Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GTX 275 sales 15 January 2009 at a recommended price of $249. This is Tesla 2.0 architecture desktop card based on 55 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 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 dual-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 10.5" (267 mm) (26.7 cm). 2x 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 219 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at

4.77%

of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.
