In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel G43 Express Chipset are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 8300.

The G43 Express Chipset was released less than a year after the GeForce 8300, 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 G43 Express Chipset and the GeForce 8300 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The memory bandwidth of the G43 Express Chipset and the GeForce 8300 are the same, which means the G43 Express Chipset and the GeForce 8300 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

Both the G43 Express Chipset and the GeForce 8300 have 0 Shader Processing Units. The two GPUs are based on different architectures, but deliver an equivalent shader performance. To compare, we must continue to look at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, we sadly do not have enough data in this area to complete the comparison.

The G43 Express Chipset requires 24 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 8300.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel G43 Express Chipset comes embedded on the Core 2 Quad/Core 2 Duo CPUS and features an Integrated GPU called Intel GMA X4500.
Due to its characteristics (e.g. Shared Memory) the performance is very limited but might be enough to play today's games at low settings excluding, however, very demanding games like Metro 2033 or The Witcher II, that are unplayable, even at the lowest settings.
An NVIDIA® GeForce® 8300 motherboard GPU delivers the power of a discrete GeForce GPU with up to 60% more graphics performance than entry-level graphics cards. Enjoy Windows Vista™ and today’s popular games with DirectX® 10 and watch the latest Blu-ray and HD DVD titles with PureVideo® HD technology. And get the most advanced core logic with Gigabit Ethernet featuring FirstPacket™ technology and MediaShield™ storage technology with RAID5 support.
