NVIDIA NVS 5100M: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA NVS 5100M

Summary

NVIDIA started NVS 5100M sales 7 January 2010. This is Tesla 2.0 architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 1 GB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.6 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 25.6 GB / s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via MXM-A (3.0) interface. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 35 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 0.09 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.
