In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD i7 2670QM 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 HD i7 2670QM was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 9500M, and so the HD i7 2670QM is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 9500M when running the latest games.

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 i7 2670QM and the GeForce 9500M have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The HD i7 2670QM has 10.7 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 9500M, which means that the memory performance of the HD i7 2670QM is slightly better than the GeForce 9500M.

Both the HD i7 2670QM and the GeForce 9500M have 0 Shader Processing Units. The two GPUs are based on different architectures, but deliver an equivalent shader performance. To compare, we must continue to look at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, we sadly do not have enough data in this area to complete the comparison.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewHD i7 2670QM is a specific version of the Intel HD 3000 Graphics that comes with the CPU 'Intel Core i7-2670QM 4-Core 2.2GHz'. It uses the CPU's Level 3 Cache (up to 6 MB, in this case) + part of the RAM installed on the system up to a maximum of approximately 1.7GB for Vista/7 and 1 GB for XP. The Memory controller supports DDR3-1066 and DDR3-1333 and the Turbo Boost technology of the processor can over-clock the graphics card clock from 650MHz to 1100MHz. <r> 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.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.
