In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6800 XT are significantly better than the Intel GMA X4500.

The GMA X4500 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 6800 XT, and so the GMA X4500 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 6800 XT 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 GeForce 6800 XT has 256 MB video memory, but the GMA X4500 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GMA X4500 has 10 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6800 XT has 12. However, the actual shader performance of the GMA X4500 is 8 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6800 XT is 4. The GMA X4500 having 4 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce 6800 XT performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe Intel Graphics Media Accelerator, or GMA, is Intel's current line of integrated graphics processors built into various motherboard chipsets.
These integrated graphics products allow a computer to be built without a separate graphics card, which can reduce cost, power consumption and noise. They are commonly found on low-priced notebook and desktop computers as well as business computers, which do not need high levels of graphics capability. 90% of all PCs sold have integrated graphics. They rely on the computer's main memory for storage, which imposes a performance penalty, as both the CPU and GPU have to access memory over the same bus.
The groundbreaking new NVIDIA GeForce 6800 graphics processing units (GPUs) and their revolutionary technologies power worlds where reality and fantasy meet; worlds in which new standards are set for visual realism and quality, performance, and video functionality. The GeForce 6800 GPUs deliver powerful, elegant graphics to drench your senses, immersing you in unparalleled worlds of visual effects for the ultimate PC experience.
