In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 630M v2 are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce 710M.

The GT 630M has a 25 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GeForce 710M. This results in the GT 630M providing 0.4 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 GT 630M has a 25 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 710M, but the GeForce 710M has 4 more Render Output Units than the GT 630M. As a result, the GeForce 710M exhibits a 3 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GT 630M. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce 710M was released less than a year after the GT 630M, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GT 630M has 1024 MB more video memory than the GeForce 710M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GT 630M also has superior memory performance overall.

The GT 630M has 43.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 710M, which means that the memory performance of the GT 630M is noticeably better than the GeForce 710M.

Both the GeForce GT 630M v2 and the GeForce 710M have 96 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the GT 630M is 154 and by the GeForce 710M is 149. Knowing that the shader performance of the GT 630M is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The GeForce 710M transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 630M. This means that the GeForce 710M is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 630M.

The GeForce GT 630M v2 requires 33 Watts to run and the GeForce 710M requires 15 Watts. The GT 630M requires 18 Watts more than the GeForce 710M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GT 630M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce 710M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 630M v2 is a fast-middle-class Mobile 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 GF108 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 96 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 800MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, 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 900MHz.

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

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 33W, it is suited for 15" or larger laptops.

Performance
GeForce GT 630M v2 is essentially a fast GeForce GT 555M v2.
Gaming benchmarks put its performance identical to a desktop GeForce GT 440.

System Suggestions
We recommend a decent processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 630M v2.
