In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 9100M are very slightly better than the Intel GM965 Express Chipset.

The GeForce 9100M was released over a year more recently than the GM965 Express Chipset, and so the GeForce 9100M is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GM965 Express Chipset.

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 GM965 Express Chipset and the GeForce 9100M have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GM965 Express Chipset has 10.7 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 9100M, which means that the memory performance of the GM965 Express Chipset is slightly better than the GeForce 9100M.

The GeForce 9100M has 8 Shader Processing Units but the GM965 Express Chipset does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GM965 Express Chipset requires 14 Watts to run and the GeForce 9100M requires 12 Watts. The GM965 Express Chipset requires 2 Watts more than the GeForce 9100M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GM965 Express Chipset to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce 9100M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel GM965 Express Chipset comes with most Core 2 Duo Mobile and with an integrated GMA X3100. Its performance is horrible and not recommended to any of today's games.The NVIDIA GeForce 9100M G motherboard GPU brings enhanced system performance to the value segment. Enjoy a Blu-ray movie with NVIDIA PureVideo HD. When combined with a GeForce 9M series discrete GPU with Hybrid SLI technology, system performance level can increase supporting visually-intense applications and game-play without breaking your wallet. This product is also enabled for CUDA applications.
