"GeForce 9300 won our hearts… The G45 comparison doesn't even make sense to mention here; NVIDIA is beyond significantly faster in most cases. We finally have a reasonable integrated graphics solution for Intel processors."
"NVIDIA's GeForce 9300 is the perfect HTPC chipset"
"With GeForce 9300 available, budget buyers seem to have a better mainstream platform to complement Intel’s Core 2 processors"
"The graphics performance is without a doubt a level of magnitude improvement over the G45 chipset and added benefits like CUDA, Hybrid SLI and the coming onslaught of multimedia applications accelerated by GPUs make motherboards based on the NVIDIA GeForce 9400/9300 chipsets an easy choice."
"HTPC aficionados no longer have to make any compromises."
"With its massive power and features, GeForce 9-series motherboard GPU makes a strong impact on Intel’s G-series IGP for Intel platforms."
"allows you to experience the latest DX10 games which are unable to run on a G45-based platform (slower than 10 fps)…best solution for you to build a real HTPC."
"It provides the highest level of multi-media center performance among all integrated graphics platforms."
"the integrated GPU, if not utilized for graphics, can be used for CUDA, Transcoding, PhysX and whatever new applications we'll see in the future"
"Comfortably better than Intel G45 (X4500HD) for 3D work…Useful as a base for an Intel-oriented HTPC setup…CUDA and PhysX make a little more sense now"
"for HTPC playback it's the best Intel solution currently available"
"It should make for a very compelling HTPC purchase"
"If you intend to use your integrated PC for relatively serious work you will probably find that 9300M/9400M has an advantage over G45"
"The GeForce 9300/9400 are undoubtedly the best IGP of the moment. They can even put the latest Radeon HD 4000 in the shade…It's according to us the best integrated graphics chipset to build a multimedia machine."
"Intel’s G45 has beaten itself impressively. Most of the games don’t start at all and the performance with games which run on the G45 is cleary under the level of a GeForce 9300…Due to the CUDA and PhysX support the GeForce 9300 gets an advantage."
"The GeForce 9 mGPU is the first graphics chip, which is comparable to low budget dedicated graphics cards."
