In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel GMA 4500M are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 8200M G.

The GMA 4500M was released less than a year after the GeForce 8200M G, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

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 GMA 4500M and the GeForce 8200M G have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The memory bandwidth of the GMA 4500M and the GeForce 8200M G are the same, which means the GMA 4500M and the GeForce 8200M G have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

The GMA 4500M has 10 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 8200M G has 8. However, the actual shader performance of the GMA 4500M is 4 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 8200M G is 3. The GMA 4500M having 1 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GMA 4500M delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 8200M G.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel GMA 4500M is an embedded GPU on the Intel GM40 and GL40 chipsets.
Its performance depends on the system ram installed but overall only forgiving modern games can be played with bearable FPS.
GeForce 8400M GT is an on-board GPU part of the 8000M Series released by NVIDIA, in 2007.
Only less demanding games can be played smoothly.
