In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 920M 2GB are massively better than the Intel GM45 Express Chipset.

The GeForce 920M 2GB was released over three years more recently than the GM45 Express Chipset, and so the GeForce 920M 2GB is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GM45 Express Chipset when running the latest games.

The GeForce 920M 2GB has 2048 MB video memory, but the GM45 Express Chipset does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce 920M 2GB has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GM45 Express Chipset has 10. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 920M 2GB is 366 and the actual shader performance of the GM45 Express Chipset is 5. The GeForce 920M 2GB having 361 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 920M 2GB delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GM45 Express Chipset.

The GeForce 920M 2GB requires 25 Watts to run and the GM45 Express Chipset requires 12 Watts. The GeForce 920M 2GB requires 13 Watts more than the GM45 Express Chipset to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce 920M 2GB to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GM45 Express Chipset.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce 920M 2GB is an Entry-Level Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Kepler Architecture.

This Graphics Card Equips the Kepler GK208 GPU which is essentially a power optimized version of the GK107 GPU. Whereas it still has a count of 2 Stream Multiprocessors, the bus-width has been cut in half to allow for even a smaller power consumption and consequently a cooler operating temperature.
Additionally, the GK208 GPU allows the Central Unit to reach a significant higher frequency, thanks to the Kepler Boost 2.0 Technology. The better the laptop's cooling system, the higher the frequency.

It equips a GPU Codenamed GK208-N16V-GM which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit is Initially clocked at 575MHz and goes up to 954MHz, in Turbo Mode.

The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 25W, it is suited for small laptops.

GeForce 920M 2GB is essentially a slightly faster GeForce GT 735M and offers more or less comparable performance.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Modest Processor and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 920M 2GB.
Intel GM45 Express Chipset comes embedded on the Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Extreme, Celeron M CPUS and features an Integrated GPU called GMA X4500HD.
The performance depends on which type of system ram is installed and GM45 supports slow DDR2 or standard DDR3. We will use standard DDR3 for ranking purposes and the memory clock of 533MHz (max supported).
Due to its characteristics (e.g. Shared Memory) the performance is very limited and only very old games or today's non-demanding games can be played with fluent Frame Rates.
