In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon 8500 Series 64MB are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 6150 SE 256MB.

The 6150 SE was released over three years more recently than the 8500 Series, and so the 6150 SE is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the 8500 Series 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 6150 SE has 192 MB more video memory than the 8500 Series, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The 8500 Series has 8.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 6150 SE, which means that the memory performance of the 8500 Series is marginally better than the 6150 SE.

The GeForce 6150 SE 256MB has 2 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon 8500 Series 64MB 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 ReviewThe NVIDIA GeForce 6500, 6200, 6150 and 6100 GPUs feature a revolutionary design that delivers best-in-class performance on today's hottest games and applications. The only GPUs in their class to support Microsoft DirectX 9.0 Shader Model 3.0, these GPUs power the latest effects without compromising performance. Further, these GPUs include NVIDIA PureVideo to deliver crisp, vibrant video to the PC.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.
