In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 220.

The HD 6670 has a 200 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GeForce GT 220. This results in the HD 6670 providing 4.8 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 HD 6670 has a 200 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GT 220, but the GeForce GT 220 has 8 more Render Output Units than the HD 6670. As a result, the GeForce GT 220 exhibits a 3.2 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the HD 6670. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The HD 6670 was released over a year more recently than the GeForce GT 220, and so the HD 6670 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce GT 220.

The HD 6670 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GeForce GT 220, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GeForce GT 220 has superior memory performance.

The GeForce GT 220 has 23.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 6670, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GT 220 is slightly better than the HD 6670.

The Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition has 480 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 220 has 48. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 6670 is 192 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 220 is 72. The HD 6670 having 120 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce GT 220 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The HD 6670 transistor size technology is 25 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GT 220. This means that the HD 6670 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GT 220.

The Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition requires 66 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 220 requires 58 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 6670 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GT 220. The HD 6670 requires 8 Watts more than the GeForce GT 220 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the HD 6670 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce GT 220.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition is a special edition of AMD's fast-middle-class Radeon HD 6670 v2, created by MSI.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit runs at the same speed.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock runs at 667MHz and the Frame Buffer was raised to 2GB. This is a gimmick and in no way benefits the GPU.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling System remains the same.

Without Overclocking Out of The Box, Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition is as fast as the reference Radeon HD 6670 v2.
GeForce GT 220 is a Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the Tesla Architecture.

Tesla was NVIDIA's First Unified Shader Architecture.

It equips a GPU Codenamed G92 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 48 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 600MHz.

The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of GDDR3, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 700MHz.

DirectX 10.0 Support (10.0 Hardware Default) and support for NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology, Dual-stream Hardware Acceleration, PhysX, CUDA, HybridPower and other technologies.

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

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 58W, it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for Power meaning no extra connectors are required.

Gaming benchmarks put its performance considerably above a Radeon HD 4550, meaning it is only slightly slower than the more recent Fermi GeForce GT 430.
