In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics 510 Desktop are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 520 v3.

The GT 520 has a 460 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the Graphics 510. This results in the GT 520 providing 3.7 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 GT 520 has a 460 MHz higher core clock speed but 2 fewer Render Output Units than the Graphics 510. The lower ROP count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the GT 520 manages to provide 0.2 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 GT 520, 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 GT 520 when running the latest games.

The GT 520 has 2048 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 520 v3 has 48. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics 510 is 101 and the actual shader performance of the GT 520 is 78. The Graphics 510 having 23 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Graphics 510 delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 520.

The Graphics 510 transistor size technology is 26 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 520. This means that the Graphics 510 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 520.

The HD Graphics 510 Desktop requires 47 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 520 v3 requires 29 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Graphics 510 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 520. The Graphics 510 requires 18 Watts more than the GT 520 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Graphics 510 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GT 520.

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.
Overview
GeForce GT 520 v3 is an OEM only, Entry-Level 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 GF108-200-A1 which has 1 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 48 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 2 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 810MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is extremely exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 898MHz.

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 considerably above Radeon HD 5450.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Celeron) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 520 v3.
