NVIDIA GeForce GT 220M: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GT 220M


NVIDIA started GeForce GT 220M sales 15 June 2009. This is Tesla architecture notebook card based on 55 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 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 14 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 3.00 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
