In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel Iris Pro Graphics 5200 Desktop are noticeably better than the Intel HD i5 6400T.

The Pro Graphics has a 50 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD i5 6400T, but the HD i5 6400T has 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the Pro Graphics. As a result, the HD i5 6400T exhibits a 2.4 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the Pro Graphics. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The Pro Graphics has a 50 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD i5 6400T, but the HD i5 6400T has 4 more Render Output Units than the Pro Graphics. As a result, the HD i5 6400T exhibits a 1.2 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the Pro Graphics. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The HD i5 6400T was released over a year more recently than the Pro Graphics, and so the HD i5 6400T is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Pro Graphics.

The HD i5 6400T and the Iris Pro Graphics 5200 Desktop have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The HD i5 6400T has 8.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Pro Graphics, which means that the memory performance of the HD i5 6400T is marginally better than the Pro Graphics.

The HD i5 6400T has 24 Shader Processing Units and the Iris Pro Graphics 5200 Desktop has 160. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i5 6400T is 182 and the actual shader performance of the Pro Graphics is 314. The Pro Graphics having 132 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the HD i5 6400T performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The HD i5 6400T transistor size technology is 8 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Pro Graphics. This means that the HD i5 6400T is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Pro Graphics.

The HD i5 6400T requires 35 Watts to run and the Iris Pro Graphics 5200 Desktop requires 28 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the HD i5 6400T. The HD i5 6400T requires 7 Watts more than the Pro Graphics to run. The difference is not significant enough for the HD i5 6400T to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Pro Graphics.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD i5 6400T is the specific version of Intel HD Graphics 530 Desktop that is integrated in the Core i5-6400T 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 6400T is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend a Decent Processor and 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Iris Pro Graphics 5200 Desktop are found in some of the 2013 Haswell desktop processors.
They feature 40 Execution Units (160 Shader Processing Units), 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. They share system memory and so the memory channel and speed will depend on the users configuration. The best possible combination is a dual-channel bus-width with an operating memory clock of 800MHz.
Its central unit and turbo frequency also depend on the CPU its embedded but it ranges from 400MHz to 1300MHz.
Compared to Iris Graphics 5100 Desktop, they offer an additional eDRAM cache of 128MB and so might offer performance identical to a dedicated GeForce GT 640 or a Radeon HD 6670.
