In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD FireGL V3300 are massively better than the Intel 865G.

The FireGL V3300 was released over a year more recently than the 865G, and so the FireGL V3300 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the 865G.

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 V3300 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 V3300 also has superior memory performance overall.

The FireGL V3300 has 6.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 865G, which means that the memory performance of the FireGL V3300 is marginally better than the 865G.

The FireGL V3300 has 2 Shader Processing Units but the 865G does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The 865G requires 13 Watts to run but there is no entry for the FireGL V3300. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the FireGL V3300, 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 FireGL line is designed for multimedia content creation programs, such as 3DS Max, mechanical engineering design software such as Solidworks, and civil engineering architectural software such as Chief Architect, 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
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.
