NVIDIA GeForce 7950 GX2 technical specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce 7950 GX2

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce 7950 GX2 sales 5 June 2006 at a recommended price of 599 USD. This is a Curie architecture desktop card based on 90 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 2x 0.5 GB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.2 GHz are supplied, and together with 2x 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 2x 38.4 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 1.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 270 mm. An additional 1 6-pin power connectors are required, and power consumption is at 110 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 1.40 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA Quadro P6000.

Compatibility, dimensions and requirements

Information on video card compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop video cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility). For notebook video cards it's notebook size, connection slot and bus - if the video card is inserted into the slot instead of being soldered to the notebook motherboard.
