Get a taste of DirectX 11 technology with the ASUS GeForce GT 630 VGA card. This graphics card delivers great performance to deal with your daily work and entertainment needs. It features exclusive ASUS-designed heatsinks to ensure 0dB silent cooling. Whether you enhance photos, edit videos, watch movies, or play casual games, this graphics card delivers a performance boost every time.  Complete with the quality and reliability that ASUS is known for, this VGA card is a must-have for your computer in today’s media-rich environment. 

  • newegg 0dB Silent Cooling Exclusive ASUS-designed heatsinks with large surface areas effectively cool graphics cards passively, so absolutely no sound is produced while running – perfect for high-definition and silent home theater PCs and multimedia centers.
  • newegg Super Alloy Power The exclusive alloyed components boost performance by reducing power loss, enhancing durability, and achieving a cooler operation. The chokes’ concrete core eliminates the buzz sound in full load, while the capacitors assure a 50,000-hour lifespan – equivalent to 2.5 times longer than traditional capacitors.
  • newegg NVIDIA CUDA Technology CUDA technology unlocks the power of the GPU’s processor cores to accelerate the most demanding tasks, such as video transcoding, physics simulation, ray tracing, and more. It delivers incredible performance improvements over traditional CPUs.
  • newegg NVIDIA PhysX Technology Full support for NVIDIA PhysX technology enables a totally new class of physical gaming interaction, for a more dynamic and realistic experience with GeForce.
  • newegg NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical Sync Nothing is more distracting than framerate stuttering and screen tearing. The first tends to occur when framerates are low, the second when framerates are high. Adaptive V-Sync is a smarter way to render frames. At high framerates, V-sync is enabled to eliminate tearing; at low frame rates, it's disabled to minimize stuttering. It gets rid of distractions so you can get on with gaming.
  • newegg NVIDIA FXAA Technology Shader-based anti-aliasing technology, available from the NVIDIA control panel, enables ultra-fast anti-aliasing in hundreds of PC games.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat a difference!

Pros: Upgraded Asus on-board Radeon graphics. Office use only, but benchmarks better and way less lag with mu ltiple screens with many windows running at the same time. Money well spent.

Cons: Made me have to relocate a parralel port card.

5 out of 5 eggsBest fanless card I've found

Pros: Works great with Linux (I'm using Ubuntu 14.04) using the drivers available from the stock repositories (I've not bothered downloading the driver suite from NVidia's website).

Dead silent, obviously. This makes it fantastic for a media-center computer.

Heatsink is big enough that the card never gets too hot. I stopped monitoring the temperature long ago. but I'm pretty sure the highest temp I've seen was 51C - currently 43C, so the spread is narrow. If I were at all concerned about the heat, I could simply add a very slow and lazy quiet fan (12V fan running at 5V, for example) and it'd never even get warm.

2GB for about the same price as equivalent 1GB cards!

384 cores, not 96 like many other GT630 cards (see "Other thoughts")!

This card works wonderfully for Minecraft with extremely smooth gameplay on both my Phenom II 1090T (4.0GHz OC) with a 1920x1200 display and my media-center machine with an old 2.8GHz (stock clock) Athlon 5400+ with a 1920x1080 display, even with 256bit resource packs installed (sometimes the Athlon's CPU seems taxed with these, so we usually stick with 128bit resource packs on that machine, but that's because of the maxed out CPU, not the card's fault).
Planetary Annihilation plays extremely well on this card (on both of the above systems). Any issues I've had have been traced to known bugs in the game (some fixed already, some being worked on as I type).
Portal 2 could not be smoother with this card! (yeah, it's old, but it's one of the best games ever made)

I bought 2 of these to replace a GT610 1GB card (in my primary computer) and a GeForce 210 (in the family media-center computer) and got a much bigger performance boost than I expected in both machines.

Cons: It's DDR3, not DDR5 (but I knew that).

It's x8, not x16, though I'm not convinced this makes a difference (and I knew it before I bought them).

Low profile bracket is *not* provided as it was with every other low profile video card I've ever bought over the decades. Good thing my media-center computer doesn't require it... else, I'd remove an egg (note: 5 egg review).

Other Thoughts: Odd that it's PCIEx8 instead of X16... weird design decision, though I'm not sure it affects performance.

This next part is the source of a lot of confusion among people with whom I've discussed this card:
NVidia has released two different GPUs from different generations they put in cards with the same GT630 label, which makes looking up benchmarks utterly useless unless you are looking at a very specific brand and model number. Searching benchmarks for "GT630" is ambiguous and useless.
To elaborate on the differences:
This one has 384 cores, the other one (which is far more common) has only 96 cores.
This one has a 64-bit memory bus, the other has a 128-bit memory bus (odd they went backwards here).
This one is Kepler based, the other is Fermi based (previous generation).
This one (the chip, not the entire card) draws only 25W, the other draws 49W-65W (depending on clock speed). This is due to the newer generation chip and is the primary reason I bought this particular card.
This one supports DirectX 11.1, the other only DirectX 11 (for the benefit of those who run Windows).
A good spec comparison is on GeForce dot com.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap, low profile, I got what I expected. Would recommend if you are looking for a silent graphics card.

Cons: VGA connector seems kind of cheap. I have had similar connectors break free of the mounting bracket. Crossing fingers that it won't happen to this one.

4 out of 5 eggsQuiet & Cool Running

Pros: No fan to make noise or clog with dust.
Low power consumption so will probably work with most existing power supplies. Also less heat in your PC case.
3 year warrantee from ASUS.

Cons: Not for heavy duty games.
Does take up two spaces with the large heat sink.

Other Thoughts: Windows-7-32 bit WEI of 5.5 & 6.8 on a P45 motherboard.
Replacing a GF-430 which has a fan.
Hope ASUS's $10 rebate comes through.

5 out of 5 eggsAsus GT630-2GB

Pros: I bought this Geforce card by accident. I didn't pay attention to the ad. When I recieved I was expecting a PCIx16. Was not sure if it would work. After doing a little reading I discovered it would work with my 990 motherboard.
I put the card in the first PCIx16 slot and it fired right up. I am no gamer. But I do watch alot of movies. For 50 bucks this Geforce 630 does everything I need for. Plays movies and works well with my AMD 8 core system running Linux Manjaro..
Geforce cards seem to work so much better than ATI cards with Linux.. Also I am a big fan of fanless cards.. No dust balls to plug up the fans. Great for building a Home Theater Computer. My experience with Asus has been outstanding. I try to buy Asus products because they have great products. For 50 buck I feel I got my money worth. Super Fast shipping from Newegg. Very satified customer..

Cons: If you are serious gamer this may not be the card for you..However expect to fork out a lot more money.

Other Thoughts: Good Job Asus ! Thanks

4 out of 5 eggsminor update

Pros: Just a bit of an addendum: all the L4D2 and Portal trouble-free HQ play was on a Phenom II X4 940 @ 3.0GHz with 6GB DDR2-800, at the TV's native 1360x768 over HDMI and with no overclocking anywhere.

Cons: Coolbits is back since shortly after my 1st review where I said nVidia wasn't on it, so that was wrong... derp. I haven't played with it yet.
