Gaming Performance Nvidia Geforce GT 820M Vs GT 730M

The Nvidia GT 820M is the entry level graphics card in many current generation laptops like Dell 3446 which also have a core i3 and 4Gb Ram and trades for Rupees 30,000. Gaming at this level is the most basic level we can achieve and it is definitely better to have a dedicated GPU compared to the intel HD 4400 graphics in no dedicated GPU machines.

Gaming Performance Nvidia Geforce GT 820M : Now coming to the point how much punch does it pack compared to GT 630M or a 730M. Before we do that if you are buying a Laptop like dell 3446 which has a Geforce Gt 820M , you must also note that it is powered by a U series Intel processor and 4005U is a very weak processor. I am not saying that it not be able to play games. It will run games but at low to medium settings, Games like Thief, crysis 3 and watch dogs may struggle to run on low settings also with 30 FPS.

The Nvidia 820M cannot play games like Crysis 3 or Thief which are very demanding. Even a GT 650M and Core i3 processor find it difficult to run crysis 3 at 720p and maintain a 30+FPS in the game. For running less demanding games like Counter Strike (CSGO) the Nvidia 820M is great card.

 The Nvidia GT 820M is very close to the GT 630M in performance though lags by 15-20% compared to the GT 730M. It is very much identical to the Gt 720M when it comes to the reference design and gaming performance.
