In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon X1300 256MB are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 6200 TurboCache.

The Radeon X1300 256MB was released less than a year after the GeForce 6200 TurboCache, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance 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 Radeon X1300 256MB has 128 MB more video memory than the GeForce 6200 TurboCache, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Radeon X1300 256MB also has superior memory performance overall.

The Radeon X1300 256MB has 1.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 6200 TurboCache, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon X1300 256MB is marginally better than the GeForce 6200 TurboCache.

The Radeon X1300 256MB has 4 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6200 TurboCache has 7. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon X1300 256MB is 1 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6200 TurboCache is 2. The GeForce 6200 TurboCache having 1 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Radeon X1300 256MB performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the Radeon X1300 256MB.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon X1300 256MB is an entry-level GPU based on the 90nm variant of the R500 architecture.
It's based on the RV515 Core and offers 4 Pixel Shaders, 4 TMUs and 4 ROPs, on a 128-bit of standard DDR. The central unit runs at 450MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 250MHz.
Radeon X1300 is not much more powerful than R300 and R400 based Radeon X1050 GPUs and so its performance is relatively limited - even for DirectX 9 based games. As it's not based on a Shader-Unified architecture, both DirectX 10 & 11 games aren't supported.
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.
