In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon X1050 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce FX 5600 XT.

The Radeon X1050 was released over three years more recently than the FX 5600 XT, and so the Radeon X1050 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the FX 5600 XT 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 X1050 and the GeForce FX 5600 XT have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Radeon X1050 has 2.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the FX 5600 XT, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon X1050 is marginally better than the FX 5600 XT.

Both the Radeon X1050 and the GeForce FX 5600 XT have 4 Shader Processing Units. 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.

The Radeon X1050 requires 24 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce FX 5600 XT. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Radeon X1050.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon X1050 is an entry-level GFX based on the 110nm variant of the R300 architecture.
It's based on the RV370 Core and offers 4 Pixel Shaders, 4 TMUs and 4 ROPs, on a 64-bit of standard DDR2. The central unit runs at 400MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 333MHz. Expect a TDP of up to 24 Watt.
Radeon X1050 is not related to the rest of the X1000 Series GPUs due to being based on the R300 architecture and not on the R500. 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.
The top-to-bottom family of NVIDIA GeForce FX GPUs provide both high-performance gaming for enthusiasts and best-in-class features for mainstream users. Whether you're a bleeding-edge gamer who desires the most advanced gaming technology available, or a PC user in search of the perfect combination of power, performance, and value--GeForce FX solutions deliver.
