How many years will the GeForce 205 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce 205 in your PC? This GeForce 205 graphics card has reached the end of its ability to run games released today. If you have it in your gaming PC then it’s time to upgrade your graphics solution.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce 205? A great upgrade graphics card would be a 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB, which has 4600% better performance and can run 852 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today. Alternatively upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the R-500 Series Radeon RX 580 8GB which is 3733% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 789 games from the most demanding games today.

Architecture
Tesla was NVIDIA's First Unified Shader Architecture.


GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GT218-200-B1 which has 1 Stream Multiprocessor activated and thus offers 8 Shader Processing Units, 4 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 589MHz.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 512MB frame buffer of DDR2, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 400MHz.


Features
DirectX 10.1 Support (10.0 Hardware Default) and support for NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology, Dual-stream Hardware Acceleration, PhysX, CUDA, HybridPower and other technologies.


Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 31W, it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for Power meaning no extra connectors are required.


Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance considerably below a Radeon HD 4550, meaning even the older GeForce 9400 GT is much faster.
