In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce2 Ultra are very slightly better than the AMD Radeon 9250.

The Radeon 9250 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce2 Ultra, and so the Radeon 9250 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce2 Ultra 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 9250 has 64 MB more video memory than the GeForce2 Ultra, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GeForce2 Ultra has superior memory performance.

The GeForce2 Ultra has 0.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon 9250, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce2 Ultra is marginally better than the Radeon 9250.

Both the GeForce2 Ultra and the Radeon 9250 have 4 Shader Processing Units. The two GPUs are based on different architectures, but deliver an equivalent shader performance. To compare, we must continue to look at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, we sadly do not have enough data in this area to complete the comparison.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce2 Ultra is part of the GeForce2 Series released by NVIDIA in 2000/2001. With very few dedicated memory and only DirectX 7.0 (and less) support, even games from 2002 will require reduced settings. Therefore, it can't play today's current games.The Radeon R200 is the second generation of Radeon graphics chips from ATI Technologies. The architecture features 3D acceleration based upon Microsoft Direct3D 8.0 and OpenGL 1.3, a major improvement in features and performance compared to the preceding Radeon R100 design. The GPU also includes 2D GUI acceleration, video acceleration, and multiple display outputs. 'R200' refers to the development codename of the initially released GPU of the generation. It is the basis for a variety of other succeeding products.
