Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 3600 vs Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 3650

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 3600

► remove

The Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3600 or GMA 3600 is an integrated processor graphics card (e.g. in the Atom N2600) without dedicated memory. It is based on a PowerVR SGX 545 design similar to the GMA 500 (SGX 535). In theory the GPU should support DirectX 10.1 but at launch only DirectX 9 support was available.

The gaming performance is very bad and many games are not even running at all.

Compared to the HD 3650, the 3600 is clocked slower (400 vs 640MHz).

The GMA 3600 also includes an integrated video decoder to handle some types of HD videos and supports an HDMI output.

The Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3650 or GMA 3650 is an integrated processor graphics card (e.g. in the Atom N2800) without dedicated memory. It is based on a PowerVR SGX 545 design similar to the GMA 500 (SGX 535). It is still not very fast and is therefore not really suited for gaming. Our tests also show that many games wont even start with the GPU and are therefore not playable. Furthermore, the announced DX 10.1 support is not given at launch, only DirectX 9.

The GMA 3650 also features a HD video decoder and is able to output to HDMI ports.
