NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS 512: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS 512


NVIDIA started GeForce 8800 GTS 512 sales 11 December 2007 at a recommended price of $349. This is Tesla architecture desktop card based on 65 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 512 MB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.64 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 52.48 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is Dual-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 254 mm. 1x 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 135 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 2.89 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.
