In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon X800 SE are significantly better than the AMD Radeon X1050.

The Radeon X1050 was released over a year more recently than the Radeon X800 SE, and so the Radeon X1050 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Radeon X800 SE.

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 X800 SE has 128 MB more video memory than the Radeon X1050, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Radeon X800 SE also has superior memory performance overall.

The Radeon X800 SE has 45.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon X1050, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon X800 SE is noticeably better than the Radeon X1050.

The Radeon X800 SE has 12 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon X1050 has 4. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon X800 SE is 3 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon X1050 is 1. The Radeon X800 SE having 2 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon X800 SE delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon X1050.

The Radeon X1050 requires 24 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon X800 SE. 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 Radeon X800 SE.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe 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.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.
