I just couldn't find any benchmarks, so I'm curious, how well does the G210M actually perform, say, compared to GMA965 and 8500GT and other low-end cards.

EDIT: Actually, I want to know how the GT220M performs as well.

ANOTHER EDIT: Just found a laptop I'm liking with the GT230, now I need some opinions on that as well.

The G210M would probably be slightly weaker than the 8500GT, the GT220M would be about on par with the 8600GT. Both are more powerful than the GMA965 (anything is, really).

The G210M is probably like an 8400 GS.

Aight, so how about the GT230M, how would it stack up against the old 8-series or 9-series cards, or ATI's 3-4-series mainstream GPUs.

The GT 230M looks to be a slightly lower clocked version of the desktop GT 220, which might be around or just over 9500 GT performance in gaming, with probably better GPGPU performance. It is a DX 10.1 card with 48SP and can use DDR2, DDR3 or GDDR3. Obviously the faster RAM versions will perform better. It is made on the 40nm process so it doesn't use much power compared to older GPUs.

I have an Asus UL30VT which has a G210M paired with a SU7300 1.73ghz 3mb C2D. I had time to do a little benchmarking/overclocking.

stock:
606/1468/790
3dmark06: ~3450

oc'd:
768/1741/1017
3dmark06: ~4150

The 27% overclock only resulted in a 4*C rise in temp.

Honestly if you're looking for something that can run modern games, you're going to want to go with something more powerful, but the G210M is great for an ultraportable such as this.
