In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 8200M G are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce Go 6100.

The GeForce 8200M G was released over a year more recently than the GeForce Go 6100, and so the GeForce 8200M G is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce Go 6100.

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 Go 6100 and the GeForce 8200M G 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 GeForce Go 6100 and the GeForce 8200M G are the same, which means the GeForce Go 6100 and the GeForce 8200M G have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

The GeForce 8200M G has 8 Shader Processing Units but the GeForce Go 6100 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce Go 6150 is an integrated GPU in a NVIDIA motherboard (nForce Go 430 in this case). Not only it uses shared memory, it only supports DirectX up to 9. Therefore, even old games (before 2006) will require reduced settings.GeForce 8400M GT is an on-board GPU part of the 8000M Series released by NVIDIA, in 2007.
Only less demanding games can be played smoothly.
