NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GTX 780M sales 11 May 2013. This is Kepler architecture notebook card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 4 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 2.5 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 160.0 GB / s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via MXM-B (3.0) interface. Power consumption is at 122 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 18.79 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA Quadro RTX 6000.
