In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD i3 2125 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 6600 GT.

The HD i3 2125 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 6600 GT, and so the HD i3 2125 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 HD i3 2125 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce 6600 GT has 11 Shader Processing Units but the HD i3 2125 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce 6600 GT requires 48 Watts to run but there is no entry for the HD i3 2125.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewHD i3 2125 is a specific version of the Intel HD 3000 Graphics that comes with the CPU 'Core i3-2125 3.3GHz'. It uses the CPU's Level 3 Cache (up to 3 MB, in this case) + part of the RAM installed on the system up to a maximum of approximately 1.7GB for Vista/7 and 1 GB for XP. The Memory controller supports DDR3-1066 and DDR3-1333 and the Dynamic Frequency Technology of the processor can over-clock the graphics card clock from 850MHz to 1100MHz. Nevertheless it's still an integrated GPU with shared memory so its performance is very limited. Still, demanding games like Crysis 2 should still run on the lowest settings.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.
