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 memory works at a speed of 800 MHz on this model. It features 16 SPUs as well as 8 Texture Address Units and 4 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon HD 4350, which comes with core speeds of 575 MHz on the GPU, and 500 MHz on the 512 MB of DDR2 RAM. It features 80(16x5) SPUs along with 8 TAUs and 4 Rasterization Operator 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 will be 60% quicker than the Radeon HD 4350 overall, because of its higher bandwidth. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The GeForce GT 210 will be a bit (about 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 running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GT 210 is the winner, not by a very large margin though. (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 largest amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total 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 in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach 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. [...]
