In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition are marginally better than the AMD Radeon X1950 GT.

The GT 220 was released over a year more recently than the Radeon X1950 GT, and so the GT 220 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Radeon X1950 GT.

The GT 220 has 768 MB more video memory than the Radeon X1950 GT, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the Radeon X1950 GT has superior memory performance.

The Radeon X1950 GT has 32 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 220, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon X1950 GT is noticeably better than the GT 220.

The GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition has 48 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon X1950 GT has 36. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 220 is 60 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon X1950 GT is 12. The GT 220 having 48 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Radeon X1950 GT performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition requires 58 Watts to run and the Radeon X1950 GT requires 57 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 220. The GT 220 requires 1 Watts more than the Radeon X1950 GT to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GT 220 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon X1950 GT.

GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's Entry-Level GeForce GT 220 v2, created by Galaxy.

Overclock: Central Unit
None.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock is now of 400MHz instead of 790MHz because the GPU Acesses a GDDR2 Frame Buffer, instead of GDDR3.

Performance
Performance is Lower than the Reference GeForce GT 220 v2, especially at Higher Resolutions.
Radeon X1950 GT is a high-end GPU based on the 80nm variant of the R500 architecture.
It's based on the R570 Core and offers 36 Pixel Shaders, 12 TMUs and 12 ROPs, on a 256-bit of standard GDDR3. The central unit runs at 500MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 600MHz.
Its therefore a slightly underclocked Radeon X1900 GT which should perform slightly wosr while heating less, thanks to the smaller technology.
Most of today's games might be playable at medium settings although the low preset will have to suffice on some. As it's not based on a Shader-Unified architecture, both DirectX 10 & 11 games aren't supported.
