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 530.

The HD 6670 has a 100 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GT 530. This results in the HD 6670 providing 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 100 MHz higher core clock speed and 4 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GT 530. This results in the HD 6670 providing 3.6 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 GeForce GT 530 was released less than a year after the HD 6670, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The HD 6670 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GeForce GT 530, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GeForce GT 530 has superior memory performance.

The GeForce GT 530 has 7.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 6670, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GT 530 is marginally better than the HD 6670.

The Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition has 480 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 530 has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 6670 is 192 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 530 is 134. The HD 6670 having 58 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 6670 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GT 530.

The Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition requires 66 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 530 requires 50 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 530. The HD 6670 requires 16 Watts more than the GeForce GT 530 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 530.

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.

Performance
Without Overclocking Out of The Box, Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition is as fast as the reference Radeon HD 6670 v2.
Overview
GeForce GT 530 is an OEM only, middle-class 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 GF108-300-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 adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

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 around of a Radeon HD 5570, meaning it is much faster than Radeon HD 5450.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Celeron) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 530.
