Intel HD 4600

Thanks to our GPU Benchmark, we have measured the Intel HD 4600 as a bad gaming performer a score of 2%.

In terms of clock speed, the HD 4600 GPU core runs at a frequency of 400 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1100 MHz. The clock runs at a speed called the clock speed. It dictates the number of updates per second that the GPU can process. Overclocking a chip, which means increasing the clock speed will improve the performance. However, thermals and power efficiency may be diminished.

As for rendering API support, the HD 4600 supports up to DirectX 12.0. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.3 features are supported. Newer APIs are usually more efficient, allowing for better performance in games and better graphical effects.

The Intel HD 4600 has a TDP of 45W, this is the amount of heat energy produced by the chip as a byproduct. The higher the TDP, the more heat is produced.
