In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6500 are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce 7050.

The GeForce 7050 was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 6500, and so the GeForce 7050 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 128 MB more video memory than the GeForce 7050, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GeForce 7050 has superior memory performance.

The memory bandwidth of the GeForce 7050 and the GeForce 6500 are the same, which means the GeForce 7050 and the GeForce 6500 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

The GeForce 7050 has 2 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6500 has 4. The two GPUs are based on different architectures, but deliver an equivalent shader performance. To compare, we must continue to look at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, we sadly do not have enough data in this area to complete the comparison.
