In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 7300 SE/7200 GS are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce 6500.

The 7300 SE/7200 was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 6500, and so the 7300 SE/7200 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 6500.

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 6500 has 256 MB video memory, but the 7300 SE/7200 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce 7300 SE/7200 GS has 2 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6500 has 4. The two GPUs are based on different architectures, but deliver an equivalent shader performance. To compare, we must continue to look at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, we sadly do not have enough data in this area to complete the comparison.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe 7200 GS has the same memory speed as the 7300 GS, and the core frequency is the same as the 7300 LE. It has two pixel pipelines. Nvidia stated that the 7200 GS performance is 50% higher than the latest integrated graphics, it's the slowest card of the GeForce 7 Series and of the GeForce 6 Series but supports HDR and Nvidia PureVideo Technology.The NVIDIA GeForce 6500 and 6200 graphics processing units (GPUs) featuring NVIDIA TurboCache technology take full advantage of the PCI Express bus to deliver the turbocharged system performance you need to play all the hottest games and applications.
