NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce 8800 GTX sales 8 November 2006 at a recommended price of $599. This is Tesla architecture desktop card based on 90 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 768 MB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 0.9 GHz are supplied, and together with 384 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 86.4 GB / s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 1.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 270 mm. Two 6-pin power connectors are required, and power consumption is at 155 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 4.42 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA TITAN V.
