NVIDIA GeForce 7950 GT: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce 7950 GT

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce 7950 GT sales 6 August 2006 at a recommended price of $114.95. This is Curie architecture desktop card based on 90 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 512 MB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.4 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 44.8 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is Single-slot card attached via PCIe 1.0 x16 interface. 1x 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 65 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 1.22 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.
