NVIDIA GeForce 9500M GS: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce 9500M GS

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce 9500M GS sales 1 February 2008. This is Tesla architecture notebook card based on 80 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 0.5 GB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 0.7 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 22.4 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 1.0 x16 interface. Power consumption is at 20 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 1.53 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
