In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 620 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 210 1GB.

The GeForce GT 620 has a 111 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce 210 1GB. This results in the GeForce GT 620 providing 6.5 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 GeForce GT 620 has a 111 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 210 1GB and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GeForce GT 620 providing 0.4 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 GeForce GT 620 was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 210 1GB, and so the GeForce GT 620 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 210 1GB.

The GeForce GT 620 and the GeForce 210 1GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce GT 620 has 6.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 210 1GB, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GT 620 is marginally better than the GeForce 210 1GB.

The GeForce GT 620 has 96 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 210 1GB has 16. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 620 is 134 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 210 1GB is 22. The GeForce GT 620 having 112 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GT 620 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 210 1GB.

The GeForce GT 620 requires 49 Watts to run and the GeForce 210 1GB requires 31 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GT 620 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce 210 1GB. The GeForce GT 620 requires 18 Watts more than the GeForce 210 1GB to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce GT 620 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce 210 1GB.

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.
Overview
GeForce 210 1GB is an Entry-Level Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Tesla Architecture.

Architecture
Tesla was NVIDIA's First Unified Shader Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GT218-300-B1 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 16 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 589MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR2, through a 64-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 10.1 Support (10.0 Hardware Default) and support for NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology, Dual-stream Hardware Acceleration, PhysX, CUDA, HybridPower and other technologies.

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

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 31W, it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for Power meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance considerably below a Radeon HD 4550, meaning even the older GeForce 9400 GT is faster.
