In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon 9500 are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 6150 SE 256MB.

The 6150 SE was released over three years more recently than the Radeon 9500, 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 Radeon 9500 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 Radeon 9500, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The Radeon 9500 has 4.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 6150 SE, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon 9500 is marginally better than the 6150 SE.

The Radeon 9500 has 4 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6150 SE 256MB has 2. 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 Radeon R300 (introduced August 2002) is the third generation of Radeon graphics chips from ATI Technologies. The line features 3D acceleration based upon Direct3D 9.0 and OpenGL 2.0, a major improvement in features and performance compared to the preceding Radeon R200 design. R300 was the first fully Direct3D 9-capable consumer graphics chip. The processors also include 2D GUI acceleration, video acceleration, and multiple display outputs. R300 refers to the development codename of the initially released GPU of the generation. R300 and its derivatives would form the basis for ATI's consumer and professional product lines for over 3 years. The integrated graphics processor based upon R300 is called Xpress 200.The 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.
