In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics Mobile (Broadwell) are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 9500M GS.

The Graphics Mobile was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 9500M GS, 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 9500M GS when running the latest games.

The GeForce 9500M GS 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 9500M GS has 32. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics Mobile is 10 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 9500M GS is 38. The GeForce 9500M GS having 28 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Graphics Mobile performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Graphics Mobile transistor size technology is 58 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 9500M GS. This means that the Graphics Mobile is expected to run massively cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 9500M GS.

The HD Graphics Mobile (Broadwell) requires 4 Watts to run and the GeForce 9500M GS requires 20 Watts. The GeForce 9500M GS requires 16 Watts more than the Graphics Mobile to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce 9500M GS to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than 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.
The NVIDIA GeForce 9500M GS GPUs, deliver the ultimate balance between mobility and performance for astounding PureVideo HD technology playback capabilities combined with 3D features to enable visually-intense applications and games.
