In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon X1050 XT are massively better than the Nvidia Riva TNT2 Pro.

The X1050 XT was released over three years more recently than the Riva TNT2 Pro, and so the X1050 XT is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Riva TNT2 Pro when running the latest games.

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 X1050 XT has 96 MB more video memory than the Riva TNT2 Pro, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The Riva TNT2 Pro has 1.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the X1050 XT, which means that the memory performance of the Riva TNT2 Pro is marginally better than the X1050 XT.

The Radeon X1050 XT has 8 Shader Processing Units and the Riva TNT2 Pro has 2. However, the actual shader performance of the X1050 XT is 2 and the actual shader performance of the Riva TNT2 Pro is 0. The X1050 XT having 2 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the X1050 XT delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Riva TNT2 Pro.

The Radeon X1050 XT requires 24 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Riva TNT2 Pro.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon X1050 XT is an entry-level GFX based on the 110nm variant of the R400 architecture.
It's based on the RV410 Core and offers 8 Pixel Shaders, 8 TMUs and 8 ROPs, on a 64-bit of standard DDR. The central unit runs at 400MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 200MHz. Expect a TDP of up to 24 Watt.
Radeon X1050 XT is not related to the rest of the X1000 Series GPUs due to being based on the R400 architecture and not on the R500. It's instead a slightly lower clocked X700 and should offer similar performance. Its performance is relatively limited - even for DirectX 9 based games. As it's not based on a Shader-Unified architecture, both DirectX 10 & 11 games aren't supported.
The RIVA TNT2 was a graphics processing unit manufactured by Nvidia starting in early 1999. The chip is codenamed "NV5" because it is the 5th graphics chip design by Nvidia, succeeding the RIVA TNT (NV4). RIVA is an acronym for Real-time Interactive Video and Animation accelerator. The "TNT" suffix refers to the chip's ability to work on two texels at once (TwiN Texel). Nvidia removed RIVA from the name later in the chip's lifetime.
