In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel 865G are significantly better than the Nvidia Vanta LT.

The 865G was released over three years more recently than the Vanta LT, and so the 865G is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Vanta LT when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very poor performance, so rather than upgrading from one to the other you should consider looking at more powerful GPUs. Neither of these will be able to run the latest games in any playable way.

The Vanta LT and the 865G have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Vanta LT has 800 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 865G, which means that the memory performance of the Vanta LT is massively better than the 865G.

The Vanta LT has 2 Shader Processing Units and the 865G has 0. The two GPUs are based on different architectures, but deliver an equivalent shader performance. To compare, we must continue to look at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, we sadly do not have enough data in this area to complete the comparison.

The 865G requires 13 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Vanta LT.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe NVIDIA Vanta is a low-cost, 128-bit TwiN Texel, highly integrated 3D graphics processor, designed specifically for value-conscious users. Leveraging the NVIDIA TNT architecture, NVIDIA Vanta delivers breakthrough 3D and industry-leading 2D graphics performance, making it ideal for today's basic desktop PC. The NVIDIA Vanta comes in 4-16MB configurations. Intel 865G comes embedded on the Pentium 4, Pentium D, Pentium Extreme Edition, Celeron, Celeron D CPUS and features an Integrated GPU called Intel Extreme Graphics 2.
It only supports DirectX up to 7.0 so even DirectX 8/9 games aren't (hardware) supported. The performance is ridiculous and even very old games (before 2003) might require reduced settings. Today's games are, obviously, unplayable.
