In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 120M are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce 320M.

The GeForce 320M was released over a year more recently than the GeForce GT 120M, 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 GT 120M.

The GeForce GT 120M has 1024 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 GT 120M has 32. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 320M is 45 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 120M is 40. The GeForce 320M having 5 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 320M delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GT 120M.

The GeForce 320M transistor size technology is 15 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GT 120M. This means that the GeForce 320M is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GT 120M. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GeForce 320M should consume less power than the GeForce GT 120M.

The GeForce 320M requires 23 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 120M requires 23 Watts. The two GPUs require the same amount of wattage to run. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

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.
GeForce GT 120M is a middle-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 'G96b' same as GT 130M but also same as GeForce 9600M GT. It can be addressed as a slow GeForce GT 130M, due to the lower clock frequencies or a renamed GeForce 9600M GT, manufactured at 55nm, instead of 65nm.
Very demanding games like Metro 2033 or The Witcher 2 are most probably unplayable, even at the lowest settings, while demanding games like Crysis 2 and Skyrim V can be played at low settings.
