NVIDIA GeForce GT 520M technical specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GT 520M

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GT 520M sales 5 January 2011 at a recommended price of 59.99 USD. This is a Fermi architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 1 GB of DDR3 memory clocked at 0.8 GHz are supplied, and together with 64 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 12.8 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its power consumption is at 12 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 2.06 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.
Interface
PCIe 2.0 x16
