In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 6530D are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce 6800 Ultra.

The Radeon HD 6530D was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 6800 Ultra, and so the Radeon HD 6530D 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 Radeon HD 6530D has 256 MB more video memory than the GeForce 6800 Ultra, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The GeForce 6800 Ultra has 5.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 6530D, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 6800 Ultra is marginally better than the Radeon HD 6530D.

The Radeon HD 6530D has 320 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6800 Ultra has 22. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 6530D is 92 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6800 Ultra is 9. The Radeon HD 6530D having 83 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce 6800 Ultra performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon HD 6530D requires 64 Watts to run and the GeForce 6800 Ultra requires 124 Watts. The GeForce 6800 Ultra requires 60 Watts more than the Radeon HD 6530D 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 Radeon HD 6530D.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 6530D is an integrated GPU in one of AMD's processors. It's part of the high-end class GPUS of this Series. It supports DirectX 11 and uses system memory and it only supports DDR3-1866 memory type.
The performance, is obviously, limited but demanding games should still be playable from low to medium settings (depending on the resolution + DirectX version used), while very demanding games might not run at all or might require very reduced settings. All in all, even though it supports DirectX 11, most likely games that use it are unplayable to the lowest settings or only playable on the lowest settings because every game out there using DirectX 11 is either demanding or very demanding.
The groundbreaking new NVIDIA GeForce 6800 graphics processing units (GPUs) and their revolutionary technologies power worlds where reality and fantasy meet; worlds in which new standards are set for visual realism and quality, performance, and video functionality. The GeForce 6800 GPUs deliver powerful, elegant graphics to drench your senses, immersing you in unparalleled worlds of visual effects for the ultimate PC experience.
