X-bit Labs compares four chipsets with integrated graphics: the Intel 945G, Intel G965, NVIDIA GeForce 6100 and NVIDIA GeForce 6150.
Integrated chipsets are very attractive these days not only because they allow saving some money during PC assembly. Platforms using integrated graphics are much more economical, which has become a very important criterion lately, almost as important as the overall system performance. Especially since the computer power consumption is not only directly connected with the ever growing power costs, but is also proportional to the amount of heat that needs to be taken off the system. Since the power consumption of most graphics cards keeps increasing, integrated systems may become a really great choice for those tasks that do not require high-end 3D performance. In our today’s article we will try to answer the question: what integrated chipsets available today offer the best set of consumer features and capabilities..
