In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 920M 2GB are noticeably better than the Intel HD Graphics 520 Mobile.

The GeForce 920M 2GB has a 275 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics 520. This results in the GeForce 920M 2GB providing 13.6 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 920M 2GB has a 275 MHz higher core clock speed than the Graphics 520 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GeForce 920M 2GB providing 2.2 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 520 was released less than a year after the GeForce 920M 2GB, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce 920M 2GB has 2048 MB video memory, but the Graphics 520 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics 520 Mobile has 24 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 920M 2GB has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics 520 is 202 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 920M 2GB is 366. The GeForce 920M 2GB having 164 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Graphics 520 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Graphics 520 transistor size technology is 14 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 920M 2GB. This means that the Graphics 520 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 920M 2GB.

The HD Graphics 520 Mobile requires 15 Watts to run and the GeForce 920M 2GB requires 25 Watts. The GeForce 920M 2GB requires 10 Watts more than the Graphics 520 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 Graphics 520.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD Graphics 520 Mobile are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's Skylake ULV Mobile Processors.

Architecture
The Skylake Architecture succeeds the Broadwell Architecture and aims for increased CPU and Graphics Performance, within the same Power Requirements. It includes support for DirectX 12.1, OpenCL 2.0 and OpenGL 4.4, as well as DDR4 Memory Support.
The GPU Codenamed GT2-U offers 24 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs.

GPU
The Central Unit Initially Runs at 300MHz and goes up to 1050MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory: Speed
The Operating Memory Clock depends at which speed the System's RAM is running and which Memory Type is installed and is ultimately limited by the highest operating speed that the Processor supports. In this case, it is 933MHz for DDR3 and 1067MHz for DDR4.
Depending on whether or not the System's RAM is Dual-Channeled, it can access either a 64-bit or 128-bit Memory Interface.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies according to the System. The GPU may reserve up to 1.7GB.

Performance
Because Performance depends heavily on the Memory Bandwidth, it may vary heavily from System to System.
Best Case Scenario, expect Performance Identical to a dedicated GeForce 630M.

System Suggestions
Intel HD Graphics 520 Mobile is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
GeForce 920M 2GB is an Entry-Level Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Kepler Architecture.

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.

GPU
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.

Memory
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.

Performance
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.
