Intel HD 530
The HD 530 is a GPU from Intel. This chip has a bad gaming score at 2% in our GPU benchmark.
In terms of clock speed, the HD 530 GPU core runs at a frequency of 350 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 950 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 530 supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.4 features are supported. Newer APIs are usually more efficient, allowing for better performance in games and better graphical effects.
This chip has a Thermal Design Power of 15W: the total amount of waste heat generated. A card that runs hotter will need better cooling and will draw more power from the wall.
