NVIDIA GeForce GT 445M: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GT 445M


NVIDIA started GeForce GT 445M sales 3 September 2010. This is Fermi architecture notebook card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 3 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 1.25 GHz are supplied, and together with 192 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 60.0 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 35 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 4.92 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
