NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GT 555M sales 26 March 2012. This is Fermi 2.0 architecture notebook card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 2 GB of DDR3\DDR5 memory clocked at 1.57 GHz are supplied, and together with Up to 192 bit/128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of Up to 50.2 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Power consumption is at 35 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 4.28 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
