In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Mobility Radeon HD 5430 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 9500M.

The GeForce 9500M has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

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

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 Radeon HD has 1024 MB video memory, but the GeForce 9500M does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon HD has 80 Shader Processing Units but the GeForce 9500M does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Mobility Radeon HD 5430 requires 7 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 9500M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewMobility Radeon HD 5430 is a entry-level GPU based on the 40nm, Terascale 2 architecture.
It's based on the Parks LP Core and offers 80 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs, on 64-bit memory interface of standard GDDR3. The central unit runs at 500MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 800MHz. It consumes no more than 7 Watt.
Its performance is extremely limited and not recommended for any of today's modern demanding games. Crysis 3 and other similar demanding games should be unplayable, even at the lowest settings.
Also known as GeForce 9500M GE
It had previously been thought that NVIDIA had decided to drop the G and NV nomenclature for a D (for Desktop) nomenclature on their processors. Following the D is the generation number and the target market indicator. NVIDIA's official designations for target markets include Mainstream, Performance, and Enthusiast. For example, the D9E indicates a 9th generation Desktop GeForce video card for the Enthusiast market[1]. However, NVIDIA has actually forked their codenames into those of graphics processors, and those of graphics cards. The GPU cores have kept the prefix 'G' and future versions will include the prefix 'GT'; whereas the actual cards are now codenamed as D, generation number and target market.
