In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 9500 GT are marginally better than the Intel HD Graphics 510 Desktop.

The GeForce 9500 GT has a 200 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics 510. This results in the GeForce 9500 GT providing 6 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GeForce 9500 GT has a 200 MHz higher core clock speed and 4 more Render Output Units than the Graphics 510. This results in the GeForce 9500 GT providing 3 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Graphics 510 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 9500 GT, and so the Graphics 510 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 9500 GT when running the latest games.

The GeForce 9500 GT has 512 MB video memory, but the Graphics 510 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics 510 Desktop has 12 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 9500 GT has 32. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics 510 is 101 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 9500 GT is 18. The Graphics 510 having 83 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Graphics 510 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 9500 GT.

The Graphics 510 transistor size technology is 41 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 9500 GT. This means that the Graphics 510 is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 9500 GT. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Graphics 510 should consume less power than the GeForce 9500 GT.

The HD Graphics 510 Desktop requires 47 Watts to run and the GeForce 9500 GT requires 50 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Graphics 510 and a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the GeForce 9500 GT. The GeForce 9500 GT requires 3 Watts more than the Graphics 510 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce 9500 GT to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Graphics 510.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD Graphics 510 Desktop are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's Skylake Processors.

The Skylake Core includes support for DirectX 12.1, OpenCL 2.0 and OpenGL 4.4. Additionally, it also supports DDR4 Memory.

It equips a GPU Codenamed GT1 which offers 12 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 350MHz and goes up to 1050MHz, in Turbo Mode.

The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies from laptop to laptop. Typically, the GPU reserves 1.7GB. Depending on whether or not the system's RAM is Dual-Channeled, it can access either a 64-bit or 128-bit memory interface. The operating memory clock also depends on the at which speed the System's RAM is running and is limited by the highest operating speed that the Processor supports. In this case, it is 1067MHz.
It is then obvious the Memory Bandwidth depends on a lot of factors and thus this Graphics Card performance may vary heavily from system to system.

Gaming benchmarks put its performance almost on level with the older Intel HD Graphics 4400.

System Suggestions
Intel HD Graphics 510 Desktop is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend a Decent Processor and 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
GeForce 9500 GT is a Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the Tesla Architecture.

Tesla was NVIDIA's First Unified Shader Architecture.

It equips a GPU Codenamed G96C which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 32 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 550MHz.

The GPU accesses a 512MB frame buffer of GDDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 800MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 50W, it requires at least a 350W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for Power meaning no extra connectors are required.

Gaming benchmarks put its performance on average with GeForce 8600 GTS, meaning it is much faster than Radeon HD 3650.
