In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 320M are marginally better than the Nvidia NVS 4200M.

The NVS 4200M was released less than a year after the GeForce 320M, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The NVS 4200M 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.

Both the NVS 4200M and the GeForce 320M have 48 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the NVS 4200M is 78 and by the GeForce 320M is 45. Knowing that the shader performance of the NVS 4200M is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The GeForce 320M requires 23 Watts to run but there is no entry for the NVS 4200M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewNVS 4100M is an entry-level business card with support for special drivers that are certified for professional applications like Microsoft Office Suite, Hummingbird Exceed, Lotus Notes, etc. It's part of the NVS Mobile Series released by NVIDIA, in 2010/2011.
Though business cards have no driver support for games, some of them deliver astonishing performance (e.g. Quadro 6000, Tesla C2075). NVS 4100M does support DirectX 10.1 but the limited Memory Bus and all the rest put together result in poor gaming performance. Still, it should be enough to handle demanding games like, Crysis 2, on the lowest settings possible but games like Metro 2033 are probably unplayable at the lowest settings.
Overview
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.
