In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD i7 6500U are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 9800M GT.

The HD i7 6500U was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 9800M GT, and so the HD i7 6500U is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 9800M GT when running the latest games.

The GeForce 9800M GT has 512 MB video memory, but the HD i7 6500U does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD i7 6500U has 24 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 9800M GT has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i7 6500U is 202 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 9800M GT is 120. The HD i7 6500U having 82 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce 9800M GT performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The HD i7 6500U transistor size technology is 51 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 9800M GT. This means that the HD i7 6500U is expected to run massively cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 9800M GT.

The HD i7 6500U requires 15 Watts to run and the GeForce 9800M GT requires 65 Watts. The GeForce 9800M GT requires 50 Watts more than the HD i7 6500U to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce 9800M GT may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the HD i7 6500U.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD i7 6500U is the specific version of Intel HD Graphics 520 Mobile that is integrated in the Core i7-6500U Processor.

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 GT 630M.

System Suggestions
Intel HD i7 6500U is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
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.
