In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 9500M are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 3100.

The GeForce 9500M has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The Radeon HD 3100 was released less than a year after the GeForce 9500M, 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 Radeon HD 3100 and the GeForce 9500M 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 Radeon HD 3100 and the GeForce 9500M are the same, which means the Radeon HD 3100 and the GeForce 9500M have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

The Radeon HD 3100 has 40 Shader Processing Units but the GeForce 9500M does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

It had previously been thought that NVIDIA had decided to drop the G and NV nomenclature for a D (for Desktop) nomenclature on their processors. Following the D is the generation number and the target market indicator. NVIDIA's official designations for target markets include Mainstream, Performance, and Enthusiast. For example, the D9E indicates a 9th generation Desktop GeForce video card for the Enthusiast market[1]. However, NVIDIA has actually forked their codenames into those of graphics processors, and those of graphics cards. The GPU cores have kept the prefix 'G' and future versions will include the prefix 'GT'; whereas the actual cards are now codenamed as D, generation number and target market.
