In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 8400M GT are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 8200M G.

The GeForce 8200M G was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 8400M GT, and so the GeForce 8200M G is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 8400M GT.

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 8400M GT has 512 MB video memory, but the GeForce 8200M G does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce 8400M GT has 16 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 8200M G has 8. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 8400M GT is 7 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 8200M G is 3. The GeForce 8400M GT having 4 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 8400M GT delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 8200M G.

The GeForce 8400M GT requires 14 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 8200M G.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce 8400M GT is an entry-class level GPU part of the 8000M Series released by NVIDIA, in 2007.
Very demanding games(e.g. Metro 2033, The Witcher 2) and even demanding games (e.g. Crysis 2, Skyrim V)are most certainly unplayable. Moderate and less demanding games, like Call of Duty: Black Ops, might be playable smoothly at the lowest settings.
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.
