In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce FX 5900 Ultra are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 6600 LE.

The GeForce 6600 LE was released less than a year after the FX 5900, 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 GeForce 6600 LE and the GeForce FX 5900 Ultra have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The FX 5900 has 10.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 6600 LE, which means that the memory performance of the FX 5900 is slightly better than the GeForce 6600 LE.

The GeForce 6600 LE has 7 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce FX 5900 Ultra 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.

The GeForce FX 5900 Ultra requires 59 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 6600 LE.
