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

8.11%

of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.
