In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 9800M GT SLI are massively better than the AMD Mobility Radeon HD 3430.

The Radeon HD was released less than a year after the 9800M GT, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The 9800M GT has 768 MB more video memory than the Radeon HD, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the 9800M GT also has superior memory performance overall.

The 9800M GT has 91.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD, which means that the memory performance of the 9800M GT is massively better than the Radeon HD.

The GeForce 9800M GT SLI has 192 Shader Processing Units and the Mobility Radeon HD 3430 has 40. However, the actual shader performance of the 9800M GT is 96 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD is 18. The 9800M GT having 78 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the 9800M GT delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon HD.

The GeForce 9800M GT SLI requires 130 Watts to run and the Mobility Radeon HD 3430 requires 10 Watts. The 9800M GT requires 120 Watts more than the Radeon HD to run. The difference is significant enough that the 9800M GT may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Radeon HD.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce 9800M GT SLI is a solution of two GeForce 9800M GT put together using NVIDIA'S SLI technology.
Check the page of GeForce 9800M GT to know more about its chip.
As usual, SLI relies a lot on proper driver support and may suffer from micro-stuttering in lower frame rates (below 30). Benchmarks indicate the performance is overall, up to X% better than a single GeForce 9800M GT performing by itself but at times (depending whether or not the 3D game supports SLI or in the graphics driver) it performed worse than a single GeForce 9800M GT.
A few demanding games will run at the highest settings with fluent frame rates (30+) but overall most games will require reduced settings to be played optimally.
The ATI Mobility Radeon? HD 3000 Series of discrete graphics allow you to experience the power of HD with graphics processing designed for how you work and play. Advance to the next generation of HD game performance and lifelike realism thanks to Microsoft? DirectX? 10.1 capabilities and PCI Express? 2.0 support for fast throughput and superior overall system performance. Watch the latest Blu-ray and HD-DVD videos in full-HD 1080p image resolution off your graphics processor and reduce demands on your CPU. Enjoy breakthrough energy efficiency with superb performance-per-watt delivering exceptional battery life.
