NVIDIA GeForce Go 7800: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce Go 7800


NVIDIA started GeForce Go 7800 sales 3 March 2006. This is Curie architecture notebook card based on 110 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 0.3 GB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.1 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 35.2 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 1.0 x16 interface. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 35 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 0.72 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
