In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Pentium G4400 are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition.

The GT 220 has a 275 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD Pentium G4400. This results in the GT 220 providing 7.2 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 GT 220 has a 275 MHz higher core clock speed and 4 more Render Output Units than the HD Pentium G4400. This results in the GT 220 providing 3.6 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 HD Pentium G4400 was released over three years more recently than the GT 220, and so the HD Pentium G4400 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 GT 220 has 1024 MB video memory, but the HD Pentium G4400 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition has 48 Shader Processing Units and the HD Pentium G4400 has 12. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 220 is 60 and the actual shader performance of the HD Pentium G4400 is 96. The HD Pentium G4400 having 36 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD Pentium G4400 delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 220.

The HD Pentium G4400 transistor size technology is 26 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 220. This means that the HD Pentium G4400 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 220. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the HD Pentium G4400 should consume less power than the GT 220.

The GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition requires 58 Watts to run and the HD Pentium G4400 requires 47 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 220 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the HD Pentium G4400. The GT 220 requires 11 Watts more than the HD Pentium G4400 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 HD Pentium G4400.

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

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.

Cooling Solution

Performance is Lower than the Reference GeForce GT 220 v2, especially at Higher Resolutions.
Intel HD Pentium G4400 is the specific version of Intel HD Graphics 510 Desktop that is integrated in the Pentium G4400 Processor.

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

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 1000MHz, in Turbo Mode.

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.

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

System Suggestions
Intel HD Pentium G4400 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend a Decent Processor and 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
