In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 9800M GTS SLI are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon HD 8610G.

The Radeon HD 8610G was released over three years more recently than the 9800M GTS, and so the Radeon HD 8610G is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the 9800M GTS when running the latest games.

The 9800M GTS has 2048 MB video memory, but the Radeon HD 8610G does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon HD 8610G has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 9800M GTS SLI has 128. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 8610G is 240 and the actual shader performance of the 9800M GTS is 77. The Radeon HD 8610G having 163 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the 9800M GTS performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon HD 8610G requires 25 Watts to run and the GeForce 9800M GTS SLI requires 150 Watts. The 9800M GTS requires 125 Watts more than the Radeon HD 8610G to run. The difference is significant enough that the 9800M GTS may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Radeon HD 8610G.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 8610G is an integrated mobile GPU, first seen on the ultra low-voltage APU A10-5745M, based on the 32nm, Terascale 3 architecture.
It offer 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs, on a DDR3 memory interface of either a 128-bit bus width, if the laptop system RAM's is dual-channelled, or a 64-bit bus width, if not. The central units runs at 533MHz and goes up to 626MHz, in Turbo Mode. The memory clock can operate up to 667MHz, as the max memory supported by the CPU is DDR3-1333.
Its performance depends heavily on whether or not the memory is dual-channelled. Benchmarks put its performance on level with today's middle-class GPUs such as GeForce GT 540M-GeForce GT 630M or Radeon HD 7650M/7670M. Therefore, modern demanding games can be played with medium detail.
GeForce 9800M GTS SLI is a solution of two GeForce 9800M GTS put together using NVIDIA'S SLI technology.
Check the page of GeForce 9800M GTS 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 GTS 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 GTS.
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.
