In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel 945GM Express Family are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce 4 MX 440.

The 945GM Express Family was released over three years more recently than the 4 MX, and so the 945GM Express Family is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the 4 MX 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 945GM Express Family and the GeForce 4 MX 440 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The 4 MX has 3.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 945GM Express Family, which means that the memory performance of the 4 MX is marginally better than the 945GM Express Family.

The 4 MX has 2 Shader Processing Units but the 945GM Express Family does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe 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.
GeForce4 MX 440 is part of the GeForce4 GPUS released by NVIDIA in 2002. Only compatible with DirectX 7 or less and with a max memory of 128 MB, it can't play today's games. Still, games before 2003 should be fully playable at max settings....
