Gaming Performance Comparison

In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 530 are massively better than the .

The has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The GeForce GT 530 was released over three years more recently than the , and so the GeForce GT 530 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the when running the latest games.

The GeForce GT 530 has 1024 MB video memory, but the does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce GT 530 has 96 Shader Processing Units but the does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce GT 530 requires 50 Watts to run but there is no entry for the . We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GT 530.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 530 is an OEM only, middle-class Graphics Card based on the first 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 GF108-300-A1 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 96 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 700MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

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

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

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 49W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance around of a Radeon HD 5570, meaning it is much faster than Radeon HD 5450.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Celeron) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 530.
