NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS


NVIDIA started GeForce 8400 GS sales 17 April 2007 at a recommended price of 29.99 USD. This is Tesla architecture desktop card based on 80 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 0.3 GB 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 1-slot card attached via PCIe 1.0 x16 interface. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 40 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 0.70 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
