In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Geforce 405M are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 8200M G.

The Geforce 405M was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 8200M G, and so the Geforce 405M is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 8200M G 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 Geforce 405M has 512 MB video memory, but the GeForce 8200M G does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Geforce 405M has 16 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 8200M G has 8. However, the actual shader performance of the Geforce 405M is 22 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 8200M G is 3. The Geforce 405M having 19 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Geforce 405M delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 8200M G.

The Geforce 405M requires 14 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 8200M G.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce 405M is the latest addition to the 400M Series released by NVIDIA in 2010-2012.
It's a renamed GeForce 315M, based on the GT218 architecture.
It only supports up to 512MB DDR3/GDDR3 memory type and DirectX 10.1. GeForce 405M is one of the weakest integrated GPUs with dedicated memory currently in the market, it has only 16 Pipelines and so, along with other factors, the performance is very limited.
Therefore, the most demanding games are probably unplayable even at the lowest settings while demanding games should run fluently at low settings. Less demanding games will run fluently from medium to high settings, depending on the amount of video memory required, since GeForce 405M only has up to 512MB.
GeForce 8400M GT is an on-board GPU part of the 8000M Series released by NVIDIA, in 2007.
Only less demanding games can be played smoothly.
