In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon Xpress 1200 Series are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 2060 3GB GDDR5.

The GTX 2060 was released over three years more recently than the Xpress 1200, and so the GTX 2060 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Xpress 1200 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 GTX 2060 has 3072 MB video memory, but the Xpress 1200 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce GTX 2060 3GB GDDR5 has 1920 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon Xpress 1200 Series has 4. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 2060 is 3226 and the actual shader performance of the Xpress 1200 is 1. The GTX 2060 having 3225 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 2060 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Xpress 1200.

The GeForce GTX 2060 3GB GDDR5 requires 150 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon Xpress 1200 Series. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 2060.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR5 is a mid-range GeForce 20 Series graphics card and considered a great price to performance graphics card based on the Turing architecture. Architecture The Turing architecture represents a process shrink down to 12nm compared to 14nm Pascal. Unlike the RTX series, the GTX series does not support real-time ray-tracing. The GeForce GTX 2060 3GB GDDR5 excels at 1080p screen resolution. GPU It equips a Turing GPU codenamed TU106 which has 1920 Shader Processing Units, 120 TMUs and 47 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1365 MHz and goes up to 1680 MHz, in Boost mode. Memory The GPU accesses a 3GB frame buffer of slower GDDR5 memory compared to the GDDR6 model, running through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1500MHz, or 14GHz effective. The limited video memory available means the GTX 2060 3GB will struggle at 1440p resolution. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with an 8-pin power connector. System Suggestions GeForce GTX 2060 3GB GDDR5 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920 x 1080. We recommend a mid-range Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.ATI's 'R520' core (codenamed Fudo) is the foundation for a line of DirectX 9.0c and OpenGL 2.0 3D accelerator X1000 video cards. It is ATI's first major architectural overhaul since the 'R300' core and is highly optimized for Shader Model 3.0. The Radeon X1000 series using the core was introduced on October 5, 2005, and competed primarily against nVidia's GeForce 7000 series. ATI released the successor to the R500 series with the R600 series on May 14, 2007. ATI does not provide official support for any X1000 series cards for Windows 7
