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 6530D.

The GTX 650 was released over a year more recently than the Radeon HD 6530D, and so the GTX 650 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Radeon HD 6530D.

The GTX 650 has 512 MB more video memory than the Radeon HD 6530D, 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 50.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 6530D, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 650 is much better than the Radeon HD 6530D.

The GeForce GTX 650 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition has 384 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 6530D has 320. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 650 is 426 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 6530D is 92. The GTX 650 having 334 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 Radeon HD 6530D.

The Radeon HD 6530D requires 64 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GTX 650. 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 6530D is an integrated GPU in one of AMD's processors. It's part of the high-end class GPUS of this Series. It supports DirectX 11 and uses system memory and it only supports DDR3-1866 memory type.
The performance, is obviously, limited but demanding games should still be playable from low to medium settings (depending on the resolution + DirectX version used), while very demanding games might not run at all or might require very reduced settings. All in all, even though it supports DirectX 11, most likely games that use it are unplayable to the lowest settings or only playable on the lowest settings because every game out there using DirectX 11 is either demanding or very demanding.
