Advantages of AMD Radeon R9 M470

1.5% faster in synthetic tests
Much newer (15 May 2016 vs 13 March 2015)
More pipelines (768 vs 640)
Higher memory bandwidth (96 vs 32 GB/s)
DirectCompute 5.0
OpenCL (Open Computing Language - an API for GPU usage in arbitrary calculations, e.g. for physics simulation)

Advantages of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M

Battery Boost (saves energy while gaming by lowering FPS to a still acceptable level. Can make a laptop working on battery twice as long, depending on the particular game)
GameStream (streams data between the PC and NVIDIA SHIELD device attached to a TV. Basically allows using the PC as a gaming console)
ShadowPlay (allows recording and streaming video during gaming on NVIDIA GPUs)
GPU Boost 2.0 (increases NVIDIA GPU voltage and frequency when there's a temperature headroom. Similar to AMD PowerTune)
Optimus (lowers energy usage by automatically switching between integrated and discrete NVIDIA GPU. Similar to AMD Enduro)
PhysX (hardware acceleration of physical simulation engine named PhysX)
CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture - an API for video card computing power usage in tasks different from 3D graphics processing. Can be used for physics simulation for instance)
SLI (Scalable Link Interface - a technology for uniting several NVIDIA GPUs processing power in one PC)
GeForce Experience (software suite built to manage NVIDIA GPU parameters, and to record and stream game video)
GameWorks
Adaptive VSync
