TDP, or Thermal Design Power represents the maximum heat generated by the component under normal working condition.

TGP, or Total Graphics Power represents the maximum amount of power system power supply should provide to the graphics board.

TDP is a rating of heat generation and TGP is rating of power wattage.  Despite both being rated in Watts, TDP is not TGP but a good approximation of TGP when TGP is not available.
