In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 8600M GS are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce G 105M.

The GeForce G 105M was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 8600M GS, and so the GeForce G 105M is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 8600M GS.

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 GeForce G 105M 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 GeForce 8600M GS has 11.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce G 105M, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 8600M GS is slightly better than the GeForce G 105M.

The GeForce G 105M has 8 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 8600M GS has 16. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce G 105M is 5 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 8600M GS is 10. The GeForce 8600M GS having 5 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 8600M GS delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce G 105M.

The GeForce G 105M requires 14 Watts to run and the GeForce 8600M GS requires 18 Watts. The GeForce 8600M GS requires 4 Watts more than the GeForce G 105M 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 GeForce G 105M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce G 105M is an entry-class level GPU of the 100M Series released by NVIDIA, in 2009.
Since it only supports DirectX up to 10, games that use DirectX 11 are not supported and unplayable.
It uses the architecture 'G98', which is the same of the GeForce 9300M GS but comes with higher clock frequencies and it's manufactured at 55nm instead of 65nm, so the performance is a little better and even though it supports DirectX 10, even most forgiving games that use it, will only be playable at low settings.
Very demanding games like Metro 2033 or The Witcher 2 are certainly unplayable, even at the lowest settings, while demanding games like Crysis 2 and Skyrim V might be playable at low settings. Even less demanding, modern, games, like Sims 3, require reduced settings to run smoothly.
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.
