NVIDIA GeForce 210: specs and benchmarks



NVIDIA started GeForce 210 sales 12 October 2009 at a recommended price of $29.49 . This is a desktop graphics card based on a Tesla 2.0 architecture and made with 40 nm manufacturing process. It is primarily aimed at gamer market. 512 MB of GDDR2 memory clocked at 0.5 GHz are supplied, and together with 64 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 8.0 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is single-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 6.60" (16.8 cm). No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 30.5 Watt.

We have no data on GeForce 210 benchmark results.
