In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia NVS 5200M are very slightly better than the Intel HD i7 3840QM.

The NVS 5200M was released less than a year after the HD i7 3840QM, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The NVS 5200M has 1024 MB video memory, but the HD i7 3840QM does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD i7 3840QM has 16 Shader Processing Units and the NVS 5200M has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i7 3840QM is 83 and the actual shader performance of the NVS 5200M is 120. The NVS 5200M having 37 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the NVS 5200M delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD i7 3840QM.

The HD i7 3840QM transistor size technology is 18 nm (nanometers) smaller than the NVS 5200M. This means that the HD i7 3840QM is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the NVS 5200M. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the HD i7 3840QM should consume less power than the NVS 5200M.

The HD i7 3840QM requires 45 Watts to run but there is no entry for the NVS 5200M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewN/ANVS 5200M is an entry to middle-class-level business card with support for special drivers that are certified for professional applications like Microsoft Office Suite, Hummingbird Exceed, Lotus Notes, etc.
Based on the Fermi GF108 architecture (same used on mid range GT 525M, GT 540M, GT 630M, etc) but with no driver support for games. Due to its identical specifications but bus width cut in half and no driver support for games, its performance should be a little lower than GeForce GT 525M.
