In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon X1650 PRO are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 6800 XT.

The X1650 PRO was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 6800 XT, and so the X1650 PRO is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 6800 XT.

The Radeon X1650 PRO and the GeForce 6800 XT have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The X1650 PRO has 11.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 6800 XT, which means that the memory performance of the X1650 PRO is slightly better than the GeForce 6800 XT.

Both the Radeon X1650 PRO and the GeForce 6800 XT have 12 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the X1650 PRO is 5 and by the GeForce 6800 XT is 4. Knowing that the shader performance of the X1650 PRO is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The Radeon X1650 PRO requires 44 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 6800 XT.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon X1650 PRO is a middle-class GPU based on the 80nm variant of the R500 architecture.
It's based on the RV535 Core and offers 12 Pixel Shaders, 8 TMUs and 8 ROPs, on a 128-bit of standard GDDR3. The central unit runs at 600MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 700MHz.
It should perform considerably better on today's modern games than Radeon X1650 GT thanks to the extra video memory and higher shading power.
Some of today's games might be playable at medium settings although the low preset will have to be used on most. As it's not based on a Shader-Unified architecture, both DirectX 10 & 11 games aren't supported.
The groundbreaking new NVIDIA GeForce 6800 graphics processing units (GPUs) and their revolutionary technologies power worlds where reality and fantasy meet; worlds in which new standards are set for visual realism and quality, performance, and video functionality. The GeForce 6800 GPUs deliver powerful, elegant graphics to drench your senses, immersing you in unparalleled worlds of visual effects for the ultimate PC experience.
