NVIDIA GeForce GT 230: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GT 230

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GT 230 sales 12 October 2009 at a recommended price of $43.99. This is Tesla architecture desktop card based on 55 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 0.5 GB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.8 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 57.6 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 1-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 75 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 2.99 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
