NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M technical specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M


NVIDIA started GeForce GT 525M sales 5 January 2011. This is a Fermi architecture notebook card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 1 GB of DDR3 memory clocked at 0.9 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 28.8 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its power consumption is at 23 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 3.56 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
