In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics Mobile (Broadwell) are marginally better than the Intel HD i7 3920XM.

The Graphics Mobile was released over a year more recently than the HD i7 3920XM, and so the Graphics Mobile is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the HD i7 3920XM.

The HD Graphics Mobile (Broadwell) and the HD i7 3920XM have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Graphics Mobile has 12.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD i7 3920XM, which means that the memory performance of the Graphics Mobile is slightly better than the HD i7 3920XM.

The HD Graphics Mobile (Broadwell) has 12 Shader Processing Units and the HD i7 3920XM has 16. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics Mobile is 10 and the actual shader performance of the HD i7 3920XM is 51. The HD i7 3920XM having 41 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Graphics Mobile performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The HD Graphics Mobile (Broadwell) requires 4 Watts to run but there is no entry for the HD i7 3920XM.

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.
HD i7 3920XM is a specific version of the Intel HD Graphics 4000 that comes with the CPU 'Core i7-3920XM 4-Core 2.9GHz'.
The new features include DirectX 11 and Tessellation support though using them might not be a very good idea since even strong fast-middle-class GPUs struggle with them.
The core-clock is initially set at 650MHz and will go to up to 1300MHz (the max), if necessary.
It's the fastest variant of the Intel HD Graphics 4000 but the performance depends a lot on the driver support and benchmarks indicate that the most demanding games, such as Metro 2033 can only be played at the lowest settings. Deus Ex 3, for example, ran fine at high settings but other demanding games such as Crysis 2 and Batman: Arkham City only ran fluently at medium settings.
