In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce Go 6800 ultra are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 9500M.

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

The GeForce 9500M was released over a year more recently than the Go 6800, and so the GeForce 9500M is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Go 6800.

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 Go 6800 has 256 MB video memory, but the GeForce 9500M does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

Both the GeForce 9500M and the GeForce Go 6800 ultra have 0 Shader Processing Units. The two GPUs are based on different architectures, but deliver an equivalent shader performance. To compare, we must continue to look at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, we sadly do not have enough data in this area to complete the comparison.

The GeForce Go 6800 ultra requires 89 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 9500M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewAlso 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.
NVIDIA GeForce Go 6800 Ultra is the most powerful GPU of the whole Go 6000 Series.
It has up to 256MB of dedicated memory and it uses DDR3 memory type.
The performance would have been great if it didn't heat way too much when handling demanding games. The power consumption (89 watts) is also colossal, compared to the performance it delivers.
