Advantages of NVIDIA GeForce GT 220

Somewhat newer (12 October 2009 vs 27 April 2009)

Higher memory bandwidth (25.3 vs 24 GB/s)

Finer manufacturing process technology (40 vs 55 nm)

Lower power consumption (58W vs 75W), meaning that the rival with higher TDP might require a better cooler or other thermal solution.

CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture - an API for video card computing power usage in tasks different from 3D graphics processing. Can be used for physics simulation for instance)

Advantages of NVIDIA GeForce GT 230 OEM

Wider memory bus (192 vs 128 bit)

More pipelines (96 vs 48)
