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 X850 XT Platinum.

The GTX 650 was released over three years more recently than the X850 XT, 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 X850 XT when running the latest games.

The GTX 650 has 768 MB more video memory than the X850 XT, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 650 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 650 has 4.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the X850 XT, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 650 is marginally better than the X850 XT.

The GeForce GTX 650 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition has 384 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon X850 XT Platinum has 16. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 650 is 426 and the actual shader performance of the X850 XT is 6. The GTX 650 having 420 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 650 delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the X850 XT.

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.
The Radeon X800 'R430'-based 110 nanometer series was introduced at the end of 2004 along with ATI's new X850 cards. The X800 was designed to replace the position X700 XT failed to secure, with 12 pipelines and a 256-bit RAM bus. The card more than surpassed the 6600GT with performance similar to that of the GeForce 6800. A close relative, the new X800 XL, was positioned to dethrone NVIDIA's GeForce 6800 GT with higher memory speeds and a full 16 pipelines to boost performance. R430 was unable to reach high clock speeds, being mainly designed to reduce the cost per GPU, and so a new top-of-the-line core was still needed. The new high-end R4x0-generation arrived with the X850 series, equipped with various core tweaks for slightly higher performance than the 'R420'-based X800 series. The 'R480'-based X850 line was available in 3 forms: the X850 Pro, the X850 XT, and the X850 XT Platinum Edition, and was built on the reliable high-performance 130 nm Low-K process.
