In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel GMA 3600 are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce 8200M G.

The GMA 3600 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 8200M G, and so the GMA 3600 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 8200M G when running the latest games.

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 GMA 3600 and the GeForce 8200M G have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GMA 3600 has 8.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 8200M G, which means that the memory performance of the GMA 3600 is marginally better than the GeForce 8200M G.

The GMA 3600 has 4 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 8200M G has 8. However, the actual shader performance of the GMA 3600 is 2 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 8200M G is 3. The GeForce 8200M G having 1 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GMA 3600 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GMA 3600 requires 13 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 8200M G.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel GMA 3600 is a mobile GFX integrated on Atom's CedarView based CPUs.
It's based on the 32nm PowerVR architecture and offers 4 Pixel Shaders, 2 TMUs and 2 ROPs. The central unit runs at 400MHz. The memory clock will operate at up to 533MHz (max memory speed supported by the CPU).
It should only be compatible with DirectX 10 & 11 via software as it's not based in a Shader unified architecture.
None of today's modern demanding games are playable and even modest games will be trouble for this GPU. Its performance is surprisingly below AMD's and NVIDIA's 2008 entry-level/motherboard GPUs.
GeForce 8400M GT is an on-board GPU part of the 8000M Series released by NVIDIA, in 2007.
Only less demanding games can be played smoothly.
