In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 3100 are very slightly better than the Intel GM965 Express Chipset.

The Radeon HD 3100 was released over a year more recently than the GM965 Express Chipset, and so the Radeon HD 3100 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 Radeon HD 3100 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 Radeon HD 3100, which means that the memory performance of the GM965 Express Chipset is slightly better than the Radeon HD 3100.

The Radeon HD 3100 has 40 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 Radeon HD 3100.
