Both of these chips are desktop models, thus my comment was aimed at the desktop models.
Dylan says: "Haswell i5 and i7 chips utilize an HD 4600 graphics chip" Dylan don't know laptops :) see HD4400 (clearly less performance and power consumption than the 4600). My i7-4300U is running that now, all haswell i5/i7 4***U chips run this as of now.
All Haswell i5 and i7 chips utilize an HD 4600 graphics chip, but then again, this site has never been great. Don't get your expectations up for this place, trust me.
All good, however, the 4590S should still say that is has intel graphics 4600 instead of 4000 http://ark.intel.com/products/80816/Intel-Core-i5-4590S-Processor-6M-Cache-up-to-3_70-GHz
In that case, I apologize.
At the time of my comment the specs on this page were different. On the good side it looks like they've changed it.
It isn't?
Something's up here... the 4950S is underclocked and has an intel rated tdp of 65 watts. The 4590 is clocked normally with an intel rated tdp of 84 watts. How exactly is the 4590S getting better scores than its higher performance counterpart?
