NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 Rev. 2: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 Rev. 2


NVIDIA started GeForce GTS 450 Rev. 2 sales 15 March 2011. This is Fermi architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 1 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 3.61 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 57.7 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 210 mm. 1x 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 106 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 3.73 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
