In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon X1050 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 9100.

The GeForce 9100 has a 100 MHz higher core clock speed and 4 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon X1050. This results in the GeForce 9100 providing 2.4 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since the GeForce 9100 supports up to DirectX 10.

The GeForce 9100 has a 100 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon X1050 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GeForce 9100 providing 0.4 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce 9100 was released less than a year after the Radeon X1050, 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 Radeon X1050 has 128 MB video memory, but the GeForce 9100 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce 9100 has 16 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon X1050 has 4. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 9100 is 8 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon X1050 is 1. The GeForce 9100 having 7 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Radeon X1050 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce 9100 transistor size technology is 30 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon X1050. This means that the GeForce 9100 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon X1050. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GeForce 9100 should consume less power than the Radeon X1050.

The GeForce 9100 requires 40 Watts to run and the Radeon X1050 requires 24 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Radeon X1050, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the GeForce 9100. The GeForce 9100 requires 16 Watts more than the Radeon X1050 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce 9100 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon X1050.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIt had previously been thought that NVIDIA had decided to drop the G and NV nomenclature for a D (for Desktop) nomenclature on their processors. Following the D is the generation number and the target market indicator. NVIDIA's official designations for target markets include Mainstream, Performance, and Enthusiast. For example, the D9E indicates a 9th generation Desktop GeForce video card for the Enthusiast market[1]. However, NVIDIA has actually forked their codenames into those of graphics processors, and those of graphics cards. The GPU cores have kept the prefix 'G' and future versions will include the prefix 'GT'; whereas the actual cards are now codenamed as D, generation number and target market. 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.
