The ZOTAC GeForce GT220 is an entry-level graphics card that provides quite a punch given its limited features. Armed with a 625-MHz core clock and a memory clock of 1580 MHz, the GeForce GT220 has 1-GB DDR3 memory.
The ZOTAC GeForce GT220 comes with an HDMI port which makes it deal as an HTPC graphics solution. It does not need any additional power.
The card was tested on our graphics card test bench comprising of an ASUS P6T Deluxe motherboard on a Core i7 975 processor. For an entry-level graphics card, the ZOTAC GeForce GT220 performs well. It was better off than the ZOTAC GeForce 9500GT.
The ZOTAC GeForce GT220’s key advantage is that it does not tend to heat up a lot. We only saw a four to five degree difference between load and idle temperatures.
Priced at Rs. 5,500, the ZOTAC GeForce GT220 is slightly expensive, considering that the XFX GeForce 9600GSO, one of the winners in our entry-level graphics card test is marginally better and is also available at a lower price. If you’re planning to buy a new card, it’s better to wait a while.
