NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M technical specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GTX 860M sales 10 March 2014. This is a Kepler architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 2 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 2.5 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 80.0 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is IGP card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. An additional None power connector is required, and power consumption is at 75 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 16.15 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA TITAN Xp.

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.
