NVIDIA GeForce 945A: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce 945A

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce 945A sales 13 March 2015. This is Maxwell architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 2 GB of DDR3 memory clocked at 1.8 GHz are supplied, and together with 64 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 14.4 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is MXM Module 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 8.17 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
