Advantages of NVIDIA Quadro M4000M

606% faster (about 7 times) in synthetic tests
800% faster (about 9 times) in games
Wider memory bus (256 vs 64 bit)
Vulkan (a contemporary API for graphics acceleration, based on now-discontinued Mantle)

Advantages of Intel HD Graphics 6000

More pipelines (48 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)

So, Quadro M4000M or HD Graphics 6000?

Judging by the results of synthetic and gaming tests, Technical City recommends NVIDIA Quadro M4000M.
