NVIDIA GeForce GT 730M: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GT 730M

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GT 730M sales 6 March 2014. This is Kepler 2.0 architecture notebook card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 2 GB of DDR3 memory clocked at 1.8 GHz are supplied, and together with 64 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 14.4 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 2.0 x8 interface. Power consumption is at 33 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 4.99 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
