In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 320M are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 9500M GS.

The GeForce 320M was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 9500M GS, and so the GeForce 320M is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 9500M GS.

The GeForce 9500M GS has 512 MB video memory, but the GeForce 320M does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce 320M has 48 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 9500M GS has 32. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 320M is 45 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 9500M GS is 38. The GeForce 320M having 7 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 320M delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 9500M GS.

The GeForce 320M transistor size technology is 40 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 9500M GS. This means that the GeForce 320M is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 9500M GS. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GeForce 320M should consume less power than the GeForce 9500M GS.

The GeForce 320M requires 23 Watts to run and the GeForce 9500M GS requires 20 Watts. The GeForce 320M requires 3 Watts more than the GeForce 9500M GS 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 GeForce 9500M GS.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
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.
The NVIDIA GeForce 9500M GS GPUs, deliver the ultimate balance between mobility and performance for astounding PureVideo HD technology playback capabilities combined with 3D features to enable visually-intense applications and games.
