NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260M: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260M

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GTX 260M 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 are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 61 GB / s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Power consumption is at 65 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 0.74 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA TITAN RTX.
