NVIDIA GeForce 8700M GT: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce 8700M GT

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce 8700M GT sales 1 June 2007. This is Tesla architecture notebook card based on 80 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 0.5 GB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.6 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 25.6 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via MXM-HE interface. Power consumption is at 29 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 2.80 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
