In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 8600M GS are significantly better than the AMD Mobility Radeon HD 530v.

The Radeon HD was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 8600M GS, and so the Radeon HD 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 Radeon HD 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 12.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 8600M GS is slightly better than the Radeon HD.

The Mobility Radeon HD 530v has 80 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 8600M GS has 16. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD is 23 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 8600M GS is 10. The Radeon HD having 13 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce 8600M GS performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

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

The Mobility Radeon HD 530v requires 10 Watts to run and the GeForce 8600M GS requires 18 Watts. The GeForce 8600M GS requires 8 Watts more than the Radeon HD 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 Radeon HD.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewMobility Radeon HD 530v is an entry-level GPU based on the 55nm, Terascale 1 architecture and therefore not related to other Mobility HD 5000 Series GPUs.
It's based on the M92 Core and offers 80 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs, on 64-bit memory interface of standard GDDR3. The central unit runs at 450MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 600MHz. It consumes no more than 10 Watt.
Benchmarks indicate modern demanding games of 2007-2010, such as Crysis, BF2 and Metro 2033 were only playable at low settings smoothly, using a 1024x768 resolution. Therefore, today's modern demanding games should be playable on the low preset, using a 1024x768 resolution and extremely demanding modern games such as Crysis 3 might be unplayable.
As based on the Terascale 1 architecture, DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
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.
