In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Mobility Radeon HD 3650 are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce 8600M GS.

The Radeon HD was released less than a year after the GeForce 8600M GS, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance 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 Mobility Radeon HD 3650 and the GeForce 8600M GS have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The memory bandwidth of the Mobility Radeon HD 3650 and the GeForce 8600M GS are the same, which means the Radeon HD and the GeForce 8600M GS have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

The Mobility Radeon HD 3650 has 120 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 8600M GS has 16. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD is 72 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 8600M GS is 10. The Radeon HD having 62 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon HD delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 8600M GS.

The Mobility Radeon HD 3650 requires 30 Watts to run and the GeForce 8600M GS requires 18 Watts. The Radeon HD requires 12 Watts more than the GeForce 8600M GS to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon HD to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce 8600M GS.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3000 Series of discrete graphics allow you to experience the power of HD with graphics processing designed for how you work and play. Advance to the next generation of HD game performance and lifelike realism thanks to Microsoft DirectX 10.1 capabilities and PCI Express 2.0 support for fast throughput and superior overall system performance. Watch the latest Blu-ray and HD-DVD videos in full-HD 1080p image resolution off your graphics processor and reduce demands on your CPU. Enjoy breakthrough energy efficiency with superb performance-per-watt delivering exceptional battery life.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.
