In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD M-5Y51 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 320M.

The GeForce 320M has a 150 MHz higher core clock speed and 12 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD M-5Y51. This results in the GeForce 320M 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 320M has a 150 MHz higher core clock speed and 7 more Render Output Units than the HD M-5Y51. This results in the GeForce 320M providing 3.3 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 HD M-5Y51 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 320M, and so the HD M-5Y51 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 320M when running the latest games.

The HD M-5Y51 and the GeForce 320M have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The HD M-5Y51 has 4.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 320M, which means that the memory performance of the HD M-5Y51 is marginally better than the GeForce 320M.

The HD M-5Y51 has 24 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 320M has 48. However, the actual shader performance of the HD M-5Y51 is 173 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 320M is 45. The HD M-5Y51 having 128 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD M-5Y51 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 320M.

The HD M-5Y51 transistor size technology is 26 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 320M. This means that the HD M-5Y51 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 320M.

The HD M-5Y51 requires 5 Watts to run and the GeForce 320M requires 23 Watts. The GeForce 320M requires 18 Watts more than the HD M-5Y51 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce 320M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the HD M-5Y51.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD M-5Y51 is the specific version of Intel HD Graphics 5300 Mobile that is integrated in the Core M-5Y51 Processor.

The Broadwell Core includes support for DirectX 11.2, OpenCL 2.0 and OpenGL 4.3. Additionally, it also offers better Decoding Performance, when compared to its Predecessors.
The GPU Codenamed GT2 offers 24 Shader Processing Units, 4 TMUs and 1 ROP.

The Central Unit Initially Runs at 300MHz and goes up to 900MHz, in Turbo Mode.

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 800MHz.
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 2GB.

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 420M.

System Suggestions
Intel HD M-5Y51 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
GeForce 320M is an Integrated Mobile Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Tesla Architecture.

Tesla was NVIDIA's First Unified Shader Architecture.

It equips a GPU Codenamed Tesla MCP89 which has 4 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 48 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 450MHz.

The GPU also Shares the System's RAM which varies from laptop to laptop. Typically, the GPU reserves 256MB. 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. 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.

DirectX 10.1 Support (10.0 Hardware Default) and support for NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology, Dual-stream Hardware Acceleration, PhysX, CUDA, HybridPower and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 14W, it may be used on very small notebooks.

Gaming benchmarks put its performance considerably above the desktop GeForce 210.
