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

The GeForce GT 630 has a 80 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 8570, but the HD 8570 has 4 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GT 630. As a result, the HD 8570 exhibits a 1.6 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GeForce 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 GeForce GT 630 has a 80 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 8570, but the HD 8570 has 4 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GT 630. As a result, the HD 8570 exhibits a 2.6 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GeForce GT 630. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

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 memory bandwidth of the GeForce GT 630 and the Radeon HD 8570 (OEM) are the same, which means the GeForce GT 630 and the HD 8570 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

The GeForce GT 630 has 96 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 8570 (OEM) has 320. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 630 is 156 and the actual shader performance of the HD 8570 is 212. The HD 8570 having 56 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce GT 630 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The HD 8570 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GT 630. This means that the HD 8570 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GT 630.

The GeForce GT 630 requires 65 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 8570 (OEM) requires 30 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GT 630 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 8570. The GeForce GT 630 requires 35 Watts more than the HD 8570 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce GT 630 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the HD 8570.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 630 is 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 GF108-400-A1 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 96 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 2 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 810MHz.

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.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 65W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
GeForce GT 630 is essentially a fast GeForce GT 530.
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat above the older GeForce GT 530.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Modest Processor (Intel Celeron) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 630.
Overview
Radeon HD 8570 (OEM) is, an OEM Only, Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the Second Generation of the Graphics Core Next Architecture (GCN).



Architecture
Radeon HD 8570 (OEM) Features a GPU Codenamed Oland PRO. It has Feature Level DirectX 12.0, the AMD TrueAudio Technology and a revised version of AMD's Powertune Technology.
Oland PRO has 5 Compute Units Unlocked and thus offers 320 Shader Processing Units, 20 TMUs and 8 ROPs.

GPU
The Central Unit is Clocked at 720MHz and goes up to 780MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with DDR3 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 128-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 2GB. This is Adequate and a Good Match for the GPU's Shader Capabilities.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 30W, it requires at least a 400W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Performance is Comparable to the Desktop Radeon R7 240.

System Suggestions
Radeon HD 8570 (OEM) is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend a Middle-Class Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
