In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 6570 v2 are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 630 Gigabyte 2GB Edition.

The GT 630 has a 160 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 6570, but the HD 6570 has 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 630. As a result, the HD 6570 exhibits a 2.6 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GT 630. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GT 630 has a 160 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 6570, but the HD 6570 has 4 more Render Output Units than the GT 630. As a result, the HD 6570 exhibits a 2 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GT 630. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GT 630 was released over a year more recently than the HD 6570, and so the GT 630 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the HD 6570.

The GT 630 has 1024 MB more video memory than the HD 6570, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the HD 6570 has superior memory performance.

The HD 6570 has 3.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 630, which means that the memory performance of the HD 6570 is marginally better than the GT 630.

The GeForce GT 630 Gigabyte 2GB Edition has 96 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 6570 v2 has 480. The two GPUs are based on different architectures, but deliver an equivalent shader performance. To compare, we must continue to look at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, the HD 6570 has 2.6 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate, 2 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate, and 3.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth, so should have a marginally faster performance than the GT 630.

The GeForce GT 630 Gigabyte 2GB Edition requires 65 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 6570 v2 requires 44 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the GT 630 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 6570. The GT 630 requires 21 Watts more than the HD 6570 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GT 630 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the HD 6570.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 630 Gigabyte 2GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Middle-Class GeForce GT 630, created by Gigabyte.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit Remains the Same.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock runs at 800MHz and the Frame Buffer was raised to 2GB. This is a gimmick and in no way benefits the GPU.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling System has been replaced by Gigabyte's custom-designed 80 mm cooler, with air flow optimized cover and aluminum base. The cooler can dissipate heat effectively from the GPU while keeping the fan at lower speed and noise.

Without Any Overclock Out of The Box, GeForce GT 630 Gigabyte 2GB Edition is as fast as the reference GeForce GT 630.
Radeon HD 6570 v2 is a middle-class Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Terascale Architecture.

The Second variant of the Terascale 2 Architecture is still manufactured with a 40nm technology and despite allowing more Stream Cores, their design remains more or less the same compared to the first variant.

It equips a GPU codenamed Turks PRO-L which has 6 Compute Units activated and thus offers 480 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs.

The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The memory clock operates at 900MHz. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU.

DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Crossfire, HD3D, Eyefinity, App Acceleration, PowerPlay and other technologies.

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

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 44W, it requires at least a 400W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Gaming benchmarks put its performance only very slightly above GeForce GT 440, meaning GeForce GTS 450 is still much faster.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Celeron) and 4GB of RAM for a system with Radeon HD 6570 v2.
