NVIDIA GeForce GT 545: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GT 545

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GT 545 sales 14 May 2011 at a recommended price of $149. This is Fermi 2.0 architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 1536 MB of DDR3 memory clocked at 1.6 GHz are supplied, and together with 192 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 38.4 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is Single-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 145 mm. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 70 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 6.19 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.
