In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 630M v2 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 9800M GT.

The GT 630M was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 9800M GT, and so the GT 630M is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 9800M GT when running the latest games.

The GT 630M has 1536 MB more video memory than the GeForce 9800M GT, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GT 630M also has superior memory performance overall.

The GT 630M has 6.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 9800M GT, which means that the memory performance of the GT 630M is marginally better than the GeForce 9800M GT.

Both the GeForce GT 630M v2 and the GeForce 9800M GT have 96 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the GT 630M is 154 and by the GeForce 9800M GT is 120. Knowing that the shader performance of the GT 630M is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The GT 630M transistor size technology is 25 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 9800M GT. This means that the GT 630M is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 9800M GT.

The GeForce GT 630M v2 requires 33 Watts to run and the GeForce 9800M GT requires 65 Watts. The GeForce 9800M GT requires 32 Watts more than the GT 630M to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce 9800M GT may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GT 630M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 630M v2 is a fast-middle-class Mobile Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Fermi Architecture.

Architecture
The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GF108 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 96 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 800MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Optimus, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 33W, it is suited for 15" or larger laptops.

Performance
GeForce GT 630M v2 is essentially a fast GeForce GT 555M v2.
Gaming benchmarks put its performance identical to a desktop GeForce GT 440.

System Suggestions
We recommend a decent processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 630M v2.
NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GT GPUs deliver optimized performance for immersive gaming on-the-go. Powering the next generation of visual computing, blazing-fast mobile gaming, and the ultimate HD experience with PureVideo HD technology. This product is also enabled for CUDA applications and is NVIDIA PhysX-ready.
