NVIDIA GeForce 9650M GT: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce 9650M GT


NVIDIA started GeForce 9650M GT sales 19 August 2008. This is Tesla architecture notebook card based on 65 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 256 GB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.6 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. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 23 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 1.49 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
