NVIDIA Quadro NVS 440: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Quadro NVS 440


NVIDIA started Quadro NVS 440 sales 14 February 2006 at a recommended price of $96.99. This is Curie architecture desktop card based on 110 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 2x 128 MB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 0.5 GHz are supplied, and together with 2x 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 2x 8 GB / s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 1-slot card attached via PCIe 1.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 187 mm. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 31 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 0.10 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 SLI Mobile.
