In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD i7 3840QM are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 9500M G.

The HD i7 3840QM was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 9500M G, and so the HD i7 3840QM is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 9500M G when running the latest games.

The GeForce 9500M G 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.

Both the HD i7 3840QM and the GeForce 9500M G have 16 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the HD i7 3840QM is 83 and by the GeForce 9500M G is 8. Knowing that the shader performance of the HD i7 3840QM is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The HD i7 3840QM requires 45 Watts to run and the GeForce 9500M G requires 20 Watts. The HD i7 3840QM requires 25 Watts more than the GeForce 9500M G to run. The difference is not significant enough for the HD i7 3840QM to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce 9500M G.
