How well can the GeForce GT 525M run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

Based on current gaming requirements the GeForce GT 525M is considered one of the weakest cards and wont meet modern AAA game specs. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

How many years will the GeForce GT 525M graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GT 525M in your PC? Its upgrade time for the GeForce GT 525M, assuming you are a modern day gamer.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GT 525M? A good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GT 525M would be the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile which meets 982 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 1910% better performance. Alternatively if you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GT 525M then a good choice would be RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500M 8GB as this is better than 601 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 1151% better performance as well.

GeForce GT 525M Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GT 525M is a middle-class Mobile 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 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 96 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 600MHz.


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 Optimus, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 25W, it is suited for 15" or larger laptops.


Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat below a desktop GeForce GT 430.


System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i3 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 525M.

I don't understand how is this 51% better than my card. Gamebenchmarks show that their performance is nearly identical.Not so long time ago i remember that this card was only 6% better than my card, so has this card gotten better or has mine gotten worse?

yes, my be you can play at High setting. but not for all laptop. because 525m have 3 variant. like Try out Chip, Regular Chip and Market Chip-set. that all can be explained on Default Clock GPU.
Suggest
Tray to play on 3 machine GPU GT 525m. By default Clock 475, 600 and 700 MHz. and you will found different from them.

A GPU will resort to system ram (shared memory) when it runs out of dedicated memory (frame buffer). GeForce GT 525M has a memory clock of 1800MHz to fill its frame buffer. By resorting to system ram, depending on its frequency (usually 1333MHz) it will run slower - though not much slower in this case.
Say GeForce GT 525M was 1 GB of GDDR5 - it would be twice as slow by using system ram.

Hello,
Your GPU is equivalent to a GeForce 540M which is just a tiny bit faster than 525M. There are some 630M's that have higher clock frequencies though. If the price difference is huge, might as well buy the one with the 525M and overclock it.

No, I mean that if you change any of the components, you will also have to change the others. You might put extra RAM for very demanding games like BF3 but other than that, any change will not be worth it :/

Well no. If you put a GTX 680M you will get an enormous perform boost but your CPU will hold back the GPU. However, I read somewhere GT 525M is MXC so you are very limited to upgrade it if it's screwed. A friend once told me of a website that has all their sizes but I don't remember which any more :(

Hello,
I used to experience the same situation when playing BF3 on my old laptop that had a GeForce GT 540M - pretty much like yours.
That temperature is already too close to the threshold but it should not damage the component or affect its performance. Seems extreme, considering you have a cooling pad. Perhaps you can try disabling the Turbo Boost of the CPU to produce less heat or maybe it's time to clean the laptop. If you don't want to use compressed air, you can always vacuum the entrances, with the computer turned off.

Hi,
It depends on whether it's soldered or just screwed. You have to consider two things, in case you can remove it (if it's screwed):
1 - The Size of the GPU. The GPU you want to put in needs to be within the same size which reduces the expansion possibilities by a lot and trust me, yours is quite small.
2 - The PSU your laptop currently has. You probably have a PSU of around 100W. You'll need to upgrade it if you want a high-end GPU. Fortunately, it's external.

You might also have to consider a cooling upgrade because a more powerful GPU, will require a more efficient cooling system,. This should not be a problem with the new Kepler (Nvidia) GPUs (600M Series)-

Maybe a GeForce based on the Kepler GK107 Core will fit too. This means you could get between a GeForce GT 640M, GT 650M and GTX 660M.
