In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6600 GT are marginally better than the Intel HD Graphics Desktop (Bay Trail).

The Graphics Desktop was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 6600 GT, and so the Graphics Desktop 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 Graphics Desktop does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics Desktop (Bay Trail) has 4 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6600 GT has 11. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics Desktop is 18 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6600 GT is 6. The Graphics Desktop having 12 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Graphics Desktop delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 6600 GT.

The HD Graphics Desktop (Bay Trail) requires 10 Watts to run and the GeForce 6600 GT requires 48 Watts. The GeForce 6600 GT requires 38 Watts more than the Graphics Desktop to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce 6600 GT may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Graphics Desktop.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel HD Graphics Desktop (Bay Trail) are integrated graphics in the low-end Atoms and nettop processors.

Their performance depends on the processor they are integrated on, as the latter defines the Base and Boost Clock, as well as on the SYSTEM RAM, which defines the operating memory clock, and whether the GPU accesses a 64-bit or 128-bit memory interface.
The Graphics Card also shares the processor's L2 Cache of 4MB. Therefore, it reduces the need to resort to its memory bandwidth.

Best case scenario, the Intel HD Graphics Desktop (Bay Trail) perform only slightly below the Intel HD 2000 Graphics and so most modern demanding games will have to be played with the lowest settings, while some aren't even playable.
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.
