In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 9800M GT are significantly better than the Intel HD i5 2430M.

The HD i5 2430M was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 9800M GT, and so the HD i5 2430M is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 9800M GT when running the latest games.

The GeForce 9800M GT has 512 MB video memory, but the HD i5 2430M does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD i5 2430M has 12 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 9800M GT has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i5 2430M is 24 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 9800M GT is 120. The GeForce 9800M GT having 96 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 9800M GT delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD i5 2430M.

The HD i5 2430M requires 35 Watts to run and the GeForce 9800M GT requires 65 Watts. The GeForce 9800M GT requires 30 Watts more than the HD i5 2430M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce 9800M GT to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the HD i5 2430M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewHD i5 2430M is a specific version of the Intel HD 3000 Graphics that comes with the CPU 'Core i5-2430M 2.4GHz'. It can use up to 3 GB of shared memory and the Turbo Boost technology of the processor can over-clock the graphics card clock from 650MHz to 1200MHz.
Nevertheless it's still an integrated GPU with shared memory so its performance is very limited. Still, demanding games like Crysis 2 should still run on the lowest settings.
NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GT GPUs deliver optimized performance for immersive gaming on-the-go. Powering 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.
