How well can the GeForce GT 420 run games
31 Oct 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

Based on current gaming requirements the GeForce GT 420 is considered one of the weakest cards and wont meet modern AAA game specs. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

How many years will the GeForce GT 420 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GT 420 in your PC? Its upgrade time for the GeForce GT 420, assuming you are a modern day gamer.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GT 420? If you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 2868% better and can run 901 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GT 420 would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which meets 694 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 2120% better performance.

GeForce GT 420 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GT 420 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, 4 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 700MHz.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB 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 900MHz.


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 50W, 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 around of a Radeon HD 5450.


System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Celeron) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 430.
