In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD FireGL V3300 are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 6150 SE 256MB.

The 6150 SE was released less than a year after the FireGL V3300, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance 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 128 MB more video memory than the FireGL V3300, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The FireGL V3300 has 6.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 6150 SE, which means that the memory performance of the FireGL V3300 is marginally better than the 6150 SE.

Both the GeForce 6150 SE 256MB and the FireGL V3300 have 2 Shader Processing Units. 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.

We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the FireGL V3300, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the 6150 SE.

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 FireGL line is designed for multimedia content creation programs, such as 3DS Max, mechanical engineering design software such as Solidworks, and civil engineering architectural software such as Chief Architect, whereas Radeon counterparts are suited towards video games. FireGL drivers were built with maximum image quality and pixel precision, with CAD specific functionalities such as the recently introduced AutoDetection Technology to tune the parameters inside the driver to achieve maximum performance for predefined list of software. However, because the drivers are also based on the Catalyst drivers made for the Radeon line, it makes them suitable for gaming, at the expense of probable compatibility issues with the very latest games due to the age of the drivers, with FireGL cards in theory pushing more data than their Radeon gaming counterparts
The ATI FireGL range of video cards, renamed to FirePro 3D in late 2008, is the series specifically for CAD (Computer Aided Design) and DCC (Digital Content Creation) software, usually found in workstations.
