In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6600 GT are very slightly better than the AMD Radeon X1300 XT .

The X1300 XT was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 6600 GT, and so the X1300 XT 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 X1300 XT has 128 MB more video memory than the GeForce 6600 GT, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GeForce 6600 GT has superior memory performance.

The GeForce 6600 GT has 2.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the X1300 XT, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 6600 GT is marginally better than the X1300 XT.

The Radeon X1300 XT has 12 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6600 GT has 11. However, the actual shader performance of the X1300 XT is 4 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6600 GT is 6. The GeForce 6600 GT having 2 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 X1300 XT.

The Radeon X1300 XT requires 22 Watts to run and the GeForce 6600 GT requires 48 Watts. The GeForce 6600 GT requires 26 Watts more than the X1300 XT 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 X1300 XT.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon X1300 XT is an entry-level GPU based on the 90nm variant of the R500 architecture.
It's based on the RV530 Core and offers 12 Pixel Shaders, 4 TMUs and 4 ROPs, on a 128-bit of standard DDR2. The central unit runs at 500MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 400MHz.
Despite featuring more Pixel and Vertex Shaders, Radeon X1300 XT consumes less power than X1300 PRO due to being equipped with energy efficient DDR2 (against DDR X1300 PRO) and featuring a lower clocked central unit.
Still, its performance is quite limited and so today's modern games are only playable at the lowest settings or unplayable at all. 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.
