NVIDIA GeForce MX130 vs AMD Radeon 530 (4GB GDDR5)

Last time we witnessed how the entry-level NVIDIA GeForce MX130 smashes its opponent – the NVIDIA GeForce 930MX (2GB DDR3). So we have chosen another graphics card to stack it up against but this time it is manufactured by AMD – the Radeon 530 (4GB GDDR5).

You can check out our Top Laptop Graphics Ranking to see these two graphics cards and many more.

Specs overview

For starters, the NVIDIA GeForce MX130 features a total of 384 shader cores, 24 TMUs, and 8 ROPs. Based on a 28 nm manufacturing process, the graphics card is part of the Maxwell family and supports DirectX 12.0. In addition, it is equipped with 2,048 GB GDDR5 memory connected via a 64-bit memory bus. NVIDIA GeForce MX130 is running at a base frequency of 1122 MHz, which can reach 1242 MHz. Also, the TDP is rated at 30W.

Now let’s take a look at its rival’s specs sheet. The AMD Radeon 530 is also suitable for entry-level notebooks and can be used for general multimedia and light gaming. The graphics chip is based on the Sun GCN architecture and it’s built on a 28nm node. In addition, AMD Radeon 530 uses 320 or 384 shaders, depending on the version and its frequency varies from 730 MHz to 1024 MHz. The memory setup here includes 4GB of GDDR5 memory connected using a 64-bit interface. Furthermore, the GPU also comes with support for DirectX 12 and its TDP is rated at 50 W.

Benchmarks

Results are from the 3DMark: Fire Strike (Graphics) benchmark (higher the score, the better)

Results are from the Unigine Heaven 3.0 benchmark (higher the score, the better)

Results are from the Unigine Heaven 4.0 benchmark (higher the score, the better)

Results are from the Unigine Superposition benchmark (higher the score, the better)

In the graph above you can see an approximate comparison between the two GPUs that can be found in Acer Aspire 5 and Dell Inspiron 5770 respectively. Judging by the results from our benchmark tests, GeForce MX130 exceeds with around 11% when it comes to the Fire Strike (Graphics) benchmark. As far as the Unigine Heaven 3.0 and 4.0 tests are concerned, NVIDIA’s graphics chip shows supremacy once again with 85% and 43% respectively. And finally, our Unigine Superposition benchmark test is once again in favor of the GeForce MX130 – it shows 36% better results.

Conclusion

To sum things up, given the fact that NVIDIA’s GeForce MX130 GPU smashes its opponent in all 4/4 benchmark tests it has every right to be pronounced the winner of today’s comparison.
