In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition are significantly better than the AMD FireGL V5600.

The GT 220 was released over a year more recently than the FireGL V5600, 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 FireGL V5600.

The GT 220 has 512 MB more video memory than the FireGL V5600, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the FireGL V5600 has superior memory performance.

The FireGL V5600 has 28.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 220, which means that the memory performance of the FireGL V5600 is slightly better than the GT 220.

The GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition has 48 Shader Processing Units and the FireGL V5600 has 120. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 220 is 60 and the actual shader performance of the FireGL V5600 is 62. The FireGL V5600 having 2 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the FireGL V5600 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 220.

The GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition requires 58 Watts to run but there is no entry for the FireGL V5600. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 220 and a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the FireGL V5600. The FireGL V5600 has been recommended a PSU with 50 Watts more than the GT 220. The difference is significant enough that the FireGL V5600 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GT 220.

Performance
Performance is Lower than the Reference GeForce GT 220 v2, especially at Higher Resolutions.
The ATI FireGL range of video cards, renamed to FirePro 3D in late 2008, is the series specifically for CAD (Computer Aided Design) and DCC (Digital Content Creation) software, usually found in workstations. The FireGL line is designed for multimedia content creation programs, such as 3DS Max, and mechanical engineering design software such as Solidworks, whereas Radeon counterparts are suited towards video games. FireGL drivers were built with maximum image quality and pixel precision, with CAD specific functionalities such as the recently introduced AutoDetection Technology to tune the parameters inside the driver to achieve maximum performance for predefined list of software. However, because the drivers are also based on the Catalyst drivers made for the Radeon line, it makes them suitable for gaming, at the expense of probable compatibility issues with the very latest games due to the age of the drivers, with FireGL cards in theory pushing more data than their Radeon gaming counterparts.
