In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 765M are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 8400M GS.

The GeForce GTX 765M was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 8400M GS, and so the GeForce GTX 765M is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 8400M GS when running the latest games.

The GeForce GTX 765M has 1792 MB more video memory than the GeForce 8400M GS, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce GTX 765M also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce GTX 765M has 54.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 8400M GS, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 765M is much better than the GeForce 8400M GS.

The GeForce GTX 765M has 768 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 8400M GS has 16. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 765M is 653 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 8400M GS is 6. The GeForce GTX 765M having 647 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GTX 765M delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 8400M GS.

The GeForce GTX 765M transistor size technology is 52 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 8400M GS. This means that the GeForce GTX 765M is expected to run massively cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 8400M GS.

The GeForce GTX 765M requires 65 Watts to run and the GeForce 8400M GS requires 11 Watts. The GeForce GTX 765M requires 54 Watts more than the GeForce 8400M GS to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce GTX 765M may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce 8400M GS.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 760M is a Performance Mobile Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Kepler Architecture.

The Kepler Architecture was NVIDIA's big step to power efficiency. Each Stream Multiprocessor (SMX) now hosts 192 Shader Processing Units - against the 48 of older Fermi Architecture, and has been redesigned being now clocked at the same speed of the Central Unit. This means they are more energy efficient and will consequently lead to cooler operating temperatures. However, it also means they are weaker. It can be said that one Fermi SMX is as fast as 2 Kepler SMXs.
Additionally, and not available in all GPUs, Kepler also introduced the Boost Clock Feature. The Boost Clock is an even higher Clock Speed activated when in gaming mode and becomes the effective speed of the GPU.

It equips a GPU Codenamed GK106-N14E-GE-B-A1 which has 4 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 768 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 850MHz.

The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 1002MHz.

DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, Kepler Boost, Optimus, CUDA, OpenCL, DirectCompute, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 65W, it is suited for large laptops.

Despite being underclocked, when compared to GeForce GTX 650 Ti, GeForce GTX 765M ends up performing better in most cases as fast since the Kepler Boost 2.0 Technology allows an even higher Central Unit Speed, which most times exceeds the 950MHz.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance is on average with the desktop GeForce GTX 650 Ti.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Powerful Processor (Intel Core i7 Mobile) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 765M.
GeForce 8400M GS is an entry-class level GPU part of the 8000M Series released by NVIDIA, in 2007.
Very demanding games(e.g. Metro 2033, The Witcher 2) and even demanding games (e.g. Crysis 2, Skyrim V)are most certainly unplayable. Moderate and less demanding games, like Call of Duty: Black Ops, might be playable smoothly at the lowest settings.
