In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 5670 1GB DDR3 are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition.

The GT 430 has a 10 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 5670, but the HD 5670 has 4 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 430. As a result, the HD 5670 exhibits a 2.9 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GT 430. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GT 430 has a 10 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 5670, but the HD 5670 has 4 more Render Output Units than the GT 430. As a result, the HD 5670 exhibits a 3.1 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GT 430. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GT 430 was released less than a year after the HD 5670, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition and the Radeon HD 5670 1GB DDR3 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GT 430 has 6.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 5670, which means that the memory performance of the GT 430 is marginally better than the HD 5670.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition has 96 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 5670 1GB DDR3 has 400. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 430 is 151 and the actual shader performance of the HD 5670 is 202. The HD 5670 having 51 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 5670 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 430.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition requires 49 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 5670 1GB DDR3 requires 64 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 430 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 5670. The HD 5670 requires 15 Watts more than the GT 430 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the HD 5670 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GT 430.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's middle-class GeForce GT 430, created by MSI.

Overclock Out of The Box
The Central Unit is now of 785MHz, instead of 700MHz while the Operating Memory Clock is now of 1000MHz.

Cooling Solution
The reference Cooling System has been replaced by MSI's Dual Fan Cooling System.

Performance
Benchmarks indicate a 6% performance boost over the reference GeForce GT 430.
Radeon HD 5670 1GB DDR3 is one of the many variants of the Radeon HD 5670.
This version is equipped with 1GB of standard DDR3. Compared to the Radeon HD 5670 1GB GDDR5 the memory bandwidth is less than half because of the memory type used and because the memory clock is clocked at 800MHz instead of 1000Mhz.
The performance is considerably lower and the low memory bandwidth might become a bottleneck for the 1GB of video memory.
Therefore, modern demanding games like Skyrim V can be played smoothly at high settings but not paired with image improving techniques, such as AA and Tesselation.
