In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 4350 1GB are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce 6800 XT.

The HD 4350 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 6800 XT, and so the HD 4350 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 6800 XT 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 HD 4350 has 768 MB more video memory than the GeForce 6800 XT, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the HD 4350 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce 6800 XT has 3.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 4350, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 6800 XT is marginally better than the HD 4350.

The Radeon HD 4350 1GB has 80 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6800 XT has 12. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 4350 is 34 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6800 XT is 4. The HD 4350 having 30 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 4350 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 6800 XT.

The Radeon HD 4350 1GB requires 20 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 6800 XT. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the HD 4350.
