NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GTX 295 sales 8 January 2009 at a recommended price of $500. This is Tesla 2.0 architecture desktop card based on 55 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 1792 MB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1 GHz are supplied, and together with 896 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 223.8 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). 6-pin & 8-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 289 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 6.10 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA TITAN V.
