NVIDIA GeForce GTS 150M: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GTS 150M

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GTS 150M sales 2 March 2009. This is G9x architecture notebook card based on 55 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 1 GB of GDDR3 memory clocked at are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 51 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Power consumption is at 45 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 1.93 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT.
