In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro FX 380 are significantly better than the Intel G43 Express Chipset.

The Quadro FX 380 was released less than a year after the G43 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 FX 380 has 256 MB video memory, but the G43 Express Chipset does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Quadro FX 380 has 16 Shader Processing Units but the G43 Express Chipset does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The G43 Express Chipset requires 24 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 380 requires 34 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Quadro FX 380, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the G43 Express Chipset. The Quadro FX 380 requires 10 Watts more than the G43 Express Chipset to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Quadro FX 380 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the G43 Express Chipset.

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.
Digital artists and designers can now create stunning 3D designs from a professional platform. Enabling EnergyStar compliance, Quadro FX 380 provides extreme power efficiency to save you money. Certified on all industry-leading applications and featuring automatic configuration of display settings, Quadro FX 380 provides both power efficiency and performance.
