NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295 technical specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GTX 295 sales 8 January 2009 at a recommended price of 500 USD. This is a 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). An additional 6-pin & 8-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 289 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 7.65 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA Quadro P6000.

Technical specs

Quantitative parameters such as shaders number, GPU core clock, manufacturing process, texturing and calculation speed. These parameters indirectly say of video card performance, but to be more precise you have to review it's benchmark and gaming test results.

Compatibility, dimensions and requirements

Information on video card compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop video cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility). For notebook video cards it's notebook size, connection slot and bus - if the video card is inserted into the slot instead of being soldered to the notebook motherboard.
