In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6800 Ultra are noticeably better than the Intel HD Graphics 3000 Desktop.

The Graphics 3000 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 6800 Ultra, and so the Graphics 3000 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 6800 Ultra when running the latest games.

The GeForce 6800 Ultra has 256 MB video memory, but the Graphics 3000 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics 3000 Desktop has 12 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6800 Ultra has 22. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics 3000 is 65 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6800 Ultra is 9. The Graphics 3000 having 56 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce 6800 Ultra performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The HD Graphics 3000 Desktop requires 95 Watts to run and the GeForce 6800 Ultra requires 124 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Graphics 3000. The GeForce 6800 Ultra requires 29 Watts more than the Graphics 3000 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce 6800 Ultra to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Graphics 3000.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD Graphics 3000 Desktop are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's Desktop Sandy Bridge Processors.

Architecture
The Sandy Bridge GT2 Core includes support for DirectX 10.1 and OpenGL 3.1. Additionally, it also offers better Video Encoding and Decoding Performance, when compared to its Predecessor.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GT2 which offers 12 Shader Processing Units, 2 TMUs and 2 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 850MHz and goes up to 1350MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies from System to System. Typically, the GPU reserves 1.7GB. Depending on whether or not the system's RAM is Dual-Channeled, it can access either a 64-bit or 128-bit memory interface. The operating memory clock also depends on which speed the System's RAM is running and is limited by the highest operating speed that the Processor supports. In this case, it is 667MHz.
It is then obvious the Memory Bandwidth depends on a lot of factors and thus this Graphics Card performance may vary heavily from system to system.

Performance
The Most Powerful Variant Offers Performance similar to a dedicated GeForce GT 610.
Select the Specific Version you have of this Graphics Card According to your Processor for a more Accurate Rank and experience using our tools.

System Suggestions
We recommend 4GB of RAM for a system with Intel HD Graphics 3000 Desktop.
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.
