NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GTS: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GTS

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce 9800M GTS sales 21 August 2008. This is Tesla architecture notebook card based on 65 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 512 MB 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 75 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 3.35 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 SLI Mobile.
