In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD FireGL V3400 are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce 6800 XT.

The FireGL V3400 was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 6800 XT, and so the FireGL V3400 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.

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 GeForce 6800 XT has 128 MB more video memory than the FireGL V3400, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the FireGL V3400 has superior memory performance.

The FireGL V3400 has 4.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 6800 XT, which means that the memory performance of the FireGL V3400 is marginally better than the GeForce 6800 XT.

The FireGL V3400 has 5 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6800 XT has 12. However, the actual shader performance of the FireGL V3400 is 2 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6800 XT is 4. The GeForce 6800 XT having 2 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the FireGL V3400 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the FireGL V3400.

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 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.
