NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GS: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GS

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce 8800 GS sales 31 January 2008. This is Tesla architecture desktop card based on 65 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 384 MB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.6 GHz are supplied, and together with 192 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 38.4 GB / s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 1-slot card attached via PCIe 1.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 229 mm. 1x 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 105 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 2.83 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 SLI Mobile.
