In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 5570 1024MB are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition.

The HD 5570 has a 25 MHz higher core clock speed and 4 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 220. This results in the HD 5570 providing 3 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 HD 5570 has a 25 MHz higher core clock speed than the GT 220 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the HD 5570 providing 0.2 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 HD 5570 was released less than a year after the GT 220, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition and the Radeon HD 5570 1024MB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The HD 5570 has 22.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 220, which means that the memory performance of the HD 5570 is slightly better than the GT 220.

The GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition has 48 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 5570 1024MB has 400. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 220 is 60 and the actual shader performance of the HD 5570 is 169. The HD 5570 having 109 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 5570 delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 220.

The GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition requires 58 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 5570 1024MB requires 42 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 220 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 5570. The GT 220 requires 16 Watts more than the HD 5570 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GT 220 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the HD 5570.

Overclock: Central Unit
None.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock is now of 400MHz instead of 790MHz because the GPU Acesses a GDDR2 Frame Buffer, instead of GDDR3.

The Evergreen series is a family of GPUs developed by AMD graphics products division. The existence was spotted on a presentation slide from AMD Technology Analyst Day July 2007 as 'R8xx'. ATI held a press event in the USS Hornet museum on September 10, 2009 and announced ATI Eyefinity multi-display technology and specifications of the Radeon HD 5800 series' variants. The first variants of the Radeon HD 5800 series were launched September 23, 2009, with the HD 5700 series launching October 12 and HD 5970 launching on November 18 The HD 5670, was launched on January 14, 2010, and the HD 5500 and 5400 series were launched in February of 2010, completing what has appeared to be most of ATI's Evergreen GPU lineup.
Demand so greatly outweighed supply that more than two months after launch, many online retailers were still having trouble keeping the 5800 and 5900 series in stock.
