In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6800 Ultra are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon R5 220.

The Radeon R5 220 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 6800 Ultra, and so the Radeon R5 220 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 6800 Ultra when running the latest games.

The Radeon R5 220 has 768 MB more video memory than the GeForce 6800 Ultra, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GeForce 6800 Ultra has superior memory performance.

The GeForce 6800 Ultra has 26.7 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon R5 220, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 6800 Ultra is slightly better than the Radeon R5 220.

The Radeon R5 220 has 80 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6800 Ultra has 22. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R5 220 is 26 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6800 Ultra is 9. The Radeon R5 220 having 17 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce 6800 Ultra performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon R5 220 requires 19 Watts to run and the GeForce 6800 Ultra requires 124 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 250 Watts for the Radeon R5 220. The GeForce 6800 Ultra requires 105 Watts more than the Radeon R5 220 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce 6800 Ultra may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Radeon R5 220.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon R5 220 is an OEM only, entry-level Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Terascale Architecture.

Architecture
Terascale was AMD's first Unified Shader Architecture. In addition to being manufactured with a 40nm Technology, against the 55nm of previous Graphics Cards, it supports DirectX 10 and the Shaders now called Shader Processing Units have been redesigned and do all the Graphical work of Pixel and Vertex Shaders.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Cedar PRO which has 1 Compute Units activated and thus offers 80 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit Operates at 650MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of GDDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The memory clock operates at 800MHz. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Eyefinity, Stream Acceleration, PowerPlay and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 18W, it requires at least a 250W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Radeon R5 220 is a direct re-brand of Radeon HD 5450.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance is extremely limited and even the older GeForce GT 220 is still faster.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Celeron) and 2GB of RAM for a system with Radeon R5 220.
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.
