In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition are massively better than the Intel HD i5 6400.

The GTX 560 Ti has a 550 MHz higher core clock speed and 48 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD i5 6400. This results in the GTX 560 Ti providing 52 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 GTX 560 Ti has a 550 MHz higher core clock speed and 24 more Render Output Units than the HD i5 6400. This results in the GTX 560 Ti providing 26 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 i5 6400 was released over three years more recently than the GTX 560 Ti, and so the HD i5 6400 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GTX 560 Ti when running the latest games.

The GTX 560 Ti has 1024 MB video memory, but the HD i5 6400 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD i5 6400 has 24 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i5 6400 is 182 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is 691. The GTX 560 Ti having 509 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 560 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD i5 6400.

The HD i5 6400 transistor size technology is 26 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 560 Ti. This means that the HD i5 6400 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 560 Ti.

The HD i5 6400 requires 65 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the HD i5 6400.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD i5 6400 is the specific version of Intel HD Graphics 530 Desktop that is integrated in the Core i5-6400 Processor.

Architecture
The Skylake Core includes support for DirectX 12.1, OpenCL 2.0 and OpenGL 4.4. Additionally, it also supports DDR4 Memory.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GT2-R0 which offers 24 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 350MHz and goes up to 950MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies from laptop to laptop. 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 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 1067MHz.
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 almost on level with a dedicated GeForce 920M.

System Suggestions
Intel HD i5 6400 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend a Decent Processor and 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition is one of the many special editions of GeForce GTX 560 Ti.
The new features include a new cooling system and an increase in the core-clock from 822MHz to 900MHz.
Benchmarks indicate the performance is around 5% better than the standard edition.
