In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 9800M GT are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 305M.

The GeForce 305M was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 9800M GT, and so the GeForce 305M is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 9800M GT.

The GeForce 305M and the GeForce 9800M GT have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce 9800M GT has 40 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 305M, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 9800M GT is noticeably better than the GeForce 305M.

The GeForce 305M has 16 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 9800M GT has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 305M is 18 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 9800M GT is 120. The GeForce 9800M GT having 102 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 9800M GT delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 305M.

The GeForce 305M transistor size technology is 25 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 9800M GT. This means that the GeForce 305M is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 9800M GT.

The GeForce 305M requires 14 Watts to run and the GeForce 9800M GT requires 65 Watts. The GeForce 9800M GT requires 51 Watts more than the GeForce 305M to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce 9800M GT may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce 305M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce 305M is an Entry-Level Mobile Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Tesla Architecture.

Architecture
Tesla was NVIDIA's First Unified Shader Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GT218-N11M-LP1 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 16 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 525MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 512MB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 700MHz.

Features
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.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat below the desktop GeForce 210.
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.
