GeForce GT 210 vs Radeon HD 4350

Intro

The GeForce GT 210 uses a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 589 MHz. The DDR3 RAM is set to run at a speed of 800 MHz on this card. It features 16 SPUs along with 8 Texture Address Units and 4 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon HD 4350, which has a clock frequency of 575 MHz and a DDR2 memory speed of 500 MHz. It also features a 64-bit memory bus, and uses a 55 nm design. It is comprised of 80(16x5) SPUs, 8 Texture Address Units, and 4 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon HD 4350 22 Watts
GeForce GT 210 31 Watts
Difference: 9 Watts (41%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce GT 210 should be quite a bit faster than the Radeon HD 4350 overall. (explain)

GeForce GT 210 12800 MB/sec
Radeon HD 4350 8000 MB/sec
Difference: 4800 (60%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GT 210 is just a bit (approximately 2%) more effective at AF than the Radeon HD 4350. (explain)

GeForce GT 210 4712 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 4350 4600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 112 (2%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GT 210 is a better choice, though only just barely. (explain)

GeForce GT 210 2356 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 4350 2300 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 56 (2%)

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 maximum amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.

[...] i didn't notice that,sorry lol. Go with the geforce card if that's the case. http://www.hwcompare.com/849/geforce...adeon-hd-4350/ A comparison of both cards at 512 mb GPU. [...]
