In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD i5 U470 are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 8200M G.

The HD i5 U470 was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 8200M G, and so the HD i5 U470 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 8200M G.

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 HD i5 U470 and the GeForce 8200M G have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The HD i5 U470 has 12.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 8200M G, which means that the memory performance of the HD i5 U470 is slightly better than the GeForce 8200M G.

The HD i5 U470 has 12 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 8200M G has 8. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i5 U470 is 5 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 8200M G is 3. The HD i5 U470 having 2 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD i5 U470 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 8200M G.

The HD i5 U470 requires 18 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 8200M G.
