In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon 9250 are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 6150 SE nForce 430.

The 6150 SE was released over a year more recently than the Radeon 9250, and so the 6150 SE is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Radeon 9250.

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 6150 SE has 128 MB more video memory than the Radeon 9250, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The Radeon 9250 has 3.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 6150 SE, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon 9250 is marginally better than the 6150 SE.

The GeForce 6150 SE nForce 430 has 2 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon 9250 has 4. 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 ReviewThis GPU is the same as
GeForce 6150 SE / nForce 430 is an integrated GPU (GeForce 6150 SE, in this case) in a NVIDIA motherboard (nForce 430, in this case).
The fact it shares system RAM (up to 256 MB), the low core-clock frequency and a few more factors, lead to a very poor performance, not recommended for today's games.
Therefore, only old games can be played at high settings with decent FPS while today's demanding games are unplayable.
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.
