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 HD i5 4200H and the HD Graphics 5000 Mobile are the same, which means the HD i5 4200H and the Graphics 5000 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

The HD i5 4200H has 20 Shader Processing Units and the HD Graphics 5000 Mobile has 40. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i5 4200H is 92 and the actual shader performance of the Graphics 5000 is 176. The Graphics 5000 having 84 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Graphics 5000 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD i5 4200H.

The HD i5 4200H requires 47 Watts to run and the HD Graphics 5000 Mobile requires 15 Watts. The HD i5 4200H requires 32 Watts more than the Graphics 5000 to run. The difference is significant enough that the HD i5 4200H may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Graphics 5000.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD i5 4200H is the Specific Version of Intel HD Graphics 4600 Mobile that is integrated in the Core i5-4200H Processor.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GT2 which offers 20 Shader Processing Units, 4 TMUs and 2 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 400MHz and goes up to 1150MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies from laptop to laptop. Typically, the GPU reserves 1GB. 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 the at 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
Gaming benchmarks put its performance on average with a dedicated GeForce GT 540M.

System Suggestions
We recommend 4GB of RAM for a System with Intel HD i5 4200H.
Overview
Intel HD Graphics 5000 Mobile are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's ULV Haswell Processors.

Architecture
The Haswell GT3 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.
