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

The GMA 4500M was released over a year more recently than the GM965 Express Chipset, and so the GMA 4500M 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 and the GM965 Express Chipset 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 GMA 4500M, which means that the memory performance of the GM965 Express Chipset is slightly better than the GMA 4500M.

The GMA 4500M 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.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel GMA 4500M is an embedded GPU on the Intel GM40 and GL40 chipsets.
Its performance depends on the system ram installed but overall only forgiving modern games can be played with bearable FPS.
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.
