In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD i5 6400T are significantly better than the AMD FireGL V7700.

The HD i5 6400T was released over three years more recently than the FireGL V7700, and so the HD i5 6400T is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the FireGL V7700 when running the latest games.

The FireGL V7700 has 512 MB video memory, but the HD i5 6400T does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD i5 6400T has 24 Shader Processing Units and the FireGL V7700 has 320. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i5 6400T is 182 and the actual shader performance of the FireGL V7700 is 161. The HD i5 6400T having 21 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the FireGL V7700 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The HD i5 6400T requires 35 Watts to run but there is no entry for the FireGL V7700. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the HD i5 6400T and a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the FireGL V7700. The FireGL V7700 has been recommended a PSU with 50 Watts more than the HD i5 6400T. The difference is significant enough that the FireGL V7700 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the HD i5 6400T.

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.
The ATI FireGL range of video cards, renamed to FirePro 3D in late 2008, is the series specifically for CAD (Computer Aided Design) and DCC (Digital Content Creation) software, usually found in workstations. The FireGL line is designed for multimedia content creation programs, such as 3DS Max, and mechanical engineering design software such as Solidworks, whereas Radeon counterparts are suited towards video games. FireGL drivers were built with maximum image quality and pixel precision, with CAD specific functionalities such as the recently introduced AutoDetection Technology to tune the parameters inside the driver to achieve maximum performance for predefined list of software. However, because the drivers are also based on the Catalyst drivers made for the Radeon line, it makes them suitable for gaming, at the expense of probable compatibility issues with the very latest games due to the age of the drivers, with FireGL cards in theory pushing more data than their Radeon gaming counterparts.
