How well can the GeForce GT 520M run games
4 Jul 2020 - 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? A good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GT 520M would be the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile which meets 833 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 2520% better performance.

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.
