In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6800 XT are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 7600 GS Asus Silent Edition.

The 7600 GS was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 6800 XT, and so the 7600 GS is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 6800 XT.

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 7600 GS Asus Silent Edition and the GeForce 6800 XT have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The 7600 GS has 14.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 6800 XT, which means that the memory performance of the 7600 GS is slightly better than the GeForce 6800 XT.

Both the GeForce 7600 GS Asus Silent Edition and the GeForce 6800 XT have 12 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the 7600 GS is 5 and by the GeForce 6800 XT is 4. Knowing that the shader performance of the 7600 GS is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The GeForce 7600 GS Asus Silent Edition requires 27 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 6800 XT. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the 7600 GS.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce 7600 GS Asus Silent Edition is a special edition of the GeForce 7600 GS. See the page of the standard edition for more information about it.
The biggest feature is the reduced noise that went from average to almost none and according to Asus the "Splendid video enhancement technology detects the activation and usage of video applications and automatically optimizes image quality for the best visual results". No gaming optimizations were included and so the performance, when gaming, is exactly like the standard edition.
The groundbreaking new NVIDIA GeForce 6800 graphics processing units (GPUs) and their revolutionary technologies power worlds where reality and fantasy meet; worlds in which new standards are set for visual realism and quality, performance, and video functionality. The GeForce 6800 GPUs deliver powerful, elegant graphics to drench your senses, immersing you in unparalleled worlds of visual effects for the ultimate PC experience.
