In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce G 205M are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce 9500M.

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

The GeForce G 205M was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 9500M, and so the GeForce G 205M 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 GeForce G 205M 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 GeForce G 205M has 6.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 9500M, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce G 205M is marginally better than the GeForce 9500M.

The GeForce G 205M has 16 Shader Processing Units but the GeForce 9500M does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce G 205M requires 12 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 9500M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce G 205M is an integrated GPU with no dedicated memory.
It's based on the G96 Core and therefore offers 16 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs on either DDR2 or DDR3, depending on the laptop's system RAM. Commonly, it was seen paired with DDR2 on a 64-bit bus width (due to laptop's system RAM not being dual channelled).
It's at heart a renamed GeForce 9400M GS. This GPU was discontinued due to its very limited performance - which was horrible, even compared to G 210M.
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.
