In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 630 Palit 2GB Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 7950 GT.

The GT 630 has a 230 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 7950 GT, but the GeForce 7950 GT has 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 630. As a result, the GeForce 7950 GT exhibits a 0.7 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GT 630. Neither of these GPUs support DirectX 10 or higher, so Texture Rate holds more weight than when comparing more modern GPUs.

The GT 630 has a 230 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 7950 GT, but the GeForce 7950 GT has 20 more Render Output Units than the GT 630. As a result, the GeForce 7950 GT exhibits a 10.1 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 7950 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 7950 GT when running the latest games.

The GT 630 has 1536 MB more video memory than the GeForce 7950 GT, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GeForce 7950 GT has superior memory performance.

The GeForce 7950 GT has 27.7 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 630, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 7950 GT is slightly better than the GT 630.

The GeForce 7950 GT has 24 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 630 Palit 2GB Edition has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 7950 GT is 13 and the actual shader performance of the GT 630 is 150. The GT 630 having 137 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce 7950 GT performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GT 630 transistor size technology is 50 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 7950 GT. This means that the GT 630 is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 7950 GT.

The GeForce 7950 GT requires 65 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 630 Palit 2GB Edition requires 65 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the GeForce 7950 GT and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 630. The two GPUs require the same amount of wattage to run. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe NVIDIA GeForce 7 Series graphics processing units (GPUs) represent a significant leap forward in 3D graphics design, delivering the unparalleled horsepower and revolutionary technologies you need to tackle the latest games and video applications. The GeForce 7 Series GPUs deliver blazing frame rates and outstanding image quality so you can experience full-throttle graphics performance.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.
