NVIDIA GeForce GT 230 technical specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GT 230

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GT 230 sales 12 October 2009 at a recommended price of 43.99 USD. This is a 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. An additional None power connector is required, and power consumption is at 75 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 3.60 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA Quadro P6000.

Compatibility, dimensions and requirements

Information on video card compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop video cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility). For notebook video cards it's notebook size, connection slot and bus - if the video card is inserted into the slot instead of being soldered to the notebook motherboard.
