In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics P3000 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 6600 GT.

The HD Graphics P3000 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 6600 GT, and so the HD Graphics P3000 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 6600 GT 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 6600 GT has 128 MB video memory, but the HD Graphics P3000 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics P3000 has 12 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6600 GT has 11. However, the actual shader performance of the HD Graphics P3000 is 32 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6600 GT is 6. The HD Graphics P3000 having 26 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD Graphics P3000 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 6600 GT.

The GeForce 6600 GT requires 48 Watts to run but there is no entry for the HD Graphics P3000.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel HD Graphics P3000 is an integrated GFX on some of Intel's Xeon Server CPUs.
Based on the Sandy Bridge architecture, it features 12 Shader Processing Units, supports openGL up to 3.1, Shader up to 4.0 and DirectX 10.1. Just like other integrated GPUs, it uses system memory and the max memory supported is DDR3-1333, meaning the max memory speed is 667MHz. The CPUs only support up to dual-channel memory, meaning a 128 bits bus is the largest bus width supported. It comes clocked at 850MHz but the Turbo Boost of the CPU can set it up to 1350MHz.
The performance depends on the CPU its embedded and on the type of system ram installed but overall is on level with NVIDIA'S old entry level GPUs.
Supercharge your gaming with the power of an NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GPU. The NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GPUs deliver best-in-class performance and advanced visual effects for next-generation games. The only GPU in its class with support for Microsoft DirectX 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 and with support for PCI Express, the GeForce 6600 delivers ultra-realistic effects, unmatched features, and rock-solid stability so you can play your game the way itís meant to be played.
