In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 8800 GT are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 630 Palit 2GB Edition.

The GT 630 has a 180 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 8800 GT, but the GeForce 8800 GT has 40 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 630. As a result, the GeForce 8800 GT exhibits a 21.1 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GT 630. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GT 630 has a 180 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 8800 GT, but the GeForce 8800 GT has 12 more Render Output Units than the GT 630. As a result, the GeForce 8800 GT exhibits a 6.5 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GT 630. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GT 630 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 8800 GT, and so the GT 630 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 8800 GT when running the latest games.

The GT 630 has 1536 MB more video memory than the GeForce 8800 GT, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GeForce 8800 GT has superior memory performance.

The GeForce 8800 GT has 40.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 630, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 8800 GT is noticeably better than the GT 630.

The GeForce 8800 GT has 112 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 630 Palit 2GB Edition has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 8800 GT is 168 and the actual shader performance of the GT 630 is 150. The GeForce 8800 GT having 18 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 8800 GT delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 630.

The GT 630 transistor size technology is 25 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 8800 GT. This means that the GT 630 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 8800 GT.

The GeForce 8800 GT requires 105 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 630 Palit 2GB Edition requires 65 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GeForce 8800 GT and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 630. The GeForce 8800 GT requires 40 Watts more than the GT 630 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce 8800 GT may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GT 630.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce 8800 GT is a High-End Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Tesla Architecture.

Architecture
Tesla was NVIDIA's First Unified Shader Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed G92-270-A2 which has 7 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 112 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 600MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 512MB frame buffer of GDDR3, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Features
DirectX 10.0 Support (10.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, 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 105W, it requires at least a 400W PSU and it requires at least one 6-pin available connectors.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat below a Radeon HD 4770, meaning it is much faster than Radeon HD 3870.
Overview
GeForce GT 630 Palit 2GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Middle-Class GeForce GT 630, created by Palit.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit runs at 780MHz.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock runs at 535MHz and the Frame Buffer was raised to 2GB. This is a gimmick and in no way benefits the GPU.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling System Remains The Same.

Performance
Due to being under-clocked, GeForce GT 630 Palit 2GB Edition is actually slower than the reference GeForce GT 630.
