Gaming performance

Let's see how good GeForce 9700M GT and UHD Graphics 600 are for gaming. Particular gaming benchmark results are measured in FPS.

Advantages of NVIDIA GeForce 9700M GT

66.7% faster (about 1.5 times) in synthetic tests
Wider memory bus (128 vs 64 bit)
More pipelines (32 vs 12)
PCI-E 2.0
PureVideo HD Technologie (VP3)
Hybrid SLI mit HybridPower (with nVidia 9100 chipset)
CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture - an API for video card computing power usage in tasks different from 3D graphics processing. Can be used for physics simulation for instance)
PhysX ready
PhysX (hardware acceleration of physical simulation engine named PhysX)

Advantages of Intel UHD Graphics 600

Much newer (11 December 2017 vs 3 June 2008)
Finer manufacturing process technology (14 vs 65 nm)
Less power hungry (5 vs 45 watts)
