NVIDIA NVS 315: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA NVS 315

Summary

NVIDIA started NVS 315 sales 10 March 2013 at a recommended price of $159 . This is Fermi 2.0 architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 1 GB of DDR3 memory clocked at 1.75 GHz are supplied, and together with 64 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 14 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 1-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 145 mm. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 19 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 2.83 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
