How well can the GeForce GT 520 v3 run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

Based on current gaming requirements the GeForce GT 520 v3 is considered one of the weakest cards and wont meet modern AAA game specs. DirectX 11 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

How many years will the GeForce GT 520 v3 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GT 520 v3 in your PC? You should definitely consider replacing this GeForce GT 520 v3 graphics card, if it is still in your gaming PC.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GT 520 v3? A suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce GT 520 v3 is the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB, which is 2586% more powerful and can run 895 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GT 520 v3 would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which meets 684 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 1909% better performance.

GeForce GT 520 v3 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GT 520 v3 is an OEM only, 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 GF108-200-A1 which has 1 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 48 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 2 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 810MHz.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is extremely exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 898MHz.


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 29W, 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 considerably above Radeon HD 5450.


System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Celeron) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 520 v3.
