I might be able to help, but I can't give you firsthand experience since how I haven't owned any of these cards. So instead of boasting about how good my laptop is(n't) here are the technical specs of the cards you've mentioned in comparison to each other (according to notebookcheck.com)

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900.

Specifications

  • performance class: 5
  • codename: GMA 950
  • pipelines: 4 pixel-pipelines
  • clock: chip: 400 MHz
  • memory: main memory shared
  • directX: 9c, Shader Model 2.0
  • features: Transform and Lighting Hardware Support, HDTV Hardware Motion Compensation
  • manufacturer site: product page
  • application area: small and light-weight notebooks

Benchmarks

Here you find a list with approximative benchmark values, which can be achieved with this video card. The values can strongly deviate due to different hardware (processor, memory).

  • 3DMark01: 1300 points
  • 3DMark03: 1300 points
  • 3DMark05: 450 points



NVIDIA GeForce Go 6100 / 6150

NVIDIA GeForce Go 6100 / 6150 is the integrated graphic of NVIDIA nForce Go 430 MCP for AMD Turion notebooks. It doesn't have any integrated memory, but uses a part of the mainmemory (up to 128 MB) like the direct competitor Intel GMA 950. Therefore the gaming performance is quite moderate and can only be used for elder games.

Specifications

  • performance class: 5
  • series: GeForce Go 6000
  • clock: Chip: 425 MHz
  • memory: shared Memory, Turbocache bis 128MB
  • directX: 9c, Shader Model 3.0
