Lowest Prices

Testing:

As a lower-end card, the gaming usage for the GT 520 MDT will most likely be limited to casual gaming. Even so, I will run it through a few of the tests with some current titles at a resolution of 1280x1024. Any higher and the FPS delivered do not provide playable results. HAWX 2, Dirt 3, Batman Arkham City, Battlefield 3 and 3Dmark 11 Entry will be used as the gaming tests. Power consumption and thermal testing will follow OCC's standard testing formats using Unigine's Heaven 2.5 benchmark as the GPU load.

The Galaxy GT 520 MDT can play current games depending on the resolution and settings used. It would also prove adequate for casual gaming and even World of Warcraft. Power consumption under load is comparable to the idle power consumption of much higher powered cards. The temperatures on the Galaxy GT 520 MDT were consistent between the stock and overclocked test results with the 4C increase in load temperature due to strictly overclocking rather than an increase in voltage. The Galaxy GT 520 MDT, although a lower end card, has the unique ability to output a display signal to up to four monitors. With this ability, the end user can take advantage of a larger display surface for increased office productivity, improved real estate for content creation, or even view the latest trends in the stock market.
