In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 630 v3 Zotac Zone 4GB Edition are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 630 Gigabyte 2GB Edition.

The GT 630 has a 92 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GT 630. This results in the GT 630 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 630 has a 92 MHz higher core clock speed and 4 more Render Output Units than the GT 630. This results in the GT 630 providing 4 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 630 was released over a year more recently than the GT 630, and so the GT 630 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GT 630.

The GT 630 has 2048 MB more video memory than the GT 630, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GT 630 has superior memory performance.

The GT 630 has 12.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 630, which means that the memory performance of the GT 630 is slightly better than the GT 630.

The GeForce GT 630 v3 Zotac Zone 4GB Edition has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 630 Gigabyte 2GB Edition has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 630 is 346 and the actual shader performance of the GT 630 is 156. The GT 630 having 190 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GT 630 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GT 630 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 630. This means that the GT 630 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 630. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GT 630 should consume less power than the GT 630.

The GeForce GT 630 v3 Zotac Zone 4GB Edition requires 25 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 630 Gigabyte 2GB Edition requires 65 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 630 and a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the GT 630. The GT 630 requires 40 Watts more than the GT 630 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GT 630 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GT 630.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 630 v3 Zotac Zone 4GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Middle-Class GeForce GT 630 v3, created by Zotac.

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

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock is now of 800MHz while the Frame Buffer was doubled to 4GB: a gimmick which doesn't yield any performance boost and can be considered market to lure consumers into paying more for the same product.

Cooling Solution
Data Not Available.

Performance
Without Overclocking Out of The Box, GeForce GT 630 v3 Zotac Zone 4GB Edition is as fast as the reference GeForce GT 630 v3.
Overview
GeForce GT 630 Gigabyte 2GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Middle-Class GeForce GT 630, created by Gigabyte.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit Remains the Same.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock runs at 800MHz and the Frame Buffer was raised to 2GB. This is a gimmick and in no way benefits the GPU.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling System has been replaced by Gigabyte's custom-designed 80 mm cooler, with air flow optimized cover and aluminum base. The cooler can dissipate heat effectively from the GPU while keeping the fan at lower speed and noise.

Performance
Without Any Overclock Out of The Box, GeForce GT 630 Gigabyte 2GB Edition is as fast as the reference GeForce GT 630.
