In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 8600M GS are significantly better than the Intel GS45 Express Chipset.

The GS45 Express Chipset has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The GS45 Express Chipset was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 8600M GS, and so the GS45 Express Chipset is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 8600M GS.

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 8600M GS has 512 MB video memory, but the GS45 Express Chipset does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce 8600M GS has 16 Shader Processing Units but the GS45 Express Chipset does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GS45 Express Chipset requires 12 Watts to run and the GeForce 8600M GS requires 18 Watts. The GeForce 8600M GS requires 6 Watts more than the GS45 Express Chipset to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce 8600M GS to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GS45 Express Chipset.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel GS45 Express Chipset comes embedded on the Core 2 Solo, Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Extreme, Celeron M and features an integrated GPU called Integrated GMA X4500HD.
Its performance will depend on the CPU its embedded, as it may be equipped with DDR2 or DDR3 and have a lower or high central clock. In any case, its performance is very limited and not recommended for any of today's games.
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.
