NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GTS 450 sales 13 September 2010 at a recommended price of $129. This is Fermi architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 1 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 1.8 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 57.7 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is Dual-Slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 8.25" (210 mm) (21 cm). 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 106 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 5.20 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.
