In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics 510 Desktop are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 120.

The GeForce GT 120 has a 150 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics 510. This results in the GeForce GT 120 providing 5.2 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 GeForce GT 120 has a 150 MHz higher core clock speed and 4 more Render Output Units than the Graphics 510. This results in the GeForce GT 120 providing 2.6 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 Graphics 510 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce GT 120, and so the Graphics 510 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce GT 120 when running the latest games.

The GeForce GT 120 has 512 MB video memory, but the Graphics 510 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics 510 Desktop has 12 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 120 has 32. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics 510 is 101 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 120 is 40. The Graphics 510 having 61 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Graphics 510 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GT 120.

The Graphics 510 transistor size technology is 41 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GT 120. This means that the Graphics 510 is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GT 120.

The HD Graphics 510 Desktop requires 47 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 120 requires 50 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Graphics 510 and a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the GeForce GT 120. The GeForce GT 120 requires 3 Watts more than the Graphics 510 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce GT 120 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Graphics 510.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD Graphics 510 Desktop are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's Skylake Processors.

Architecture
The Skylake Core includes support for DirectX 12.1, OpenCL 2.0 and OpenGL 4.4. Additionally, it also supports DDR4 Memory.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GT1 which offers 12 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 350MHz and goes up to 1050MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies from laptop to laptop. Typically, the GPU reserves 1.7GB. Depending on whether or not the system's RAM is Dual-Channeled, it can access either a 64-bit or 128-bit memory interface. The operating memory clock also depends on the at which speed the System's RAM is running and is limited by the highest operating speed that the Processor supports. In this case, it is 1067MHz.
It is then obvious the Memory Bandwidth depends on a lot of factors and thus this Graphics Card performance may vary heavily from system to system.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance almost on level with the older Intel HD Graphics 4400.

System Suggestions
Intel HD Graphics 510 Desktop is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend a Decent Processor and 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
GeForce GT 120 is a middle-class GPU based on the 2009, 55nm, first-generation unified architecture.
It's based on the G96b Core and offers 32 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs, on a 128-bit memory interface of standard DDR2. The central unit runs at 500MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 500MHz.
It's therefore related to GeForce 9500 GT but with a slightly lower core-clock.
Today's modern demanding games will have to be played at low or medium settings to achieve fluent frame rates. DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
