NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GS: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GS

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce 9600M GS sales 3 June 2008. This is G9x architecture notebook card based on 65 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 1 GB of GDDR2, GDDR3 memory clocked at 0.8 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 25.6 GB / s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via MXM-II interface. Power consumption is at 20 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 0.11 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 SLI Mobile.
