NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GT: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GT

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce 9800M GT sales 29 July 2008. This is Tesla architecture notebook card based on 65 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 0.5 GB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.6 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 51.2 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Power consumption is at 65 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 3.09 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
