In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 610 v2 are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 4290.

The Radeon HD 4290 has a 150 MHz higher core clock speed than the GT 610, but the GT 610 has 4 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon HD 4290. As a result, the GT 610 exhibits a 1.6 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the Radeon HD 4290. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The Radeon HD 4290 has a 150 MHz higher core clock speed than the GT 610 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the Radeon HD 4290 providing 0.6 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 GT 610 was released over a year more recently than the Radeon HD 4290, and so the GT 610 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Radeon HD 4290.

The GT 610 has 896 MB more video memory than the Radeon HD 4290, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GT 610 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GT 610 has 8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 4290, which means that the memory performance of the GT 610 is marginally better than the Radeon HD 4290.

The GeForce GT 610 v2 has 48 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 4290 has 40. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 610 is 53 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 4290 is 18. The GT 610 having 35 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GT 610 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon HD 4290.

The GT 610 transistor size technology is 27 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon HD 4290. This means that the GT 610 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon HD 4290. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GT 610 should consume less power than the Radeon HD 4290.

The GeForce GT 610 v2 requires 29 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 4290. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 610.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 610 v2 is an OEM only, Entry-Level Graphics Card based on the second 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 GF119-B1 which has 1 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 48 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 550MHz.

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 29W, 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 on average with Radeon HD 7350.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Celeron) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 610 v2.
Radeon HD 4290 (IGP) is an integrated GPU on the AMD 890GX Chipset.
It's based on the RS880D Core and offers 40 Shader Processing Units, 4 TMUs and 4 ROPs a 32-bit memory interface of either DDR2 (more commonly) or DDR3. The central unit runs, commonly, at up to 700MHz and the memory clock's operating speed depends on the system RAM's speed.
Radeon HD 4290's performance depends on the users system configuration which will define the operating memory clock's speed and on the desktop manufacturer which decides its central unit's speed.
Therefore, Radeon HD 4290, even if paired with DDR3 won't offer similar performance to the dedicated Radeon HD 4350. DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
