In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel 865G are significantly better than the AMD Rage 128 Ultra 16MB.

The 865G was released over three years more recently than the 128 Ultra, and so the 865G is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the 128 Ultra 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 865G and the Rage 128 Ultra 16MB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The 128 Ultra has 1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 865G, which means that the memory performance of the 128 Ultra is marginally better than the 865G.

Both the 865G and the Rage 128 Ultra 16MB 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 865G requires 13 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Rage 128 Ultra 16MB.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel 865G comes embedded on the Pentium 4, Pentium D, Pentium Extreme Edition, Celeron, Celeron D CPUS and features an Integrated GPU called Intel Extreme Graphics 2.
It only supports DirectX up to 7.0 so even DirectX 8/9 games aren't (hardware) supported. The performance is ridiculous and even very old games (before 2003) might require reduced settings. Today's games are, obviously, unplayable.
AMD desktop processors ignite the next generation of solutions. Whether it's playing games, cloud computing or editing home videos, enjoy a better experience with AMD multi-core processors.
Redefine the way you play on your desktop computer and take HD gaming to the extreme with the performance of ATI graphics cards from AMD.
