It appears that the next graphics cards from 600 Series are refreshed Fermi chips. NVIDIA decided to release GeForce GT 520 as a ‘brand new’ GT 620 but additionally slicing its memory size by half. Secondly, by reviving old chap GT 510 NVIDIA prepared GeForce 605 (without any prefixes). Both cards are intended for OEM markets only.
NVIDIA says that GeForce GT 620 can increase multimedia performance twice in comparison to Intel HD 2500 graphics chip. Since this is only a replacement for integrated graphics cards it’s devoted for multimedia and business operations. It will accelerate web-browsing, Beauty Box for Adobe Photoshop and Nik Silver EFX Pro 2. So far so good. NVIDIA also promises that this card will guarantee full DirectX 11 experience in Diablo 3, but who can verify this since there is no such game yet?
Moving forward to ethusiast-segment, well I meant mainstream segment of course, with GeForce 605. Well looking at specifications we find only one detail worth of attention – this card can consume up to 25 Watts, which is the maximum power draw.
Both cards look exactly the same.
