In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 8600M GS are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce G 110M.

The GeForce G 110M was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 8600M GS, and so the GeForce G 110M 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 110M has 512 MB more video memory than the GeForce 8600M GS, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GeForce 8600M GS has superior memory performance.

The GeForce 8600M GS has 11.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce G 110M, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 8600M GS is slightly better than the GeForce G 110M.

Both the GeForce G 110M and the GeForce 8600M GS have 16 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the GeForce G 110M is 16 and by the GeForce 8600M GS is 10. Knowing that the shader performance of the GeForce G 110M is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The GeForce G 110M transistor size technology is 25 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 8600M GS. This means that the GeForce G 110M is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 8600M GS. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GeForce G 110M should consume less power than the GeForce 8600M GS.

The GeForce G 110M 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 110M 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 110M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce G 110M 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 'G96b' and it's technically a GeForce 8400M GS manufactured at 55nm, instead of 85nm or a slow GeForce 9500M G, due to the lower clock frequencies. With only a 64 bit Memory Bus and fairly low clock rates, the performance is quite low so even though it supports DirectX 10, demanding 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. Less demanding games should run smoothly at medium or high 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.
