In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6600 GT are significantly better than the AMD Radeon X1050.

The Radeon X1050 was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 6600 GT, and so the Radeon X1050 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 6600 GT.

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 6600 GT have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce 6600 GT has 9.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon X1050, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 6600 GT is marginally better than the Radeon X1050.

The Radeon X1050 has 4 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6600 GT has 11. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon X1050 is 1 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6600 GT is 6. The GeForce 6600 GT having 5 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 6600 GT delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon X1050.

The Radeon X1050 requires 24 Watts to run and the GeForce 6600 GT requires 48 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Radeon X1050. The GeForce 6600 GT requires 24 Watts more than the Radeon X1050 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce 6600 GT to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than 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.
Supercharge your gaming with the power of an NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GPU. The NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GPUs deliver best-in-class performance and advanced visual effects for next-generation games. The only GPU in its class with support for Microsoft DirectX 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 and with support for PCI Express, the GeForce 6600 delivers ultra-realistic effects, unmatched features, and rock-solid stability so you can play your game the way itís meant to be played.
