In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce Go 7400 are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce 8200M G.

The GeForce 8200M G was released over a year more recently than the GeForce Go 7400, 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 Go 7400.

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 Go 7400 has 128 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 Go 7400 has 40 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 8200M G has 8. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce Go 7400 is 18 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 8200M G is 3. The GeForce Go 7400 having 15 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce Go 7400 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 8200M G.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce Go 7400 is already a middle-class level GPU. It can use up to 128MB of dedicated video memory, plus it features DDR3 memory type. Compared to the previous GeForce Go, it's undoubtedly much better but even so, it can only handle games like F.E.A.R (from 2005) on 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.
