In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 6480G are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 8600M GS.

The Radeon HD 6480G was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 8600M GS, and so the Radeon HD 6480G is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 8600M GS when running the latest games.

The GeForce 8600M GS has 512 MB video memory, but the Radeon HD 6480G does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon HD 6480G has 240 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 8600M GS has 16. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 6480G is 69 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 8600M GS is 10. The Radeon HD 6480G having 59 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce 8600M GS performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce 8600M GS requires 18 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 6480G.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGet the power of two when you purchase an A-Series AMD Accelerated Processor (APU) based PC with an AMD Radeon™ DirectX® 11 capable discrete graphics card. Only AMD Radeon™ Dual Graphics combines two powerful Radeon™ DirectX11 enabled graphics processors to provide the ultimate gaming performance boost when you need it. Experience gaming at higher resolutions with greater image quality and boost visual performance up to 123% when you combine this AMD Quad-Core A8 desktop APU with the AMD Radeon™ HD 6670 graphics card.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.
