In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6500 are massively better than the AMD Radeon RX Vega Core 4GB.

The RX Vega was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 6500, and so the RX Vega is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 6500 when running the latest games.

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 RX Vega has 3840 MB more video memory than the GeForce 6500, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RX Vega also has superior memory performance overall.

The RX Vega has 250.7 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 6500, which means that the memory performance of the RX Vega is massively better than the GeForce 6500.

The Radeon RX Vega Core 4GB has 4096 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6500 has 4. However, the actual shader performance of the RX Vega is 3994 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6500 is 1. The RX Vega having 3993 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX Vega delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 6500.

The Radeon RX Vega Core 4GB requires 275 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 6500. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the RX Vega.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon RX Vega Core 4GB is an Enthusiast gaming Graphics Card based on the Fourth (4.0) Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
The Vega 10 Pro GPU offers support for HBM-2 Memory, DirectX 12.0 and Open GL 4.5. While the Radeon RX Vega Eclipse aqnd Nova use a slightly faster Vega 10 XT GPU, the Radeon RX Vega Core will still likely offer performance faster than a GeForce GTX 1070. The Vega 10 Pro GPU has 64 Compute Units activated, offering 4096 Shader Processing Units, 256 TMUs and 64 ROPs. This puts its performance roughly in line with $350 GeForce GTX 1070.

GPU
The Central Unit is clocked at 1500MHz.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with stacked HBM-2 Memory and accesses the Frame Buffer through a 2048-bit memory interface.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 4GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
However,the GPU itself is aimed for 1440p Gaming. The RX Vega Core's performance at this resolution should be excellent, however users with 4K displays will experience severe performance bottlenecks

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 275W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with two available 8-pin connectors.

Performance
Radeon RX Vega Core 4GB competes with the GeForce GTX 1070 8GB, which is available for $349.
The GeForce GTX 1070 may have the edge in performance at higher resolutions.
System Suggestions
Radeon RX Vega Core 4GB HBM2 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560 x1440 (1440p). We recommend a Very Strong Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.is
The NVIDIA GeForce 6500 and 6200 graphics processing units (GPUs) featuring NVIDIA TurboCache technology take full advantage of the PCI Express bus to deliver the turbocharged system performance you need to play all the hottest games and applications.
