In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel 865G are significantly better than the Nvidia Quadro NVS 280.

The Quadro NVS 280 was released less than a year after the 865G, 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 280 has 48 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 Quadro NVS 280 also has superior memory performance overall.

The memory bandwidth of the Quadro NVS 280 and the 865G are the same, which means the Quadro NVS 280 and the 865G have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

The Quadro NVS 280 has 1 Shader Processing Units and the 865G has 0. 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 Quadro NVS 280.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewDelivering a reliable hardware and software platform, the NVIDIA® NVS™ professional business graphics solutions provide a stable business environment. With robust IT management tools for seamless enterprise deployment, NVS graphics boards are the unrivaled solution across financial institution, emergency call center, digital signage systems and other mission-critical environments. Intel 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.
