In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 3400 Series are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce 6800 XT.

The HD 3400 was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 6800 XT, and so the HD 3400 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 6800 XT.

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 HD 3400 Series and the GeForce 6800 XT have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce 6800 XT has 11.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 3400, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 6800 XT is slightly better than the HD 3400.

The Radeon HD 3400 Series has 40 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6800 XT has 12. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 3400 is 16 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6800 XT is 4. The HD 3400 having 12 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce 6800 XT performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon HD 3400 Series requires 65 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 6800 XT.
