In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics 510 Desktop are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 610 Palit 2GB Edition.

The GT 610 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 610 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 610 has a 460 MHz higher core clock speed than the Graphics 510 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GT 610 providing 1.8 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 610, 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 610 when running the latest games.

The GT 610 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 GeForce GT 610 Palit 2GB Edition has 48 Shader Processing Units and the HD Graphics 510 Desktop has 12. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 610 is 78 and the actual shader performance of the Graphics 510 is 101. 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 610.

The Graphics 510 transistor size technology is 26 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 610. This means that the Graphics 510 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 610.

The GeForce GT 610 Palit 2GB Edition requires 29 Watts to run and the HD Graphics 510 Desktop requires 47 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 610 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Graphics 510. The Graphics 510 requires 18 Watts more than the GT 610 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 610.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 610 Palit 2GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Entry-Level GeForce GT 610, created by Palit.

Overclock: Central Unit

Overclock: Memory Clock

Frame Buffer
The Frame Buffer was doubled to 2GB.
While 2GB are needed in Modern Games for increased texture detail, the GPU is not powerful enough to work under other circumstances in which 2GB are needed, such as gaming at 1080p and thus a larger frame buffer is mostly a gimmick.

Cooling Solution

Benchmarks indicate no Performance Boost over the reference GeForce GT 610.
Intel HD Graphics 510 Desktop are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's Skylake Processors.

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 1050MHz, 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 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.
