NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960A: specs and benchmarks
- Interface MXM-B (3.0)
- Core clock speed 1029 MHz
- Max video memory 2 GB
- Memory type GDDR5
- Memory clock speed 5012 MHz
- Maximum resolution
NVIDIA started GeForce GTX 960A sales 13 March 2015. This is Maxwell architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 2 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 5.01 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 80.19 GB/s.
Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via MXM-B (3.0) interface. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 75 Watt.
It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at
of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.

Non-gaming benchmark performance of GeForce GTX 960A. Note that overall benchmark performance is measured in points in 0-100 range.
This is our combined benchmark performance rating. We are regularly improving our combining algorithms, but if you find some perceived inconsistencies, feel free to speak up in comments section, we usually fix problems quickly.
This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.
