Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce 930A sales 13 March 2015. This is Maxwell architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 2 GB of DDR3 memory clocked at 2 GHz are supplied, and together with 64 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 16.02 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is an integrated video card. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 33 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at

2.91%

of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.

Passmark

This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.
