Gaming Performance Comparison
In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics 3000 Desktop are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 6600 GT 256MB.
The Graphics 3000 was released less than a year after the 6600 GT, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.
The 6600 GT has 256 MB video memory, but the Graphics 3000 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.
The GeForce 6600 GT 256MB has 11 Shader Processing Units and the HD Graphics 3000 Desktop has 48. However, the actual shader performance of the 6600 GT is 6 and the actual shader performance of the Graphics 3000 is 126. The Graphics 3000 having 120 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Graphics 3000 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the 6600 GT.
