NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M technical specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GT 555M sales 26 March 2012. This is a 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. Its power consumption is at 35 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 4.96 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.
