NVIDIA GeForce 945M: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce 945M

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce 945M sales 27 October 2015. This is 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 16.02 GB / s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via MXM-B (3.0) interface. Power consumption is at 75 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 7.45 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 SLI Mobile.
