In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R6 6700T are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 8600M GS.

The Radeon R6 6700T was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 8600M GS, and so the Radeon R6 6700T is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 8600M GS when running the latest games.

The GeForce 8600M GS has 512 MB video memory, but the Radeon R6 6700T does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon R6 6700T has 128 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 8600M GS has 16. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R6 6700T is 42 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 8600M GS is 10. The Radeon R6 6700T having 32 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce 8600M GS performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon R6 6700T transistor size technology is 52 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 8600M GS. This means that the Radeon R6 6700T is expected to run massively cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 8600M GS. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Radeon R6 6700T should consume less power than the GeForce 8600M GS.

The Radeon R6 6700T requires 5 Watts to run and the GeForce 8600M GS requires 18 Watts. The GeForce 8600M GS requires 13 Watts more than the Radeon R6 6700T to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce 8600M GS to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon R6 6700T.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon R6 6700T is an integrated Graphics Card in the APU A10 Micro-6700T Quad-Core.
It is based on the Graphics Core Next Architecture and offers 128 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. While the central unit is set at 300MHz, the memory bus-width will be of 64-bit, as the processor only support single channeled RAM. The memory clock runs at up to 667MHz.
The Graphics Card also shares the processor's L2 Cache of 2MB. Therefore, it reduces the need to resort to its memory bandwidth.
Therefore, the Graphics Card's performance depends a lot on the system configuration. Best case scenario, expect performance similar to the integrated Intel HD 3000.
The card is only suited for gaming below 720p and not all modern demanding games can be played, even at least on low settings.
GeForce 8600M GS is a middle class level GPU part of the 8000M Series released by NVIDIA, in 2007.
Very demanding games (e.g. Metro 2033, The Witcher 2) are most certainly unplayable and demanding games (e.g. Crysis 2, Skyrim V) might only be playable on the lowest settings. Moderate and less demanding games, like Call of Duty: Black Ops, should be playable smoothly at Medium settings.
