GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 vs GeForce GT 430


Intro

The GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 features a clock speed of 625 MHz and a GDDR3 memory frequency of 1012 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It is made up of 48 SPUs, 16 Texture Address Units, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GT 430, which has core clock speeds of 700 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 512 MB of GDDR3 memory. It features 96 SPUs along with 16 Texture Address Units and 4 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 58 Watts
GeForce GT 430 60 Watts
Difference: 2 Watts (3%)

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 should in theory be just a bit better than the GeForce GT 430 in general. (explain)

GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 32384 MB/sec
GeForce GT 430 28800 MB/sec
Difference: 3584 (12%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GT 430 will be a small bit (more or less 12%) better at texture filtering than the GeForce GT 220 GDDR3. (explain)

GeForce GT 430 11200 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 10000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 1200 (12%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 5000 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 430 2800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2200 (79%)

Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
