In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro NVS 295 are marginally better than the Intel G43 Express Chipset.

The Quadro NVS 295 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 NVS 295 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 NVS 295 has 8 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 NVS 295 requires 23 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Quadro NVS 295, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the G43 Express Chipset. The G43 Express Chipset requires 1 Watts more than the Quadro NVS 295 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the G43 Express Chipset to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Quadro NVS 295.

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.
Delivering a reliable hardware and software platform, Quadro NVS 295 is designed to meet the needs of today’s most demanding business user. Featuring NVIDIA nView display management software and support for up to two 30’’ displays at 2560x1600 resolutions, business professionals can maximize productivity through increased desktop real estate and advanced application management tools. Tested on industry-leading business applications, Quadro NVS 295 provides a stable business environment.
