GeForce GT 210 vs Radeon HD 4350

Intro

The GeForce GT 210 makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 589 MHz. The DDR3 memory runs at a frequency of 800 MHz on this specific card. It features 16 SPUs as well as 8 Texture Address Units and 4 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon HD 4350, which makes use of a 55 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 575 MHz. The DDR2 RAM works at a frequency of 500 MHz on this card. It features 80(16x5) SPUs as well as 8 Texture Address Units 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

The GeForce GT 210 should in theory perform much 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 should be just a bit (more or less 2%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 4350. (explain)

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

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GT 210 is a little bit (about 2%) more effective at FSAA than the Radeon HD 4350, and also capable of handling higher screen resolutions without slowing down too much. (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: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster 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 processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, 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 most pixels the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.

which graphics card should i get? - General - OnRPG Free MMORPG Forums says:

[...] 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. [...]
