In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 9800M GT are significantly better than the Nvidia NVS 3100M.

The NVS 3100M was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 9800M GT, and so the NVS 3100M is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 9800M GT.

The NVS 3100M and the GeForce 9800M GT have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce 9800M GT has 38.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the NVS 3100M, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 9800M GT is noticeably better than the NVS 3100M.

The NVS 3100M has 16 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 9800M GT has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the NVS 3100M is 10 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 9800M GT is 120. The GeForce 9800M GT having 110 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 9800M GT delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the NVS 3100M.

The NVS 3100M transistor size technology is 25 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 9800M GT. This means that the NVS 3100M is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 9800M GT.

The NVS 3100M requires 14 Watts to run and the GeForce 9800M GT requires 65 Watts. The GeForce 9800M GT requires 51 Watts more than the NVS 3100M to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce 9800M GT may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the NVS 3100M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewNVS 3100M is an entry-level business card with support for special drivers that are certified for professional applications like Microsoft Office Suite, Hummingbird Exceed, Lotus Notes, etc. It's part of the NVS Mobile Series released by NVIDIA, in 2010/2011.
Though business cards have no driver support for games, some of them deliver astonishing performance (e.g. Quadro 6000, Tesla C2075). NVS 3100M does support DirectX 10.1 but the limited Memory Bus and all the rest put together result in poor gaming performance. Still, it should be enough to handle demanding games like, Crysis 2, on the lowest settings possible but games like Metro 2033 are probably unplayable at the lowest settings.
NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GT GPUs deliver optimized performance for immersive gaming on-the-go. Powering the next generation of visual computing, blazing-fast mobile gaming, and the ultimate HD experience with PureVideo HD technology. This product is also enabled for CUDA applications and is NVIDIA PhysX-ready.
