Gaming Performance Comparison
In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro NVS 135M are marginally better than the Intel 965 Express Family.
Both the Quadro NVS 135M and the 965 Express Family were released at the same time, so are likely to be quite similar.
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 965 Express Family has 128 MB more video memory than the Quadro NVS 135M, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the Quadro NVS 135M has superior memory performance.
The Quadro NVS 135M has 9.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 965 Express Family, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro NVS 135M is marginally better than the 965 Express Family.
Both the Quadro NVS 135M and the 965 Express Family 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 Quadro NVS 135M requires 10 Watts to run but there is no entry for the 965 Express Family.

|Mini Review||Quadro NVS 135M is a business card with support for special drivers that are certified for professional applications like Microsoft Office Suite, Hummingbird Exceed, Lotus Notes, etc. It's part of the Quadro NVS Mobile Series released by NVIDIA, in 2006/2007/2010. |
Though business cards have no driver support for games, some of them deliver astonishing performance (e.g. Quadro 6000, Tesla C2075). Quadro NVS 135M, however, isn't one of them.
The support for DirectX 10 becomes ridiculous when it comes to gaming because eventhough Quadro NVS 135M is clearly better than the previous models it's still incapable of playing today's games like Crysis 2 and Metro 2033, even at the lowest settings and even older games like Resident Evil 5 that use DirectX 10 are most probably unplayable too.
|The Intel Graphics Media Accelerator, or GMA, is Intel's current line of integrated graphics processors built into various motherboard chipsets.|
These integrated graphics products allow a computer to be built without a separate graphics card, which can reduce cost, power consumption and noise. They are commonly found on low-priced notebook and desktop computers as well as business computers, which do not need high levels of graphics capability. 90% of all PCs sold have integrated graphics. They rely on the computer's main memory for storage, which imposes a performance penalty, as both the CPU and GPU have to access memory over the same bus.
