In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 6290 are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 8200M G.

The Radeon HD 6290 was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 8200M G, and so the Radeon HD 6290 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 8200M G.

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 6290 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 Radeon HD 6290 has 25.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 8200M G, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon HD 6290 is slightly better than the GeForce 8200M G.

The Radeon HD 6290 has 80 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 8200M G has 8. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 6290 is 21 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 8200M G is 3. The Radeon HD 6290 having 18 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon HD 6290 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 8200M G.

The Radeon HD 6290 requires 9 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 8200M G.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 6290 is an integrated GPU in one of the Zacate Processors, based on the 40nm Terrascale 2 architecture.
It's based on the Cedar Core (therefore related to Radeon HD 6350) and offers 80 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. Both the operating memory clock's speed and bus width will depend on the system's RAM configuration and speed. Its central clock runs at up to 400MHz.
Its performance is very limited and so today's modern games can only be played using very low resolutions such as 800x680 - 1024x768 or are unplayable at all.
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.
