In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 9500M are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce 9400M.

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

The GeForce 9400M was released less than a year after the GeForce 9500M, 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 GeForce 9400M has 256 MB video memory, but the GeForce 9500M does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

Both the GeForce 9500M and the GeForce 9400M have 0 Shader Processing Units. Having the same number of SPUs and using the same architecture means that the performance they offer can be compared by looking at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, we sadly do not have enough data in this area to complete the comparison.

The GeForce 9400M requires 12 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 9500M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewAlso 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.
