In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition are massively better than the AMD Radeon HD 3600 Series.

The HD 3600 has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The GTX 650 was released over three years more recently than the HD 3600, and so the GTX 650 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the HD 3600 when running the latest games.

The GTX 650 has 1024 MB video memory, but the HD 3600 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce GTX 650 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition has 384 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 3600 Series has 120. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 650 is 426 and the actual shader performance of the HD 3600 is 0. The GTX 650 having 426 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 650 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 3600.

We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 650.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 650 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class GeForce GTX 650 1GB.
This special edition comes overclocked out of the box to 1110MHz and features a custom-designed 10 cm cooler.
Benchmarks indicate a 4% performance boost when compared to the reference card and so this GPU is suitable for medium to high settings on most demanding games but not with extreme resolutions.
Radeon HD 3600 Series is not a GPU but instead a combination between Radeon HD 3650 and Radeon HD 3690 whose rank is a balance between the two and that exists for System Requirements purposes only.
