In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon X1050 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 7300 GS 256MB.

The Radeon X1050 was released less than a year after the 7300 GS, 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 7300 GS has 128 MB more video memory than the Radeon X1050, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the 7300 GS also has superior memory performance overall.

The 7300 GS has 1.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon X1050, which means that the memory performance of the 7300 GS is marginally better than the Radeon X1050.

Both the Radeon X1050 and the GeForce 7300 GS 256MB have 4 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the 7300 GS is 2 and by the Radeon X1050 is 2. Knowing that the shader performance of the 7300 GS is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The Radeon X1050 requires 24 Watts to run and the GeForce 7300 GS 256MB requires 23 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Radeon X1050 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the 7300 GS. The Radeon X1050 requires 1 Watts more than the 7300 GS to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon X1050 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the 7300 GS.

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 NVIDIA GeForce 7 Series graphics processing units (GPUs) represent a significant leap forward in 3D graphics design, delivering the unparalleled horsepower and revolutionary technologies you need to tackle the latest games and video applications. The GeForce 7 Series GPUs deliver blazing frame rates and outstanding image quality so you can experience full-throttle graphics performance.
