NVIDIA GeForce 820M: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce 820M

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce 820M sales 27 November 2013. This is Fermi 2.0 architecture notebook card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 1 GB of DDR3 memory clocked at 1.8 GHz are supplied, and together with 64 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 14.4 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Power consumption is at 15 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 4.09 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
