In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 620 are marginally better than the Intel HD Graphics 4000 Desktop.

The GeForce GT 620 has a 50 MHz higher core clock speed and 12 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics 4000. This results in the GeForce GT 620 providing 8.6 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 50 MHz higher core clock speed than the Graphics 4000 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GeForce GT 620 providing 0.2 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 less than a year after the Graphics 4000, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce GT 620 has 1024 MB video memory, but the Graphics 4000 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics 4000 Desktop has 16 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 620 has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics 4000 is 74 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 620 is 134. The GeForce GT 620 having 60 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Graphics 4000 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Graphics 4000 transistor size technology is 18 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GT 620. This means that the Graphics 4000 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GT 620. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Graphics 4000 should consume less power than the GeForce GT 620.

The HD Graphics 4000 Desktop requires 77 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 620 requires 49 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Graphics 4000 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GT 620. The Graphics 4000 requires 28 Watts more than the GeForce GT 620 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Graphics 4000 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce GT 620.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD Graphics 4000 Desktop are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's Desktop Ivy Bridge Processors.

Architecture
The Ivy Bridge GT2 Core includes support for DirectX 11, OpenCL 1.2 and OpenGL 4.0. Additionally, it also offers Hardware Tessellation, Dedicated L3 Cache and better Video Decoding Performance, when compared to its Predecessor.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GT2 which offers 16 Shader Processing Units, 4 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 200MHz and goes up to 1150MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies from System to System. 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 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 800MHz.
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.

Performance
The Most Powerful Variant Offers Performance similar to a dedicated GeForce GT 620.
Select the Specific Version you have of this Graphics Card According to your Processor for a more Accurate Rank and experience using our tools.

System Suggestions
We recommend 4GB of RAM for a system with Intel HD Graphics 4000 Desktop.
Overview
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.
