NVIDIA GeForce GT 440: specs and benchmarks



NVIDIA started GeForce GT 440 sales 1 February 2011 at a recommended price of $79 . This is a 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 dual-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 1.99% of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.

This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.

Octane Render OctaneBench

This is a special benchmark measuring graphics card performance in OctaneRender, which is a realistic GPU rendering engine by OTOY Inc., available either as a standalone program, or as a plugin for 3DS Max, Cinema 4D and many other apps. It renders four different static scenes, then compares render times with a reference GPU which is currently GeForce GTX 980. This benchmark has nothing to do with gaming and is aimed at professional 3D graphics artists.
