In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel GM965 Express Chipset are marginally better than the Intel GMA 3650.

The GMA 3650 was released over three years more recently than the GM965 Express Chipset, and so the GMA 3650 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 GMA 3650 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 2.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GMA 3650, which means that the memory performance of the GM965 Express Chipset is marginally better than the GMA 3650.

The GMA 3650 has 4 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 3650.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel GMA 3650 is a mobile GFX integrated on Atom's high-end CedarView based CPUs.
It's based on the 32nm PowerVR architecture and offers 4 Pixel Shaders, 2 TMUs and 2 ROPs. The central unit runs at 640MHz. The memory clock will operate at up to 533MHz (max memory speed supported by the CPU).
It should only be compatible with DirectX 10 & 11 via software as it's not based in a Shader unified architecture.
It performs just a tad bit better than GMA 3600 and none of today's modern demanding games are playable and even modest games will be trouble for this GPU. Its performance is surprisingly below AMD's and NVIDIA's 2008 entry-level/motherboard GPUs.
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.
