In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Geforce 405M are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce Go 7200.

The Geforce 405M was released over three years more recently than the GeForce Go 7200, 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 Go 7200 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 448 MB more video memory than the GeForce Go 7200, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Geforce 405M also has superior memory performance overall.

The Geforce 405M has 10 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce Go 7200, which means that the memory performance of the Geforce 405M is marginally better than the GeForce Go 7200.

The Geforce 405M has 16 Shader Processing Units but the GeForce Go 7200 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Geforce 405M requires 14 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce Go 7200.

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.
NVIDIA GeForce Go 7200 is the weakest GPU in the GeForce 7000 Series. With only up to 32MB of dedicated memory, it's already doomed from the start.
