NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT technical specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce 8800 GT sales 29 October 2007 at a recommended price of 349 USD. This is a Tesla architecture desktop card based on 65 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 512 MB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 0.9 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 57.6 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 1-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 9" (22.9 cm). An additional 6-pin & 8-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 105 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 5.40 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA TITAN Xp.

Technical specs

Quantitative parameters such as shaders number, GPU core clock, manufacturing process, texturing and calculation speed. These parameters indirectly say of video card performance, but to be more precise you have to review it's benchmark and gaming test results.

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.
