In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel GMA 4500M HD are significantly better than the Intel GM965 Express Chipset.

The GMA 4500M HD was released over a year more recently than the GM965 Express Chipset, and so the GMA 4500M HD 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 GMA 4500M HD has 384 MB video memory, but the GM965 Express Chipset does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GMA 4500M HD has 10 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 but there is no entry for the GMA 4500M HD.

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 Mobile Intel GM45 Express Chipset, featuring the Mobile Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD, delivers:
* Blu-ray logo capable HD video playback, with native support for Blu-ray drives.
* Great 3D graphics performance, delivering over 3X scores on 3D Mark.
* Intel Clear Video Technology for excellent video quality.
