In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD FireGL 8800 are massively better than the Intel 865G.

The 865G was released over a year more recently than the FireGL 8800, and so the 865G is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the FireGL 8800.

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 FireGL 8800 has 112 MB more video memory than the 865G, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the FireGL 8800 also has superior memory performance overall.

The FireGL 8800 has 2.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 865G, which means that the memory performance of the FireGL 8800 is marginally better than the 865G.

The 865G has 0 Shader Processing Units and the FireGL 8800 has 2. 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 FireGL 8800. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the FireGL 8800, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the 865G.

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.
The ATI FireGL range of video cards, renamed to FirePro 3D in late 2008, is the series specifically for CAD (Computer Aided Design) and DCC (Digital Content Creation) software, usually found in workstations. The FireGL line is designed for multimedia content creation programs, such as 3DS Max, and mechanical engineering design software such as Solidworks, whereas Radeon counterparts are suited towards video games. FireGL drivers were built with maximum image quality and pixel precision, with CAD specific functionalities such as the recently introduced AutoDetection Technology to tune the parameters inside the driver to achieve maximum performance for predefined list of software. However, because the drivers are also based on the Catalyst drivers made for the Radeon line, it makes them suitable for gaming, at the expense of probable compatibility issues with the very latest games due to the age of the drivers, with FireGL cards in theory pushing more data than their Radeon gaming counterparts.
