In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Mobility Radeon X2500 are massively better than the Intel GM965 Express Chipset.

The Mobility Radeon X2500 was released less than a year after the GM965 Express Chipset, 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 Mobility Radeon X2500 has 256 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 Mobility Radeon X2500 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 Mobility Radeon X2500.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewMobility Radeon X2500 is technically the successor to Mobility Radeon X1600 and offers 12 Shading Units but its performance is lower due to the slower memory type.Intel 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.
