The NVIDIA GeForce GT 520 was a graphics processing unit (GPU) released in 2011, designed for use in desktop computers. It featured 1GB of DDR3 memory and 48 CUDA cores, which were suitable for basic graphics tasks such as video playback and web browsing.
The GT 520 supported DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.1, which enabled it to run modern games and applications. However, it struggled with more demanding applications and high-resolution video playback. Despite its limitations, it was a popular choice for users who required a basic level of performance at an affordable price point.
