In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Xeon E3-1235 are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce 6800 XT.

The HD Xeon E3-1235 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 6800 XT, and so the HD Xeon E3-1235 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 6800 XT 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 GeForce 6800 XT has 256 MB video memory, but the HD Xeon E3-1235 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

Both the HD Xeon E3-1235 and the GeForce 6800 XT have 12 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the HD Xeon E3-1235 is 32 and by the GeForce 6800 XT is 4. Knowing that the shader performance of the HD Xeon E3-1235 is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewHD Xeon E3-1235 is a specific version of the Intel HD P3000 Graphics that comes with the CPU 'Intel Xeon E3-1235'.
Based on the Sandy Bridge architecture, it also features 12 Shader Processing Units, supports openGL up to 3.1, Shader up to 4.0 and DirectX 10.1. Just like other integrated GPUs, it uses system memory and the max memory supported is DDR3-1333, meaning the max memory speed is 667MHz. The CPUs only supports up to dual-channel memory, meaning a 128 bits bus is the largest bus width supported. It comes clocked at 850MHz but the Turbo Boost of the CPU can set it up to 1350MHz.
Benchmarks indicate its performance is on level with an entry-level NVIDIA GeForce GT 410M.
The groundbreaking new NVIDIA GeForce 6800 graphics processing units (GPUs) and their revolutionary technologies power worlds where reality and fantasy meet; worlds in which new standards are set for visual realism and quality, performance, and video functionality. The GeForce 6800 GPUs deliver powerful, elegant graphics to drench your senses, immersing you in unparalleled worlds of visual effects for the ultimate PC experience.
