In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6800 XT are marginally better than the Intel HD Graphics Desktop (Sandy Bridge).

The Graphics Desktop was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 6800 XT, 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 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 Graphics Desktop does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics Desktop (Sandy Bridge) has 6 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6800 XT has 12. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics Desktop is 24 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6800 XT is 4. The Graphics Desktop having 20 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 6800 XT.

The HD Graphics Desktop (Sandy Bridge) requires 65 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 6800 XT.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel HD Graphics Desktop (Sandy Bridge) are integrated graphics in the budget Celeron and Pentium Sandy Bridge Desktop 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.
More details to be added soon.
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.
