NVIDIA GeForce 945A: specs and benchmarks
- Interface PCIe 3.0 x8
- Core clock speed 1072 MHz
- Max video memory 1024 MB
- Memory type GDDR5
- Memory clock speed 5012 MHz
- Maximum resolution
NVIDIA started GeForce 945A sales 13 March 2015. This is a Maxwell architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 1 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 5.01 GHz are supplied, and together with 64 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 40.1 GB/s.
Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 3.0 x8 interface. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 33 Watt.
It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at
of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.

Synthetic benchmark performance of GeForce 945A. The combined score is measured on a 0-100 point scale.
Combined synthetic benchmark score
This is our combined benchmark performance score. We are regularly improving our combining algorithms, but if you find some perceived inconsistencies, feel free to speak up in comments section, we usually fix problems quickly.
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.
