In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 6850M are massively better than the AMD Mobility Radeon X600.

The Radeon HD 6850M was released over three years more recently than the Mobility Radeon X600, and so the Radeon HD 6850M is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Mobility Radeon X600 when running the latest games.

The Radeon HD 6850M has 896 MB more video memory than the Mobility Radeon X600, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Radeon HD 6850M also has superior memory performance overall.

The Radeon HD 6850M has 21.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Mobility Radeon X600, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon HD 6850M is slightly better than the Mobility Radeon X600.

The Radeon HD 6850M has 800 Shader Processing Units and the Mobility Radeon X600 has 2. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 6850M is 270 and the actual shader performance of the Mobility Radeon X600 is 1. The Radeon HD 6850M having 269 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon HD 6850M delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Mobility Radeon X600.

The Radeon HD 6850M requires 50 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Mobility Radeon X600.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 6850M is a high-end GPU based on the 40nm Terrascale 2 architecture.
It's based on the Juniper Core (therefore related to Radeon HD 6770) and offers 800 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 16 ROPs on a 128-bit memory interface. Though fast GDDR5 is supported, the most common version features standard DDR3 but comes higher clocked. Its central clock runs at 675MHz and the memory clock operates at 800MHz.
Compared to Radeon HD 6850M, its performance is considerably slower due to being paired with standard DDR3 and the power consumption should remain similar since GDDR5 is more energy efficient.
Using a 720p resolution, most of today's games are only playable at medium settings but with very fluent frame rates (45+).
Notebook PCs based on AMD's mainstream notebook platform are designed to deliver real entertainment with the ultimate in HD visual performance. Superior technologies are optimized to create an immersive visual experience with improved graphics performance, fast wireless and long battery life. Add in more notebook PC choices from leading PC manufacturers and you get an incredible value one that you can only get from AMD.
