In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 9700M GT are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce 320M.

The GeForce 320M was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 9700M GT, 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 9700M GT.

The GeForce 9700M GT 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 9700M GT has 32. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 320M is 45 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 9700M GT is 20. The GeForce 320M having 25 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 9700M GT.

The GeForce 320M requires 23 Watts to run and the GeForce 9700M GT requires 45 Watts. The GeForce 9700M GT requires 22 Watts more than the GeForce 320M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce 9700M GT to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce 320M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce 320M is an Integrated 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 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.

Memory
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.

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 considerably above the desktop GeForce 210.
Extreme gaming reaches new levels with the NVIDIA GeForce 9700M GT GPUs, delivering optimized performance for immersive gaming on-the-go. With increased performance over previous enthusiast class GPUs, the GeForce 9700M GT GPUs powers 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.
