NVIDIA is one of the major video cards manufacturers, you didn't specified wich NVIDIA model...

ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 6570M is better than Intel HD Graphics 3000. It's also a newer video card than Intel model.
i think you want to compare mobile graphic cards, so i can suggest you this site


on the right you've benchmarks and the gaming list mobile gpus is a large comparison with many games and many mobile cards.

But here is a comparision for the 6570m and the hd3000, because i don't know which nvidia you mean

some have both Intel HD Graphics 3000 and NVIDIA GeForce® GT 555M in the same machine.. why could that be? is it more advantageous?
i guess that the machines that you suggest have at least core i5 sandy bridge inside as cpu, so the hd 3000 sits inside of the cpu and yes it is more advantageous.
"some have both Intel HD Graphics 3000 and NVIDIA GeForce® GT 555M"
When you have both video chips normally the Intel is used when you are on powersaving modes, meaning lowering CPU speed, screen brightness, etc. and using the other when you want the full capacities of your Laptop.
I have a Sony Vaio, it has a switch, before powering up you can select the mode and when set to power saving it'll use the Intel chip.
Also normally the intel chip will use shared memory, part of the laptop memory while the nVidia should have it's own memory.

The nvidia and ATI cards are mostly need for intensive tasks such as gaming, video editing and such. They also drain your battery much faster. For basic browsing, email, etc the Intel would do fine.

Highly recommend both Intel and one of the others (nvidia preferred IMHO).
