In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 8800M GTX are significantly better than the Intel HD Graphics Mobile (Broadwell).

The Graphics Mobile was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 8800M GTX, and so the Graphics Mobile is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 8800M GTX when running the latest games.

The GeForce 8800M GTX has 512 MB video memory, but the Graphics Mobile does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics Mobile (Broadwell) has 12 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 8800M GTX has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics Mobile is 10 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 8800M GTX is 48. The GeForce 8800M GTX having 38 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 8800M GTX delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Graphics Mobile.

The Graphics Mobile transistor size technology is 43 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 8800M GTX. This means that the Graphics Mobile is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 8800M GTX.

The HD Graphics Mobile (Broadwell) requires 4 Watts to run and the GeForce 8800M GTX requires 65 Watts. The GeForce 8800M GTX requires 61 Watts more than the Graphics Mobile to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce 8800M GTX may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Graphics Mobile.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel HD Graphics Mobile (Broadwell) are integrated graphics in the budget Celeron and Pentium Broadwell Mobile processors.
Their performance depends on the processor they are integrated on, as the latter defines the Base and Boost Clock, as well as on the SYSTEM RAM, which defines the operating memory clock, and whether the GPU accesses a 64-bit or 128-bit memory interface.
Best case scenario, the Intel HD Graphics Mobile (Broadwell) performs on par with Intel HD 4000 Graphics and so most modern demanding games will not be playable. Less graphically intense games will be playable at lower graphics settings.
GeForce 8800M GTX is a high-end mobile GPU based on the 65nm variant of the first-shader unified architecture.
It's based on the G92 Core (related to desktop GeForce 8800 GS) and offers 96 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 16 ROPs on a 256-bit memory interface of GDDR3. The central unit runs at 500MHz and the operating memory clock operates at up to 800MHz. Expect up to 65 Watt of TDP.
Its performance is, therefore, slightly below desktop GeForce 8800 GS. Most of today's games should be playable, at least with low detail. However, DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
