In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel GM965 Express Chipset are noticeably better than the Intel HD Pentium P6000.

The HD Pentium P6000 was released over three years more recently than the GM965 Express Chipset, and so the HD Pentium P6000 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GM965 Express Chipset 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 GM965 Express Chipset and the HD Pentium P6000 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The HD Pentium P6000 has 6.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GM965 Express Chipset, which means that the memory performance of the HD Pentium P6000 is marginally better than the GM965 Express Chipset.

The HD Pentium P6000 has 12 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 HD Pentium P6000.

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.HD Pentium P6000 is the specific version of the 'GMA5700M' that comes with the CPU 'Intel Pentium P6000 1.87GHz'. <br/> Its default clock is 500MHz and the turbo boost technology will set it to 766MHz if necessary. With no dedicated memory, it uses system memory up to 1 GB on Windows XP and 1.7GB on Windows Vista/7. Since it uses system ram and the max frequency it supports is 1066MHz, the max memory clock is 533MHz.
Unlike the second gen 'Intel HD Graphics 2000/3000', very demanding games might not run at all and only very old games will run on high settings smoothly.
