In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 435M v2 are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce 9800M GT.

The GT 435M was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 9800M GT, and so the GT 435M is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 9800M GT.

The GT 435M has 512 MB more video memory than the GeForce 9800M GT, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GeForce 9800M GT has superior memory performance.

The GeForce 9800M GT has 25.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 435M, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 9800M GT is slightly better than the GT 435M.

Both the GeForce GT 435M 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 GeForce 9800M GT is 120 and by the GT 435M is 120. Knowing that the shader performance of the GeForce 9800M GT is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The GT 435M transistor size technology is 25 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 9800M GT. This means that the GT 435M is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 9800M GT. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GT 435M should consume less power than the GeForce 9800M GT.

The GeForce GT 435M v2 requires 35 Watts to run and the GeForce 9800M GT requires 65 Watts. The GeForce 9800M GT requires 30 Watts more than the GT 435M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce 9800M GT to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GT 435M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 435M v2 is a middle-class Mobile Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Fermi 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.

It equips a GPU Codenamed GF106-N11E-GE-A1 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 96 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 590MHz.

The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 800MHz.

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 35W, it is suited for 15" or larger laptops.

GeForce GT 435M v2 is essentially a fast GeForce GT 425M.
Gaming benchmarks put its performance only slightly below a desktop GeForce GT 430.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i3 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 435M 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.
