GeForce GT 220 review

techPowerUp :: Zotac GeForce GT 220 1 GB Review :: Page 1 / 34

Please show me one test where the GT 220 beats a 9800 GT.
LOL, stormy, Diffirent site's, diffirent reviews. And Nvidia cant lie on the basic specs like GPU core speed and RAM speed. Theese things are higher in the 220. And why would they unmarket their own product?
ok... if you look on tom's hardware at the graphics charts (as i did before i ever said anything) the 220 is much slower than the 9800, specs are not everything.....

not all games.... and its not gonnna be great fps, i didn't say it wouldn't play games... it just won't play games well
All games will play well, Ive only just got rid of a 9600gt not two weeks ago and unless there are any games that have upped the tempo in that time then I can confirm it was able to play most games - mainly high settings with 1920-1080p @35+fps. Now when you consider 9800gt is slightly better then.............

And coolness the 9800 is a better performing card than the 220, I'd already checked it out against it before passing comment.

For those games most definitely the 9800 GT over the GT 220, no contest.

Please don't type in all capital letters, or in such a large font size. It's annoying, hard to read, and to put it as nicely as possible, it makes you look like a moron. Capital letters belong on proper nouns and at the beginning of the first word in a sentence. When you type in all large-sized red font that's all caps, it makes me (and many other people) not want to help you.


That being said, the 9800GT is the better card out of the two. If you want to compare an Nvidia graphics card to another Nvidia graphics card, then usually whichever one has more "Stream Processors" is usually the more powerful one. Stream Processors are also called "Shader Units" or "Processing Cores".

Look at the charts at TomsHardware in order to make a good comparison of how graphics cards perform. You'll notice that the 9800GT scores 299.6 on that chart, yet the GT220 only scores 145.9 - less than half. This makes sense, because the GT220 has less than half as many stream processors as the 9800GT.

If you were considering buying a 9800GT, then I'm going to assume you want to spend between $90 and $110 on a graphics card. My recommendation would be to go with a GTS250. They have 128 stream processors as opposed to 48 on the GT220 and 112 on the 9800GT. They cost about $15 more than a 9800GT, but that extra fifteen dollars is worth every penny.
Nvidia GTS250 on Newegg.com - $110 plus $7 for express shipping

The 9800GT will play every game on the planet better than the GT220. The amount of stream processors a graphics card has is about a hundred times more important than the amount of memory it has. A 9800GT with 512MB of memory will be more powerful than a GT220 even if the GT220 had 2GB or 4GB or even 8GB of memory. That's why you don't see GT220 cards with more than 1 or maybe 2GB of memory - because it doesn't increase performance. There aren't any games that can take advantage of more than about 1GB of graphics memory.
You also need to pay attention to the bus width - the amount of bits the card is - the GT220 is 128 bit, and the 9800GT is 256 bit. More is always better when it comes to the bits.
Spend the extra $10 and buy the GTS250 that I recommended above. It will run all of those games at nearly-maxed-out graphics settings, and it will be plenty powerful enough to run games that are released in the future at decently high settings as well.

No one bothered to ask what his system specs are or what resolution he is using.
Get the 9800GT or the GTS 250.

If you can go for ATI's 4770 or the 250, they're both about equal in performance and similar in pricing. Otherwise, just go for the 9800GT. On another note...you miiiight want to upgrade your HDD and/or RAM and knowing the screen resolution and your psu might also be helpful.
