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 7950 GT.

The GT 220 has a 75 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 7950 GT, but the GeForce 7950 GT has 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 220. As a result, the GeForce 7950 GT exhibits a 3.2 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GT 220. Neither of these GPUs support DirectX 10 or higher, so Texture Rate holds more weight than when comparing more modern GPUs.

The GT 220 has a 75 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 7950 GT, but the GeForce 7950 GT has 16 more Render Output Units than the GT 220. As a result, the GeForce 7950 GT exhibits a 8.2 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 over three years more recently than the GeForce 7950 GT, and so the GT 220 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 7950 GT when running the latest games.

The GT 220 has 512 MB more video memory than the GeForce 7950 GT, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GeForce 7950 GT has superior memory performance.

The GeForce 7950 GT has 38.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 220, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 7950 GT is noticeably better than the GT 220.

The GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition has 48 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 7950 GT has 24. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 220 is 60 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 7950 GT is 13. The GT 220 having 47 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce 7950 GT performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GT 220 transistor size technology is 50 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 7950 GT. This means that the GT 220 is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 7950 GT. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GT 220 should consume less power than the GeForce 7950 GT.

The GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition requires 58 Watts to run and the GeForce 7950 GT requires 65 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 7950 GT. The GeForce 7950 GT requires 7 Watts more than the GT 220 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce 7950 GT to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GT 220.
