In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 9800M GT are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce Go 7900 GS.

The GeForce 9800M GT was released over a year more recently than the Go 7900, and so the GeForce 9800M GT is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Go 7900.

The GeForce 9800M GT and the GeForce Go 7900 GS have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce 9800M GT has 19.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Go 7900, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 9800M GT is slightly better than the Go 7900.

The GeForce 9800M GT has 96 Shader Processing Units but the Go 7900 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce 9800M GT requires 65 Watts to run and the GeForce Go 7900 GS requires 20 Watts. The GeForce 9800M GT requires 45 Watts more than the Go 7900 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce 9800M GT may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Go 7900.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewNVIDIA GeForce 9800M GT GPUs deliver optimized performance for immersive gaming on-the-go. Powering the next generation of visual computing, blazing-fast mobile gaming, and the ultimate HD experience with PureVideo HD technology. This product is also enabled for CUDA applications and is NVIDIA PhysX-ready.GeForce Go 7900 GS is a high-end-class level GPU.
It can use up to 512MB of dedicated video memory, and it's only available with a DDR3 memory type + a 256 bits Memory Bus Width.
Due to its features and unlike the previous GeForce Go models, it should be able to play today's games, that use DirectX 9 (e.g. Sims 3, Anno 1404 and even Crysis) at the lowest settings.
