NVIDIA NVS 5400M: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA NVS 5400M

Summary

NVIDIA started NVS 5400M sales 1 June 2012. This is Fermi architecture notebook card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 2 GB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.8 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 28.8 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via MXM interface. Power consumption is at 35 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 4.01 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
