In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6600 GT are significantly better than the Intel GMA 3100.

The GMA 3100 was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 6600 GT, and so the GMA 3100 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 6600 GT.

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 GMA 3100 has 128 MB more video memory than the GeForce 6600 GT, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GeForce 6600 GT has superior memory performance.

The GeForce 6600 GT has 15.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GMA 3100, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 6600 GT is slightly better than the GMA 3100.

The GMA 3100 has 128 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6600 GT has 11. However, the actual shader performance of the GMA 3100 is 51 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6600 GT is 6. The GMA 3100 having 45 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce 6600 GT performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GMA 3100 requires 17 Watts to run and the GeForce 6600 GT requires 48 Watts. The GeForce 6600 GT requires 31 Watts more than the GMA 3100 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 GMA 3100.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe Intel Graphics Media Accelerator, or GMA, is Intel's current line of integrated graphics processors built into various motherboard chipsets. These integrated graphics products allow a computer to be built without a separate graphics card, which can reduce cost, power consumption and noise. They are commonly found on low-priced notebook and desktop computers as well as business computers, which do not need high levels of graphics capability. 90% of all PCs sold have integrated graphics. They rely on the computer's main memory for storage, which imposes a performance penalty, as both the CPU and GPU have to access memory over the same bus.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.
