NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960A: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960A

Summary

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 11.10 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.
