In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6500 are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon Xpress 1100 128mb.

The Xpress 1100 was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 6500, and so the Xpress 1100 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 128 MB more video memory than the Xpress 1100, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce 6500 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce 6500 has 5.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Xpress 1100, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 6500 is marginally better than the Xpress 1100.

The GeForce 6500 has 4 Shader Processing Units but the Xpress 1100 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe 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. The Radeon R300 (introduced August 2002) is the third generation of Radeon graphics chips from ATI Technologies. The line features 3D acceleration based upon Direct3D 9.0 and OpenGL 2.0, a major improvement in features and performance compared to the preceding Radeon R200 design. R300 was the first fully Direct3D 9-capable consumer graphics chip. The processors also include 2D GUI acceleration, video acceleration, and multiple display outputs. R300 refers to the development codename of the initially released GPU of the generation. R300 and its derivatives would form the basis for ATI's consumer and professional product lines for over 3 years.
The integrated graphics processor based upon R300 is called Xpress 200.
