The Nvidia GeForce GT 630 is in serious gamers' graphics card territory, without hitting the big prices. Aimed at the value minded segment of the consumer market Zotac release GT 630 graphic card some time back under the price tag of Rs 5500, with the good performance card is one of the great lineup segments of Nvidia budget cards. The card does not need any extra 6-pin PCI-E power connector and this is a very helpful feature, especially for the users who just want to buy a graphics card and use it with their existing power supply .

The version we test is Zotac GT 630 1GB ddr5 with a core clock rated at 810mhz and memory clock rated at 800mhz.

Software:-

Benchmarks:-

Starting up the testing with some popular benchmarks 3dmark 11, 3dmark vantage and Unique Heaven.


3dmark 11

3DMark 11 is the very latest benchmark test from the house of Futuremark, which has brought out some of the most comprehensive benchmark applications for PC enthusiasts and gamers. 3DMark 11, as the name might probably suggest, makes use of the Microsoft DirectX 11 API and puts every feature on it at its disposal to use, creating astonishing realistic visuals. In the process, it evaluates DirectX 11-compliant GPUs and lets gamers know what to expect from upcoming games that make use of the API in terms of visual realism.



3dmark Vantage

3DMark Vantage is a full DirectX 10 compliant synthetic benchmark designed to test the DirectX 10 abilities of your video card and computing power of your PC. 3DMark Vantage focuses on the two areas most critical to gaming performance: the CPU and the GPU. With the emergence of multi-package and multi-core configurations on both the CPU and GPU side, the performance scale of these areas has widened, and the visual and game-play effects made possible by these configurations are accordingly wide-ranging.


Unique Heaven

Unique Heaven was one of the first demos that supported DirectX 11. Heaven is a technology demonstration of the Unigine engine which supports DirectX 9 through 11 and OpenGL. Version 2.0 adds more scenes and, optionally, more complex dissolution features. Although there is some controversy surrounding the benchmark and as to whether it is an accurate representation of what to expect from future games in regard to DirectX 11, we still decided to use this test to get an insight into the potential of future gaming.



Benchmarks Continues:-

Continuing the benchmarks with Some Games, and software used to check frames are Fraps and internal benchmarks of the Games.


Crysis 3

Set decades after the events of Crysis 2, you wake up from a stasis pod to find long lost friends and squadmate "Psycho," who explains how C.E.L.L has virtually taken over the world by monopolizing energy production in Crysis 3. The game lets you take the Crysis trilogy to its logical conclusion by putting a stop to C.E.L.L and an alien armada in a final and epic battle.
Based on a refined CryEngine 3 that supports DirectX 11 out of the box, Crysis 3 is easily one of the most visually stunning games ever made. You are handsomely rewarded for having fast hardware, but mainstream GPUs aren't left out in the lurch. At least that's the idea.

Sleeping Dogs

Sleeping Dogs is a 2012 open world action-adventure video game. The core gameplay of Sleeping Dogs consists of giving the player an open world environment in which to move around freely. Sleeping Dogs are played as an over-the-shoulder, third-person perspective action-adventure game with role-playing elements. The player controls Wei Shen, a Chinese-American police officer, as he goes undercover to infiltrate the Sun On Yee Triad organization.

Battlefield 3

Arguably the most anticipated online shooter titles among real gamers - PC gamers, Battlefield 3 is the latest addition to some of the most engaging online multi-player shooter franchises. It combines infantry combat with mechanized warfare including transport vehicles, armored personnel carriers, main battle tanks, attack helicopters, combat aircraft, pretty much everything that goes into today's battlefields. The infantry combat is coupled with role-playing elements, which makes the experience all the more engaging. It also has a single-player campaign which added a few gigabytes to its installer.

Behind all this is a spanking new game engine by EA-DICE, Frostbite 2. It makes use of every possible feature DirectX 11 has to offer, including hardware tessellation, and new lighting effects, to deliver some of the most captivating visuals gamers ever had access to. Not playing this game on PC is a grave injustice to what's in store. Faster PCs are rewarded with better visuals.

Batman Arkham City

Batman: Arkham City, a sequel to Batman Arkham Asylum, by Rocksteady Games and WB. It was released on the PC platform in November. Batman is imprisoned in Arkham City, an infamous district of the DC Universe that contains the scum of Gotham, most of whom Batman helped put in there. In order to get out, he must go through scores of baddies and encounters many of the iconic supervillains along the way - he's not entirely alone.
The Batman Arkham City uses the same Unreal Engine by Epic as Batman Arkham Asylum and takes advantage of DirectX 11.

Farcry 3

Far Cry 3 is an open world first-person shooter, which also features role-playing game elements including experience points, skill trees, and a crafting system. The player has the ability to take cover behind objects to break enemies' lines of sight and also to peek around and over cover and blind fire [clarification needed]. The player also has the ability to perform silent "takedowns" by performing melee attacks from above, below, or close behind.

Street Fighter X Tekken

Street Fighter X Tekken is a crossover fighting game developed by Capcom and released in March 2012 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, in May for the PC. The game features characters from both the Street Fighter franchise and Namco's Tekken series. In the game, players select two characters and face other duos in tag team fighting matches, in which the objective is to knock out both members of the opposing team.

Summary:-

Relatively lower end PC users, who are looking to solely upgrade the graphics capabilities of their systems, would be on the lookout for affordable cards that can meet their needs of playing games at relatively respectable settings. The Zotac GeForce GT 630 would be what these folks are looking for.

Buy a 7750 for 1-1.5k more. Far better performance for very little extra money.

lol, Unique Heaven - it should be unigine heaven.

Anyway, I've some questions :

1. you performed the gaming benchmarks in OC mode or used the stock clock ?
2. What's the idle and load temp of the card ?
3. Any info on the cards power consumption ?
