Gaming performance

Let's see how good Radeon 530 and HD Graphics 620 are for gaming. Particular gaming benchmark results are measured in FPS.

Advantages of AMD Radeon 530

2.2% faster in synthetic tests
Somewhat newer (21 March 2017 vs 30 August 2016)
More pipelines (384 vs 24)
DirectX 12
Mantle (an API developed by AMD for 3D graphics acceleration. Discontinued and later superceded by Vulkan)
OpenGL
OpenCL 1.2 (Open Computing Language - an API for GPU usage in arbitrary calculations, e.g. for physics simulation)
Vulkan (a contemporary API for graphics acceleration, based on now-discontinued Mantle)

Advantages of Intel HD Graphics 620

Finer manufacturing process technology (14 vs 28 nm)
Less power hungry (15 vs 50 watts)
Quick Sync (hardware acceleration of video encoding and decoding for Intel CPUs. Speeds up video encoding by times, but at the cost of somewhat lower quality)
