In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel 865G are significantly better than the Intel 82845G.

The 865G was released less than a year after the 82845G, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance 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 865G has 16 MB video memory, but the 82845G does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The 82845G has 2 Shader Processing Units and the 865G has 0. The two GPUs are based on different architectures, but deliver an equivalent shader performance. To compare, we must continue to look at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, we sadly do not have enough data in this area to complete the comparison.

The 82845G requires 6 Watts to run and the 865G requires 13 Watts. The 865G requires 7 Watts more than the 82845G to run. The difference is not significant enough for the 865G to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the 82845G.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel 82845G comes embedded on the Pentium 4, Celeron and Celeron D CPUs and features an Integrated GPU called Intel Extreme Graphics.
It only supports DirectX up to 7.0 and the performance depends on the CPU it's embedded. It only supports DDR so the memory bandwidth is really low.
Today's modern games are unplayable, even at the lowest settings.
Intel 865G comes embedded on the Pentium 4, Pentium D, Pentium Extreme Edition, Celeron, Celeron D CPUS and features an Integrated GPU called Intel Extreme Graphics 2.
It only supports DirectX up to 7.0 so even DirectX 8/9 games aren't (hardware) supported. The performance is ridiculous and even very old games (before 2003) might require reduced settings. Today's games are, obviously, unplayable.
