In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 130.

The GT 220 has a 125 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GT 130, but the GeForce GT 130 has 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 220. As a result, the GeForce GT 130 exhibits a 6 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GT 220. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GT 220 has a 125 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GT 130, but the GeForce GT 130 has 8 more Render Output Units than the GT 220. As a result, the GeForce GT 130 exhibits a 3 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GT 220. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GT 220 was released less than a year after the GeForce GT 130, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GT 220 has 256 MB more video memory than the GeForce GT 130, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GeForce GT 130 has superior memory performance.

The GeForce GT 130 has 17.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 220, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GT 130 is slightly better than the GT 220.

Both the GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition and the GeForce GT 130 have 48 Shader Processing Units. 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 GeForce GT 130 has 6 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate, 3 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate, and 17.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth, so should have a slightly faster performance than the GT 220.

The GT 220 transistor size technology is 15 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GT 130. This means that the GT 220 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GT 130. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GT 220 should consume less power than the GeForce GT 130.

The GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition requires 58 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 130 requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 220 and a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the GeForce GT 130. The GeForce GT 130 requires 17 Watts more than the GT 220 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce GT 130 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GT 220.

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's Entry-Level GeForce GT 220 v2, created by Galaxy.

Overclock: Central Unit
None.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock is now of 400MHz instead of 790MHz because the GPU Acesses a GDDR2 Frame Buffer, instead of GDDR3.

Performance
Performance is Lower than the Reference GeForce GT 220 v2, especially at Higher Resolutions.
GeForce GT 130 is a middle-class GPU based on the 2009, 55nm, first-generation unified architecture.
It's based on the G94b Core and offers 48 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 12 ROPs, on a 192-bit memory interface of standard DDR2. The central unit runs at 500MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 500MHz.
It's therefore a renamed GeForce 9600 GS. Compared to GeForce GT 120, it should perform significantly better but also consume 50% more power.
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.
