How well can the GeForce GT 520 v4 run games
28 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

Based on current gaming requirements the GeForce GT 520 v4 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 v4 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GT 520 v4 in your PC? You should definitely consider replacing this GeForce GT 520 v4 graphics card, if it is still in your gaming PC.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GT 520 v4? A great upgrade graphics card would be a 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB, which has 2292% better performance and can run 897 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today. Alternatively if you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GT 520 v4 then a good choice would be RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB as this is better than 668 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 1658% better performance as well.

GeForce GT 520 v4 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GT 520 v4 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 GF119-300-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 589MHz.


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 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 on average with Radeon HD 6450.


System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Celeron) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 520 v4.
