Technical specs

General performance parameters such as number of shaders, GPU core base clock and boost clock speeds, manufacturing process, texturing and calculation speed. These parameters indirectly speak of performance, but for precise assessment you have to consider their benchmark and gaming test results. Note that power consumption of some graphics cards can well exceed their nominal TDP, especially when overclocked.

Competitors of T600 from AMD

We believe that the nearest equivalent to T600 from AMD is Radeon HD 7850.

Here are some closest AMD rivals to T600:

Advantages of ATI Radeon X850 XT AGP

Wider memory bus (256 vs 128 bit)

Advantages of NVIDIA T600

Much newer (6 May 2021 vs 28 February 2005)

Cheaper ($69 vs $240)

Higher memory bandwidth (160 vs 34.56 GB/s)

Finer manufacturing process technology (12 vs 130 nm)

Lower power consumption (40W vs 69W), meaning that the rival with higher TDP might require a better cooler or other thermal solution.

So, which one is the better GPU?

Technical City couldn't decide between ATI Radeon X850 XT AGP and NVIDIA T600. We've got no test results to judge.
