In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 750M 2GB GDDR5 are massively better than the Intel HD M5-6Y57.

The GT 750M has a 641 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD M5-6Y57. This results in the GT 750M providing 25.3 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 GT 750M has a 641 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the HD M5-6Y57. This results in the GT 750M providing 12.7 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 HD M5-6Y57 was released over a year more recently than the GT 750M, and so the HD M5-6Y57 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GT 750M.

The GT 750M has 2048 MB video memory, but the HD M5-6Y57 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD M5-6Y57 has 24 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 750M 2GB GDDR5 has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the HD M5-6Y57 is 173 and the actual shader performance of the GT 750M is 406. The GT 750M having 233 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GT 750M delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD M5-6Y57.

The HD M5-6Y57 transistor size technology is 14 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 750M. This means that the HD M5-6Y57 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 750M.

The HD M5-6Y57 requires 5 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 750M 2GB GDDR5 requires 50 Watts. The GT 750M requires 45 Watts more than the HD M5-6Y57 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GT 750M may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the HD M5-6Y57.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD M5-6Y57 is the specific version of Intel HD Graphics 515 Mobile that is integrated in the Core M5-6Y57 Processor.

The Skylake Architecture succeeds the Broadwell Architecture and aims for increased CPU and Graphics Performance, within the same Power Requirements. It includes support for DirectX 12.1, OpenCL 2.0 and OpenGL 4.4, as well as DDR4 Memory Support.
The GPU Codenamed GT2-Y offers 24 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs.

The Central Unit Initially Runs at 300MHz and goes up to 900MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory: Speed
The Operating Memory Clock depends at which speed the System's RAM is running and which Memory Type is installed and is ultimately limited by the highest operating speed that the Processor supports. In this case, it is 933MHz.
Depending on whether or not the System's RAM is Dual-Channeled, it can access either a 64-bit or 128-bit Memory Interface.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies according to the System. The GPU may reserve up to 1.7GB.

Because Performance depends heavily on the Memory Bandwidth, it may vary heavily from System to System.
Best Case Scenario, expect Performance Identical to a dedicated GeForce GT 525M.

System Suggestions
Intel HD M5-6Y57 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
GeForce GT 750M v4 is a Fast-Middle-Class Mobile Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Kepler Architecture.

The Kepler Architecture was NVIDIA's big step to power efficiency. Each Stream Multiprocessor (SMX) now hosts 192 Shader Processing Units - against the 48 of older Fermi Architecture, and has been redesigned being now clocked at the same speed of the Central Unit. This means they are more energy efficient and will consequently lead to cooler operating temperatures. However, it also means they are weaker. It can be said that one Fermi SMX is as fast as 2 Kepler SMXs.
Additionally, and not available in all GPUs, Kepler also introduced the Boost Clock Feature. The Boost Clock is an even higher Clock Speed activated when in gaming mode and becomes the effective speed of the GPU.

It equips a GPU Codenamed GK107-N14P-GT which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is initially clocked at 941MHz and goes up to 1058MHz, in Turbo Mode.

The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 1000MHz.

DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, Kepler Boost, Optimus, CUDA, OpenCL, DirectCompute, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 50W, it is suited for average sized laptops.

GeForce GT 750M v2 is essentially a fast GeForce GTX 660M.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance is only slightly below the desktop GeForce GTX 650.

System Suggestions
We recommend a decent processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 750M v4.
