NVIDIA GeForce GT 120M: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GT 120M

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GT 120M sales 15 June 2009. This is Tesla architecture notebook card based on 65 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 1 GB of DDR2 memory clocked at 1 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 16 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Power consumption is at 14 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 1.75 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
