In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon X1300 256MB are massively better than the Nvidia Riva TNT2 Pro.

The Radeon X1300 256MB was released over three years more recently than the Riva TNT2 Pro, and so the Radeon X1300 256MB is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Riva TNT2 Pro when running the latest games.

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 X1300 256MB has 224 MB more video memory than the Riva TNT2 Pro, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Radeon X1300 256MB also has superior memory performance overall.

The Radeon X1300 256MB has 1.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Riva TNT2 Pro, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon X1300 256MB is marginally better than the Riva TNT2 Pro.

The Riva TNT2 Pro has 2 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon X1300 256MB has 4. However, the actual shader performance of the Riva TNT2 Pro is 0 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon X1300 256MB is 1. The Radeon X1300 256MB having 1 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon X1300 256MB delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Riva TNT2 Pro.

We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the Radeon X1300 256MB, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the Riva TNT2 Pro.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe RIVA TNT2 was a graphics processing unit manufactured by Nvidia starting in early 1999. The chip is codenamed "NV5" because it is the 5th graphics chip design by Nvidia, succeeding the RIVA TNT (NV4). RIVA is an acronym for Real-time Interactive Video and Animation accelerator. The "TNT" suffix refers to the chip's ability to work on two texels at once (TwiN Texel). Nvidia removed RIVA from the name later in the chip's lifetime.Radeon X1300 256MB is an entry-level GPU based on the 90nm variant of the R500 architecture.
It's based on the RV515 Core and offers 4 Pixel Shaders, 4 TMUs and 4 ROPs, on a 128-bit of standard DDR. The central unit runs at 450MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 250MHz.
Radeon X1300 is not much more powerful than R300 and R400 based Radeon X1050 GPUs and so its performance is relatively limited - even for DirectX 9 based games. As it's not based on a Shader-Unified architecture, both DirectX 10 & 11 games aren't supported.
