In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics Desktop (Bay Trail) are very slightly better than the Intel Q43 Express Chipset.

The Graphics Desktop was released over three years more recently than the Q43 Express Chipset, 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 Q43 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 HD Graphics Desktop (Bay Trail) and the Q43 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 Graphics Desktop has 21.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Q43 Express Chipset, which means that the memory performance of the Graphics Desktop is slightly better than the Q43 Express Chipset.

The Graphics Desktop has 4 Shader Processing Units but the Q43 Express Chipset does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics Desktop (Bay Trail) requires 10 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Q43 Express Chipset.

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.
Intel Q43 Express Chipset comes embedded on the Intel Core 2 Quad/Core 2 Duo CPUS and features an Integrated GPU called Intel GMA X4500.
Various Intel Chipsets come with the Intel GMA X4500 but this one (and the Q45) seem to deliver the best performance. However, due to its characteristics (e.g. Shared Memory) the performance is still very limited but might be enough to play today's games at low or medium settings excluding, however, very demanding games like Metro 2033 or The Witcher II, that are probably unplayable, even at the lowest settings.
Note 1: Intel GMA X4500 does support DirectX 10 but even the most forgiving games might be unplayable due to the demand level.
