NVIDIA GeForce GT 440: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GT 440

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GT 440 sales 1 February 2011 at a recommended price of $79. This is Fermi architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 512 MB GDDR5 or 1 GB of DDR3 memory clocked at 1.6 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 28.8 (DDR3) – 51.2 (GDDR5).

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 5.7" (14.5 cm). No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 65 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 4.25 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 SLI Mobile.
