In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce G 103M are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 8200M G.

The GeForce G 103M was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 8200M G, and so the GeForce G 103M is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 8200M G.

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 G 103M has 512 MB video memory, but the GeForce 8200M G does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

Both the GeForce G 103M and the GeForce 8200M G have 8 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the GeForce G 103M is 5 and by the GeForce 8200M G is 3. Knowing that the shader performance of the GeForce G 103M is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The GeForce G 103M requires 14 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 8200M G.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce G 103M is an entry-class level GPU of the 100M Series released by NVIDIA, in 2009.
Since it only supports DirectX up to 10, games that use DirectX 11 are not supported and unplayable.
It uses the architecture 'G98', which is the same of the GeForce 9300M GS but comes with higher clock frequencies and it's manufactured at 55nm instead of 65nm, so the performance is a little better and even though it supports DirectX 10, even most forgiving games that use it, will only be playable at low settings. Very demanding games like Metro 2033 or The Witcher 2 are certainly unplayable, even at the lowest settings and even demanding games like Crysis 2 and Skyrim V might be unplayable at low settings. Even less demanding, modern, games, like Sims 3, require reduced settings to run smoothly.
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.
