How well can the GeForce GT 520MX run games
4 Apr 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

Based on current gaming requirements the GeForce GT 520MX is considered one of the weakest cards and wont meet modern AAA game specs. GeForce GT 520MX is capable of DirectX 11 gaming requirements.

How many years will the GeForce GT 520MX graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GT 520MX in your PC? You should definitely consider replacing this GeForce GT 520MX graphics card, if it is still in your gaming PC.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GT 520MX? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q which is 2257% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 784 games from the most demanding games today.

GeForce GT 520MX Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GT 520MX is a entry-level Mobile Graphics Card based on the second 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 GF119 which has 1 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 48 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 900MHz.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and no way benefits the GPU. 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 20W, it is suited for small laptops.


Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance slightly above a desktop GeForce GT 420.


System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i3 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 520MX.
