Question About Intel Graphics Chipset

Hi everyone. I own a Intel® 4 Series Express Chipset Family which is also called the GM45, 4500MHD & 4500HD. I have heard of other names for it but I am not quite sure if they are different or not. So my question is, is the X4500, X4500M, Intel G45, Intel GM45 and the Mobile Intel® 4 Series Express Chipset Family all the same GFX Card? Thanks in advance.

I think that they are all related but different names are used depending on what it is installed in. If I remember correctly, the GM45 is for laptops. I think the G45 is for desktops. The other look like special variants of those two. The best way to figure out is to look at Intel's website.
