In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Single Fan OC 1GB Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 620 Galaxy 2GB Edition.

The GT 430 has a 85 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GT 620. This results in the GT 430 providing 1.4 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GT 430 has a 85 MHz higher core clock speed than the GT 620 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GT 430 providing 0.3 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GT 620 was released over a year more recently than the GT 430, and so the GT 620 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GT 430.

The GT 620 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GT 430, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GT 430 has superior memory performance.

The GT 430 has 21.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 620, which means that the memory performance of the GT 430 is slightly better than the GT 620.

Both the GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Single Fan OC 1GB Edition and the GeForce GT 620 Galaxy 2GB Edition have 96 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the GT 430 is 151 and by the GT 620 is 134. Knowing that the shader performance of the GT 430 is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Single Fan OC 1GB Edition requires 49 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 620 Galaxy 2GB Edition requires 49 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 430 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 620. 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 ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Single Fan OC 1GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's middle-class GeForce GT 430, created by MSI.

Overclock Out of The Box
The Central Unit is now of 785MHz, instead of 700MHz while the Operating Memory Clock is now of 925MHz.

Cooling Solution
The reference Cooling System has been replaced by MSI's Single Fan Cooling System.

Performance
Benchmarks indicate a 5% performance boost over the reference GeForce GT 430.
Overview
GeForce GT 620 Galaxy 2GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Entry-Level GeForce GT 620, created by Galaxy.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit runs at the same speed.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock runs at 500MHz 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
Without Overclocking Out of The Box, GeForce GT 620 Galaxy 2GB Edition is as fast as the reference GeForce GT 620.
