NVIDIA GeForce 410M

NVIDIA GeForce 410M

The NVIDIA GeForce 410M is an entry level dedicated laptop graphics card. It is based on the GF119 core, which is related to the Fermi architecture. Compared to the GT 520M that is based on the same chip, the 410M is slower clocked. Both support DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.0.

Performance

The rendering power of the GeForce 410M is similar to the integrated Intel HD Graphics 3000. However, due to better driver support and the dedicated memory, some games (like Dirt3 and Fifa 11) did run faster in our tests - see benchmarks below.

Features

Like the 500M series, the GeForce 410M supports Bitstream HD Audio (Blu-Ray) output via HDMI. That means the card is able to transfer Dolby True HD and DTS-HD bitstream-wise without quality loss to a HiFi receiver.

The 410M offers the PureVideo HD technology for video decoding. The included Video Processor 4 (VP4) supports feature set C and therefore the GPU is able to fully decode MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4 Part 2 (MPEG-4 ASP - e.g., DivX or Xvid), VC-1/WMV9, and H.264 (VLD, IDCT, Motion Compensation, and Deblocking).

Furthermore, the GPU is able to decode two 1080p streams simultaneously (e.g. for Blu-Ray Picture-in-Picture).

Through CUDA, OpenCL, and DirectCompute 2.1 support, the GeForce GT 410M can be of help in general calculations. Furthermore, physics calculations can be theoretically done by the GPU using PhysX (e.g. supported by Mafia 2 or Metro 2033) but the performance wont be sufficient for this.

With rumored 15 Watt TDP, the 410M is also suited for small laptops. However, the integrated Intel HD 3000 needs less power.
