NVIDIA GeForce GTX 485M: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 485M

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GTX 485M sales 5 January 2011. This is Fermi architecture notebook card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 2 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 1.5 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 96.0 GB / s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via MXM-B (3.0) interface. Power consumption is at 100 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 12.05 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA TITAN V.
