NVIDIA GeForce Go 7950 GTX: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce Go 7950 GTX


NVIDIA started GeForce Go 7950 GTX sales 12 October 2006. This is Curie architecture notebook card based on 90 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 0.5 GB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.4 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 44.8 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via MXM-III interface. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 45 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 1.63 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
