In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 620 are marginally better than the Intel HD Graphics 4200 Desktop.

The GeForce GT 620 has a 500 MHz higher core clock speed and 12 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics 4200. This results in the GeForce GT 620 providing 10.4 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GeForce GT 620 has a 500 MHz higher core clock speed and 2 more Render Output Units than the Graphics 4200. This results in the GeForce GT 620 providing 2.4 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Graphics 4200 was released over a year more recently than the GeForce GT 620, and so the Graphics 4200 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce GT 620.

The GeForce GT 620 has 1024 MB video memory, but the Graphics 4200 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics 4200 Desktop has 20 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 620 has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics 4200 is 83 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 620 is 134. The GeForce GT 620 having 51 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Graphics 4200 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Graphics 4200 transistor size technology is 18 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GT 620. This means that the Graphics 4200 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GT 620. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Graphics 4200 should consume less power than the GeForce GT 620.

The HD Graphics 4200 Desktop requires 20 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 620 requires 49 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GT 620, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the Graphics 4200. The GeForce GT 620 requires 29 Watts more than the Graphics 4200 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce GT 620 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Graphics 4200.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel HD Graphics 4200 Mobile are integrated graphics in the ULV Haswell Desktop processors.
Their performance depends on the processor they are integrated on, as the latter defines the Base and Boost Clock, as well as on the SYSTEM RAM, which defines the operating memory clock, and whether the GPU accesses a 64-bit or 128-bit memory interface.
Best case scenario, the Intel HD Graphics 4200 Desktop perform slightly above Intel HD 4000 Graphics, though some variants actually perform worse and so most modern demanding games will have to be played with the lowest settings, while a few aren't even playable.
Overview
GeForce GT 620 is an Entry-Level Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Fermi Architecture.

Architecture
The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Fermi GF108-100-KB-A1 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 96 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 700MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 500MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 49W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance is somewhat better than Radeon HD 7470.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Celeron) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 620.
