NVIDIA GeForce GTX 275 technical specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 275

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GTX 275 sales 15 January 2009 at a recommended price of 249 USD. This is a Tesla 2.0 architecture desktop card based on 55 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 896 MB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.13 GHz are supplied, and together with 448 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 127.0 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 10.5" (267 mm) (26.7 cm). An additional 2x 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 219 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 18.70 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
