NVIDIA GeForce GTS 160M: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GTS 160M

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GTS 160M sales 3 March 2009. This is Tesla architecture notebook card based on 65 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 1 GB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 0.8 GHz 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 60 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 4.05 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
