In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics Mobile (Broadwell) are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 330M.

The GeForce GT 330M has a 275 MHz higher core clock speed and 12 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics Mobile. This results in the GeForce GT 330M providing 8 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 GeForce GT 330M has a 275 MHz higher core clock speed and 6 more Render Output Units than the Graphics Mobile. This results in the GeForce GT 330M providing 4 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 Graphics Mobile was released over three years more recently than the GeForce GT 330M, 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 GT 330M when running the latest games.

The GeForce GT 330M has 1024 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 GT 330M has 48. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics Mobile is 10 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 330M is 63. The GeForce GT 330M having 53 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GT 330M delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Graphics Mobile.

The Graphics Mobile transistor size technology is 18 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GT 330M. This means that the Graphics Mobile is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GT 330M. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Graphics Mobile should consume less power than the GeForce GT 330M.

The HD Graphics Mobile (Broadwell) requires 4 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 330M requires 23 Watts. The GeForce GT 330M requires 19 Watts more than the Graphics Mobile to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce GT 330M 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.
GeForce GT 330M is a middle-class level GFX of the 300M Series released by NVIDIA in 2010. The biggest hindrance it has is the fact that it only supports DirectX up to 10.1 so DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
The performance depends a lot on the memory type used which can either be DDR2 or DDR3. This is the DDR3 version so it's capable of playing demanding games (like Crysis 2) at medium settings. However, very demanding games like Metro 2033 will require very reduced settings to be played smoothly.
