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

Based on current gaming requirements the GeForce GT 520M 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 520M graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GT 520M in your PC? Its upgrade time for the GeForce GT 520M, assuming you are a modern day gamer.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GT 520M? If you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile. This PC hardware upgrade performs 3216% better and can run 982 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games. Alternatively a suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce GT 520M is the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500M 8GB, which is 1965% more powerful and can run 606 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

GeForce GT 520M Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GT 520M is a entry-level Mobile Graphics Card based on the second 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 which has 1 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 48 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 740MHz.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 800MHz.


Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Optimus, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 12W, it is suited for very small laptops.


Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat below a desktop GeForce GT 420.


System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i3 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 520M.

But my Mobility Radeon 5470 512MB is 49% worse than this and still play games OK. It can't be that bad.
