In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 620 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 6800 Series 128MB.

The GeForce GT 620 was released over three years more recently than the 6800 Series, 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 6800 Series when running the latest games.

The GeForce GT 620 has 896 MB more video memory than the 6800 Series, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce GT 620 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce GT 620 has 3.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 6800 Series, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GT 620 is marginally better than the 6800 Series.

The GeForce GT 620 has 96 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6800 Series 128MB has 17. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 620 is 134 and the actual shader performance of the 6800 Series is 6. The GeForce GT 620 having 128 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 6800 Series.

The GeForce GT 620 requires 49 Watts to run and the GeForce 6800 Series 128MB requires 39 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GT 620. The GeForce GT 620 requires 10 Watts more than the 6800 Series 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 6800 Series.

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 groundbreaking new NVIDIA GeForce 6800 graphics processing units (GPUs) and their revolutionary technologies power worlds where reality and fantasy meet; worlds in which new standards are set for visual realism and quality, performance, and video functionality. The GeForce 6800 GPUs deliver powerful, elegant graphics to drench your senses, immersing you in unparalleled worlds of visual effects for the ultimate PC experience.
