In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6200 TurboCache are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce 6100.

The GeForce 6100 was released less than a year after the GeForce 6200 TurboCache, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance 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 GeForce 6100 has 128 MB more video memory than the GeForce 6200 TurboCache, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce 6100 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce 6200 TurboCache has 2.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 6100, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 6200 TurboCache is marginally better than the GeForce 6100.

The GeForce 6100 has 2 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6200 TurboCache has 7. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6100 is 1 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6200 TurboCache is 2. The GeForce 6200 TurboCache having 1 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 6200 TurboCache delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 6100.
