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

The GeForce 6600 LE was released over three years more recently than the Riva TNT, 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 TNT 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 240 MB more video memory than the Riva TNT, 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 1.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Riva TNT, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 6600 LE is marginally better than the Riva TNT.

The Riva TNT has 2 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6600 LE has 7. However, the actual shader performance of the Riva TNT 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 TNT.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe RIVA TNT, codenamed NV4, is a 2D, video, and 3D graphics accelerator chip for PCs that was manufactured by Nvidia. It was released in mid 1998 and cemented Nvidia's reputation as a worthy rival within the developing consumer 3D graphics adapter industry. The first RIVA TNT based card released on June 15, 1998 by STB: Velocity 4400. 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).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.
