In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition are significantly better than the AMD Radeon X800 XT Platinum.

The GT 430 was released over three years more recently than the X800 XT, and so the GT 430 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the X800 XT when running the latest games.

The GT 430 has 768 MB more video memory than the X800 XT, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the X800 XT has superior memory performance.

The X800 XT has 39.7 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 430, which means that the memory performance of the X800 XT is noticeably better than the GT 430.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition has 96 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon X800 XT Platinum has 16. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 430 is 151 and the actual shader performance of the X800 XT is 5. The GT 430 having 146 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the X800 XT performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition requires 49 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon X800 XT Platinum. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 430.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's middle-class GeForce GT 430, created by MSI.

Overclock Out of The Box
The Central Unit is now of 785MHz, instead of 700MHz while the Operating Memory Clock is now of 1000MHz.

Cooling Solution
The reference Cooling System has been replaced by MSI's Dual Fan Cooling System.

Performance
Benchmarks indicate a 6% performance boost over the reference GeForce GT 430.
The Radeon X800 'R430'-based 110 nanometer series was introduced at the end of 2004 along with ATI's new X850 cards. The X800 was designed to replace the position X700 XT failed to secure, with 12 pipelines and a 256-bit RAM bus. The card more than surpassed the 6600GT with performance similar to that of the GeForce 6800. A close relative, the new X800 XL, was positioned to dethrone NVIDIA's GeForce 6800 GT with higher memory speeds and a full 16 pipelines to boost performance. R430 was unable to reach high clock speeds, being mainly designed to reduce the cost per GPU, and so a new top-of-the-line core was still needed. The new high-end R4x0-generation arrived with the X850 series, equipped with various core tweaks for slightly higher performance than the 'R420'-based X800 series. The 'R480'-based X850 line was available in 3 forms: the X850 Pro, the X850 XT, and the X850 XT Platinum Edition, and was built on the reliable high-performance 130 nm Low-K process.
