In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 7650 GS are significantly better than the AMD Radeon X1050.

The Radeon X1050 was released less than a year after the GeForce 7650 GS, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance 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 GeForce 7650 GS and the Radeon X1050 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce 7650 GS has 7.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon X1050, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 7650 GS is marginally better than the Radeon X1050.

The Radeon X1050 has 4 Shader Processing Units but the GeForce 7650 GS does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon X1050 requires 24 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 7650 GS. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the GeForce 7650 GS and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Radeon X1050. The GeForce 7650 GS has been recommended a PSU with 50 Watts more than the Radeon X1050. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce 7650 GS may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Radeon X1050.

GPU Mini Review

Mini Review Nvidia GeForce 7650 GS is a powerful Mid-Range level graphics card. This card can handle games like, Batman: Arkham City, Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, The Elder Scrolls V:Skyrim on low in a pretty smooth rate. Overall this card is a great. Recommended for a non-hardcore gamer.Radeon X1050 is an entry-level GFX based on the 110nm variant of the R300 architecture.
It's based on the RV370 Core and offers 4 Pixel Shaders, 4 TMUs and 4 ROPs, on a 64-bit of standard DDR2. The central unit runs at 400MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 333MHz. Expect a TDP of up to 24 Watt.
Radeon X1050 is not related to the rest of the X1000 Series GPUs due to being based on the R300 architecture and not on the R500. 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.
