NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS: specs and benchmarks
- Interface PCIe 1.0 x16
- Core clock speed 459 MHz
- Max video memory 256 MB
- Memory type DDR2
- Memory clock speed 800 MHz
- Maximum resolution
NVIDIA started GeForce 8400 GS sales 17 April 2007 at a recommended price of $29.99. This is Tesla architecture desktop card based on 80 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 256 MB of DDR2 memory clocked at 0.8 GHz are supplied, and together with 64 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 6.4 GB/s.
Compatibility-wise, this is single-slot card attached via PCIe 1.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 170 mm. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 40 Watt.
It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at
of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti.

Non-gaming benchmark performance of GeForce 8400 GS. Note that overall benchmark performance is measured in points in 0-100 range.
This is our combined benchmark performance rating. We are regularly improving our combining algorithms, but if you find some perceived inconsistencies, feel free to speak up in comments section, we usually fix problems quickly.
This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.
Let's see how good GeForce 8400 GS is for gaming. Particular gaming benchmark results are measured in frames per second. Comparisons with game system requirements are included, but remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect reality inaccurately.
Overall GeForce 8400 GS performance compared to nearest competitors among desktop video cards.
The nearest GeForce 8400 GS's AMD equivalent is Radeon HD 5450, which is faster by 4% and higher by 7 positions in our rating.
