In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6600 GT are significantly better than the AMD Radeon X1300 256MB.

The Radeon X1300 256MB was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 6600 GT, and so the Radeon X1300 256MB is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 6600 GT.

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 6600 GT, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GeForce 6600 GT has superior memory performance.

The GeForce 6600 GT has 11.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon X1300 256MB, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 6600 GT is slightly better than the Radeon X1300 256MB.

The Radeon X1300 256MB has 4 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6600 GT has 11. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon X1300 256MB is 1 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6600 GT is 6. The GeForce 6600 GT having 5 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 6600 GT delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon X1300 256MB.

The GeForce 6600 GT requires 48 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon X1300 256MB. 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.
Supercharge your gaming with the power of an NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GPU. The NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GPUs deliver best-in-class performance and advanced visual effects for next-generation games. The only GPU in its class with support for Microsoft DirectX 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 and with support for PCI Express, the GeForce 6600 delivers ultra-realistic effects, unmatched features, and rock-solid stability so you can play your game the way itís meant to be played.
