In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 3 Ti 500 are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 7050.

The GeForce 7050 was released over three years more recently than the 3 Ti, and so the GeForce 7050 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the 3 Ti 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 3 Ti 500 and the GeForce 7050 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce 7050 has 1.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 3 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 7050 is marginally better than the 3 Ti.

The GeForce 3 Ti 500 has 4 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 7050 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 ReviewGeForce 3 Ti 500 is a very old GPU part of the GeForce 3 Series released by NVIDIA in 2001.
It only supports DirectX up to 8.1 so even DirectX 9 games are most likely unplayable.
That being said, the 128MB video memory and very low core clock doom its performance from the start. Therefore, almost all today's games are unplayable, even at the lowest settings.
The GeForce experience is more affordable than ever with NVIDIA GeForce 7 Series motherboard GPUs, now for Intel-based PCs. *Immersive experiences on the latest applications and games. *Enjoy Windows Aero features such as Flip 3D, taskbar preview and translucent windows for a more productive computing experience. *Support for a full range of Intel CPUs (including Core™ 2, Pentium™ and Celeron™ CPU families), DDR2-800 memory and integrated HDMI or DVI display output.
