Advantages of NVIDIA Quadro M4000M

Wider memory bus (256 vs 64 bit)
Vulkan (a contemporary API for graphics acceleration, based on now-discontinued Mantle)

Advantages of Intel HD Graphics 515

More pipelines (24 vs 1)
Finer manufacturing process technology (14 vs 28 nm)
QuickSync (hardware acceleration of video encoding and decoding for Intel CPUs. Speeds up video encoding by times, but at the cost of somewhat lower quality)
