In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 8600M GS are very slightly better than the AMD Radeon HD 6380G.

The Radeon HD 6380G was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 8600M GS, and so the Radeon HD 6380G 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.

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 8600M GS has 512 MB video memory, but the Radeon HD 6380G does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon HD 6380G has 160 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 8600M GS has 16. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 6380G is 42 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 8600M GS is 10. The Radeon HD 6380G having 32 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 6380G requires 35 Watts to run and the GeForce 8600M GS requires 18 Watts. The Radeon HD 6380G requires 17 Watts more than the GeForce 8600M GS to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon HD 6380G to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce 8600M GS.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe AMD Radeon HD 6380G is an integrated processor graphics card in the slowest Llano APUs and it offers 120 of the 400 shader cores clocked at 400MHz. It offers no dedicated graphics memory. It's performance is therefore low and not recommended for gaming users.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.
