In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD FireGL 8800 are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 6200 TurboCache.

The GeForce 6200 TurboCache was released over three years more recently than the FireGL 8800, and so the GeForce 6200 TurboCache is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the FireGL 8800 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 FireGL 8800 and the GeForce 6200 TurboCache have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce 6200 TurboCache has 0.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the FireGL 8800, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 6200 TurboCache is marginally better than the FireGL 8800.

The FireGL 8800 has 2 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6200 TurboCache has 7. However, the actual shader performance of the FireGL 8800 is 0 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6200 TurboCache is 2. The GeForce 6200 TurboCache having 2 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the FireGL 8800 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the FireGL 8800.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe ATI FireGL range of video cards, renamed to FirePro 3D in late 2008, is the series specifically for CAD (Computer Aided Design) and DCC (Digital Content Creation) software, usually found in workstations. The FireGL line is designed for multimedia content creation programs, such as 3DS Max, and mechanical engineering design software such as Solidworks, whereas Radeon counterparts are suited towards video games. FireGL drivers were built with maximum image quality and pixel precision, with CAD specific functionalities such as the recently introduced AutoDetection Technology to tune the parameters inside the driver to achieve maximum performance for predefined list of software. However, because the drivers are also based on the Catalyst drivers made for the Radeon line, it makes them suitable for gaming, at the expense of probable compatibility issues with the very latest games due to the age of the drivers, with FireGL cards in theory pushing more data than their Radeon gaming counterparts.The NVIDIA GeForce 6500 and 6200 graphics processing units (GPUs) featuring NVIDIA TurboCache technology take full advantage of the PCI Express bus to deliver the turbocharged system performance you need to play all the hottest games and applications.
