NVIDIA Quadro FX 3450: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Quadro FX 3450

Summary

NVIDIA started Quadro FX 3450 sales 28 July 2005 at a recommended price of $135.75. This is Curie architecture desktop card based on 130 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 256 MB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 32 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is Single-slot card attached via PCIe 1.0 x16 interface. 1x 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 83 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 0.68 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.
