NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS technical specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce 8600M GS sales 1 May 2007. This is a Tesla architecture desktop card based on 80 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 0.5 GB of DDR2 memory clocked at 0.8 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 12.8 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is MXM Module card attached via MXM-II interface. Its power consumption is at 20 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 0.90 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA TITAN Xp.

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.
