In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 8610G are significantly better than the Nvidia NVS 5100M.

The Radeon HD 8610G was released over three years more recently than the NVS 5100M, 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 NVS 5100M when running the latest games.

The NVS 5100M has 1024 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 NVS 5100M has 48. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 8610G is 240 and the actual shader performance of the NVS 5100M is 26. The Radeon HD 8610G having 214 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon HD 8610G delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the NVS 5100M.

The Radeon HD 8610G transistor size technology is 8 nm (nanometers) smaller than the NVS 5100M. This means that the Radeon HD 8610G is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the NVS 5100M.

The Radeon HD 8610G requires 25 Watts to run and the NVS 5100M requires 35 Watts. The NVS 5100M requires 10 Watts more than the Radeon HD 8610G to run. The difference is not significant enough for the NVS 5100M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than 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.
NVS 5100M is an entry-level business card with support for special drivers that are certified for professional applications like Microsoft Office Suite, Hummingbird Exceed, Lotus Notes, etc. It's part of the NVS Mobile Series released by NVIDIA, in 2010/2011.
Though business cards have no driver support for games, some of them deliver astonishing performance (e.g. Quadro 6000, Tesla C2075). Considering the specifications the performance should be better yet similar to the middle-class GeForce 230M and therefore Very demanding games like Metro 2033 might be unplayable even at the lowest settings or only playable at the lowest resolution, which is unbearable, even to the casual gamer. Even old demanding games like Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare require reduced settings smoothly.
