NVIDIA GeForce 930A: specs and benchmarks

VS

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce 930A sales 13 March 2015. This is a 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 3.26% of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.
