Gaming Performance Comparison

In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 8570 2GB DDR3 (OEM) are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 630.

The HD 8570 was released less than a year after the GeForce GT 630, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The HD 8570 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GeForce GT 630, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the HD 8570 also has superior memory performance overall.

The HD 8570 has 0.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GT 630, which means that the memory performance of the HD 8570 is marginally better than the GeForce GT 630.

The Radeon HD 8570 2GB DDR3 (OEM) has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 630 has 192. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 8570 is 182 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 630 is 168. The HD 8570 having 14 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce GT 630 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon HD 8570 2GB DDR3 (OEM) requires 50 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 630 requires 50 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GeForce GT 630, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the HD 8570. 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.
