In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6600 GT are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce 3 Ti 500.

The GeForce 6600 GT was released over three years more recently than the 3 Ti, and so the GeForce 6600 GT is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the 3 Ti 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 GeForce 3 Ti 500 and the GeForce 6600 GT have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce 6600 GT has 11.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 3 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 6600 GT is slightly better than the 3 Ti.

The GeForce 3 Ti 500 has 4 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6600 GT has 11. However, the actual shader performance of the 3 Ti 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 3 Ti.

The GeForce 6600 GT requires 48 Watts to run but there is no entry for the 3 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce 3 Ti 500 is a very old GPU part of the GeForce 3 Series released by NVIDIA in 2001.
It only supports DirectX up to 8.1 so even DirectX 9 games are most likely unplayable.
That being said, the 128MB video memory and very low core clock doom its performance from the start. Therefore, almost all today's games are unplayable, even at the lowest settings.
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.
