NVIDIA GeForce 945M technical specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce 945M

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce 945M sales 27 October 2015. This is a Maxwell architecture notebook 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 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 28.8 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via MXM-B (3.0) interface. An additional none power connector is required, and power consumption is at 75 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 11.98 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA Quadro P6000.

Compatibility, dimensions and requirements

Information on video card compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop video cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility). For notebook video cards it's notebook size, connection slot and bus - if the video card is inserted into the slot instead of being soldered to the notebook motherboard.
