In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 9500M are significantly better than the Intel GMA 3600.

The GeForce 9500M has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The GMA 3600 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 9500M, 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 9500M 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 9500M 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 9500M, which means that the memory performance of the GMA 3600 is marginally better than the GeForce 9500M.

The GMA 3600 has 4 Shader Processing Units but the GeForce 9500M does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GMA 3600 requires 13 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 9500M.

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.
Also known as GeForce 9500M GE
It had previously been thought that NVIDIA had decided to drop the G and NV nomenclature for a D (for Desktop) nomenclature on their processors. Following the D is the generation number and the target market indicator. NVIDIA's official designations for target markets include Mainstream, Performance, and Enthusiast. For example, the D9E indicates a 9th generation Desktop GeForce video card for the Enthusiast market[1]. However, NVIDIA has actually forked their codenames into those of graphics processors, and those of graphics cards. The GPU cores have kept the prefix 'G' and future versions will include the prefix 'GT'; whereas the actual cards are now codenamed as D, generation number and target market.
