In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 8600M GS are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce Go 7600 512MB DDR2.

The GeForce 8600M GS was released over a year more recently than the Go 7600, and so the GeForce 8600M GS is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Go 7600.

Both GPUs exhibit very poor performance, so rather than upgrading from one to the other you should consider looking at more powerful GPUs. Neither of these will be able to run the latest games in any playable way.

The GeForce Go 7600 512MB DDR2 and the GeForce 8600M GS have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce 8600M GS has 10.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Go 7600, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 8600M GS is slightly better than the Go 7600.

The GeForce Go 7600 512MB DDR2 has 8 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 8600M GS has 16. However, the actual shader performance of the Go 7600 is 4 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 8600M GS is 10. The GeForce 8600M GS having 6 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 8600M GS delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Go 7600.

The GeForce 8600M GS requires 18 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Go 7600.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce Go 7600 512MB DDR2 is one of the variants of GeForce Go 7600.
Compared to the GeForce Go 7600, the bandwidth is much lower due to the fact it's paired with slow DDR2.
GeForce 8600M GS is a middle class level GPU part of the 8000M Series released by NVIDIA, in 2007.
Very demanding games (e.g. Metro 2033, The Witcher 2) are most certainly unplayable and demanding games (e.g. Crysis 2, Skyrim V) might only be playable on the lowest settings. Moderate and less demanding games, like Call of Duty: Black Ops, should be playable smoothly at Medium settings.
