In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6500 are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon Xpress 1150.

The Radeon Xpress 1150 was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 6500, and so the Radeon Xpress 1150 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 6500.

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 6500 has 256 MB video memory, but the Radeon Xpress 1150 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon Xpress 1150 has 2 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6500 has 4. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon Xpress 1150 is 0 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6500 is 1. The GeForce 6500 having 1 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 6500 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon Xpress 1150.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewVery Old Discontinued Graphics Card. Even Windows can be considered unplayable.The NVIDIA GeForce 6500 and 6200 graphics processing units (GPUs) featuring NVIDIA TurboCache technology take full advantage of the PCI Express bus to deliver the turbocharged system performance you need to play all the hottest games and applications.
