In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6600 GT are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 9300 GE.

The GeForce 9300 GE was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 6600 GT, and so the GeForce 9300 GE is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 6600 GT 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 9300 GE has 384 MB more video memory than the GeForce 6600 GT, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GeForce 6600 GT has superior memory performance.

The GeForce 6600 GT has 7.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 9300 GE, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 6600 GT is marginally better than the GeForce 9300 GE.

The GeForce 9300 GE has 8 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6600 GT has 11. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 9300 GE is 4 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6600 GT is 6. The GeForce 6600 GT having 2 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 6600 GT delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 9300 GE.

The GeForce 6600 GT requires 48 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 9300 GE. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce 9300 GE.

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. Supercharge your gaming with the power of an NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GPU. The NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GPUs deliver best-in-class performance and advanced visual effects for next-generation games. The only GPU in its class with support for Microsoft DirectX 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 and with support for PCI Express, the GeForce 6600 delivers ultra-realistic effects, unmatched features, and rock-solid stability so you can play your game the way itís meant to be played.
