In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 750M 2GB GDDR5 are massively better than the Intel HD i5 4200H.

The GT 750M has a 541 MHz higher core clock speed and 28 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD i5 4200H. This results in the GT 750M providing 28.5 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GT 750M has a 541 MHz higher core clock speed and 14 more Render Output Units than the HD i5 4200H. This results in the GT 750M providing 14.3 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The HD i5 4200H was released less than a year after the GT 750M, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GT 750M has 2048 MB video memory, but the HD i5 4200H does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD i5 4200H has 20 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 750M 2GB GDDR5 has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i5 4200H is 92 and the actual shader performance of the GT 750M is 406. The GT 750M having 314 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GT 750M delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD i5 4200H.

The HD i5 4200H transistor size technology is 6 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 750M. This means that the HD i5 4200H is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 750M.

The HD i5 4200H requires 47 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 750M 2GB GDDR5 requires 50 Watts. The GT 750M requires 3 Watts more than the HD i5 4200H to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GT 750M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the HD i5 4200H.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD i5 4200H is the Specific Version of Intel HD Graphics 4600 Mobile that is integrated in the Core i5-4200H Processor.

It equips a GPU Codenamed GT2 which offers 20 Shader Processing Units, 4 TMUs and 2 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 400MHz and goes up to 1150MHz, in Turbo Mode.

The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies from laptop to laptop. Typically, the GPU reserves 1GB. Depending on whether or not the system's RAM is Dual-Channeled, it can access either a 64-bit or 128-bit memory interface. The operating memory clock also depends on the at which speed the System's RAM is running and is limited by the highest operating speed that the Processor supports. In this case, it is 800MHz.
It is then obvious the Memory Bandwidth depends on a lot of factors and thus this Graphics Card performance may vary heavily from system to system.

Gaming benchmarks put its performance on average with a dedicated GeForce GT 540M.

System Suggestions
We recommend 4GB of RAM for a System with Intel HD i5 4200H.
GeForce GT 750M v4 is a Fast-Middle-Class 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 GK107-N14P-GT which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is initially clocked at 941MHz and goes up to 1058MHz, in Turbo Mode.

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 1000MHz.

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 50W, it is suited for average sized laptops.

GeForce GT 750M v2 is essentially a fast GeForce GTX 660M.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance is only slightly below the desktop GeForce GTX 650.

System Suggestions
We recommend a decent processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 750M v4.
