In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce G 210M are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 9500M.

The GeForce 9500M has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The GeForce G 210M was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 9500M, and so the GeForce G 210M is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 9500M.

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 210M has 512 MB video memory, but the GeForce 9500M does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce G 210M has 16 Shader Processing Units but the GeForce 9500M does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce G 210M requires 14 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 9500M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce G 210M is an entry-class level GPU of the 200M Series released by NVIDIA in 2009/2010. The biggest hindrance it has is the fact that it only supports DirectX up to 10.1 so DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
It's based on the architecture 'GT218', same used on the entry GPUS of the desktop 200 Series. The performance is actually better than the desktop GeForce GT 210, thanks to the higher clock frequencies.
Demanding games like Crysis are only playable at the lowest settings while very demanding games are most likely, unplayable.
Also known as GeForce 9500M GE
It had previously been thought that NVIDIA had decided to drop the G and NV nomenclature for a D (for Desktop) nomenclature on their processors. Following the D is the generation number and the target market indicator. NVIDIA's official designations for target markets include Mainstream, Performance, and Enthusiast. For example, the D9E indicates a 9th generation Desktop GeForce video card for the Enthusiast market[1]. However, NVIDIA has actually forked their codenames into those of graphics processors, and those of graphics cards. The GPU cores have kept the prefix 'G' and future versions will include the prefix 'GT'; whereas the actual cards are now codenamed as D, generation number and target market.
