In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 6800 Ultra.

The GT 220 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 6800 Ultra, and so the GT 220 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 6800 Ultra when running the latest games.

The GT 220 has 768 MB more video memory than the GeForce 6800 Ultra, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GeForce 6800 Ultra has superior memory performance.

The GeForce 6800 Ultra has 28.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 220, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 6800 Ultra is slightly better than the GT 220.

The GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition has 48 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6800 Ultra has 22. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 220 is 60 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6800 Ultra is 9. The GT 220 having 51 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce 6800 Ultra performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition requires 58 Watts to run and the GeForce 6800 Ultra requires 124 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 220. The GeForce 6800 Ultra requires 66 Watts more than the GT 220 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce 6800 Ultra may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GT 220.
