8600GT vs 9500GS ?

between these two which one is better?

NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT 256MB GDDR3 VRAM, TurboCache up to 512MB

vs

GeForce 9500M GS 512MB DDR2 (maybe up to 1gb w/ tc)


cuz asus guys replaced my motherboard/graphic card from 8600 to 9500 w/o any notice

and they said that they have no more stock for 8600 & those have a similar perfomance

but most people are saying that 9500 is suck, it's downgrade, blahblah

so i want to heard everyone's opinion

  1. The 9500 GS is actually a hair better...

    "The GeForce 9500M GS is a middle class graphics card from the GeForce 9000M series and the successor of the 8600M GT GPU. Benchmarks show an average 10% increase of frame rates in all games because of internal optimizations (compared to a 8600M GT with the same GPU and memory clock). According to Nvidia the card should also have a lower current consumption."
  2. They perform very close to each other but the 9500MGS has an slight lead.
