In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6600 LE are massively better than the Nvidia Riva TNT2 Ultra.

The GeForce 6600 LE was released over three years more recently than the Riva TNT2 Ultra, and so the GeForce 6600 LE is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Riva TNT2 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 GeForce 6600 LE has 224 MB more video memory than the Riva TNT2 Ultra, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce 6600 LE also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce 6600 LE has 0.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Riva TNT2 Ultra, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 6600 LE is marginally better than the Riva TNT2 Ultra.

The Riva TNT2 Ultra has 2 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6600 LE has 7. However, the actual shader performance of the Riva TNT2 Ultra is 0 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6600 LE is 2. The GeForce 6600 LE having 2 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 6600 LE delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Riva TNT2 Ultra.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe RIVA TNT2 was a graphics processing unit manufactured by Nvidia starting in early 1999. The chip is codenamed "NV5" because it is the 5th graphics chip design by Nvidia, succeeding the RIVA TNT (NV4). RIVA is an acronym for Real-time Interactive Video and Animation accelerator. The "TNT" suffix refers to the chip's ability to work on two texels at once (TwiN Texel). Nvidia removed RIVA from the name later in the chip's lifetime.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.
