In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 620 are very slightly better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 5500.

The GeForce GT 620 was released over three years more recently than the Quadro FX 5500, and so the GeForce GT 620 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Quadro FX 5500 when running the latest games.

The GeForce GT 620 and the Quadro FX 5500 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Quadro FX 5500 has 22.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GT 620, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 5500 is slightly better than the GeForce GT 620.

The GeForce GT 620 has 96 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 5500 has 8. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 620 is 134 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 5500 is 6. The GeForce GT 620 having 128 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Quadro FX 5500 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce GT 620 requires 49 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 5500 requires 96 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GT 620 and a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the Quadro FX 5500. The Quadro FX 5500 requires 47 Watts more than the GeForce GT 620 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Quadro FX 5500 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce GT 620.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 620 is an Entry-Level Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Fermi Architecture.

Architecture
The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Fermi GF108-100-KB-A1 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 96 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 700MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 500MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 49W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance is somewhat better than Radeon HD 7470.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Celeron) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 620.
The Quadro line of GPU cards emerged in an effort at market segmentation by NVIDIA. In introducing Quadro, NVIDIA was able to charge a premium for essentially the same graphics hardware in professional markets, and direct resources to properly serve the needs of those markets. To differentiate their offerings, NVIDIA used driver software and firmware to enable features vital to segments of the workstation market; e.g., high performance anti-aliased lines and two-sided lighting were reserved for the Quadro product. In addition, improved support through a certified driver program was put in place. These features were of little value in the gaming markets that NVIDIA's products already sold to, but prevented high end customers from using the less expensive products. This practice continues even today although some products use higher capacity faster memory.
