In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro K600 PNY 1GB Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition.

The K600 PNY has a 251 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GT 220. This results in the K600 PNY providing 4 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 K600 PNY has a 251 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the GT 220. This results in the K600 PNY providing 9 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 K600 PNY was released over three years more recently than the GT 220, and so the K600 PNY is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GT 220 when running the latest games.

The GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition and the Quadro K600 PNY 1GB Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The K600 PNY has 22.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 220, which means that the memory performance of the K600 PNY is slightly better than the GT 220.

The GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition has 48 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro K600 PNY 1GB Edition has 192. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 220 is 60 and the actual shader performance of the K600 PNY is 168. The K600 PNY having 108 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the K600 PNY delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 220.

The K600 PNY transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 220. This means that the K600 PNY is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 220.

The GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition requires 58 Watts to run and the Quadro K600 PNY 1GB Edition requires 41 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 220 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the K600 PNY. The GT 220 requires 17 Watts more than the K600 PNY to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GT 220 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the K600 PNY.

GPU Mini Review

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.

Frame Buffer
Untouched.


Cooling Solution
Untouched.

Performance
Performance is Lower than the Reference GeForce GT 220 v2, especially at Higher Resolutions.
Overview
Quadro K600 PNY 1GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Professional Quadro K600, created by PNY.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit runs at the same speed.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock runs at 667MHz and the Frame Buffer was Doubled to 1GB. This is a gimmick and in no way benefits the GPU.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling System remains the same.

Performance
Without Overclocking Out of The Box, Quadro K600 PNY 1GB Edition is as fast as the reference Quadro K600.
