In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 445M v2 are massively better than the Intel HD i5 U430.

The GT 445M was released less than a year after the HD i5 U430, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GT 445M has 1024 MB video memory, but the HD i5 U430 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GT 445M has 144 Shader Processing Units but the HD i5 U430 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce GT 445M v2 requires 35 Watts to run and the HD i5 U430 requires 18 Watts. The GT 445M requires 17 Watts more than the HD i5 U430 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GT 445M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the HD i5 U430.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 445M v2 is a Fast-Middle-Class Mobile Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Fermi Architecture.

Architecture
The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GF106-N11E-GE-A1 which has 3 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 144 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 570MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 625MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Optimus, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 35W, it is suited for 15" or larger laptops.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance almost on level with the desktop GeForce GT 450 v4.

System Suggestions
We recommend a decent processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 445M v2.
Intel HD i5 U430 is the graphics card which is built into the Intel core i5 U430 mobile processor. this card can handle most of the latest games like, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Battlefield 3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim in the lowest settings on a pretty good frame rate. Overall a great card. A perfect fit for a non-hardcore gamer.
