In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel Q43 Express Chipset are very slightly better than the Nvidia Quadro NVS 420.

The Quadro NVS 420 was released less than a year after the Q43 Express Chipset, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance 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 Quadro NVS 420 has 512 MB video memory, but the Q43 Express Chipset does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Quadro NVS 420 has 16 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 Quadro NVS 420 requires 40 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Q43 Express Chipset. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the Quadro NVS 420, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the Q43 Express Chipset.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel 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.
The NVIDIA Quadro NVS 420 quad-display business graphics solution, designed for small form factor systems, delivers reliable hardware and software for a stable business environment. Tested on leading business applications, Quadro NVS 420 is capable of driving up to four 30’’ displays at 2560x1600 resolution and is designed to meet the needs of today’s most demanding business user.
