In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon X1050 are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce 8300.

The GeForce 8300 has a 100 MHz higher core clock speed and 4 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon X1050. This results in the GeForce 8300 providing 2.4 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since the GeForce 8300 supports up to DirectX 10.

The GeForce 8300 has a 100 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon X1050 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GeForce 8300 providing 0.4 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce 8300 was released over a year more recently than the Radeon X1050, and so the GeForce 8300 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Radeon X1050.

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 has 128 MB video memory, but the GeForce 8300 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon X1050 has 4 Shader Processing Units but the GeForce 8300 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce 8300 transistor size technology is 30 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon X1050. This means that the GeForce 8300 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon X1050. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GeForce 8300 should consume less power than the Radeon X1050.

The Radeon X1050 requires 24 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 8300. 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.
An NVIDIA® GeForce® 8300 motherboard GPU delivers the power of a discrete GeForce GPU with up to 60% more graphics performance than entry-level graphics cards. Enjoy Windows Vista™ and today’s popular games with DirectX® 10 and watch the latest Blu-ray and HD DVD titles with PureVideo® HD technology. And get the most advanced core logic with Gigabit Ethernet featuring FirstPacket™ technology and MediaShield™ storage technology with RAID5 support.
