NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GT 330M sales 10 January 2010. This is Tesla 2.0 architecture notebook card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 1 GB of GDDR3 memory clocked at Up to 1066 (DDR3), Up to 800 (GDDR3) MHz 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-A (3.0) interface. Power consumption is at 23 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 4.16 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
