In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Mobility Radeon 9600 Series are very slightly 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 three years more recently than the Radeon 9600, and so the GeForce 9500M is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Radeon 9600 when running the latest games.

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 Radeon 9600 has 128 MB video memory, but the GeForce 9500M does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce 9500M has 0 Shader Processing Units and the Mobility Radeon 9600 Series has 2. 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.

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.
Notebook PCs based on AMD's mainstream notebook platform are designed to deliver real entertainment with the ultimate in HD visual performance. Superior technologies are optimized to create an immersive visual experience with improved graphics performance, fast wireless and long battery life. Add in more notebook PC choices from leading PC manufacturers and you get an incredible value one that you can only get from AMD.
