In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 9500M are very slightly better than the Intel HD Graphics Mobile.

The GeForce 9500M has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The HD Graphics Mobile was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 9500M, and so the HD Graphics Mobile is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 9500M.

Both GPUs exhibit very poor performance, so rather than upgrading from one to the other you should consider looking at more powerful GPUs. Neither of these will be able to run the latest games in any playable way.

The HD Graphics Mobile and the GeForce 9500M have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The HD Graphics Mobile has 8.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 9500M, which means that the memory performance of the HD Graphics Mobile is marginally better than the GeForce 9500M.

The HD Graphics Mobile has 12 Shader Processing Units but the GeForce 9500M does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics Mobile requires 35 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 9500M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel HD Graphics Mobile is an integrated GPU in the Arrandale CPUs released by Intel.
It can have up to ~1.7GB of system RAM. The CPU's highest memory supported is 1066MHz. Therefore, the max memory clock is 533MHz.
The performance depends a lot from CPU to CPU, as it can come clocked at different speeds and reach different values using Turbo Boost.
Identify your CPU and see if the specific version of this Intel that comes with your CPU is added. Example: if you have the CPU Core i7-620M, you have the GPU HD i7 M620.
Also known as GeForce 9500M GE
It had previously been thought that NVIDIA had decided to drop the G and NV nomenclature for a D (for Desktop) nomenclature on their processors. Following the D is the generation number and the target market indicator. NVIDIA's official designations for target markets include Mainstream, Performance, and Enthusiast. For example, the D9E indicates a 9th generation Desktop GeForce video card for the Enthusiast market[1]. However, NVIDIA has actually forked their codenames into those of graphics processors, and those of graphics cards. The GPU cores have kept the prefix 'G' and future versions will include the prefix 'GT'; whereas the actual cards are now codenamed as D, generation number and target market.
