ATI Radeon HD 2900 GT: specs and benchmarks

ATI Radeon HD 2900 GT

Summary

ATI started Radeon HD 2900 GT sales 6 November 2007. This is TeraScale architecture desktop card based on 80 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 256 MB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.6 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 51.2 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is Dual-slot card attached via PCIe 1.0 x16 interface. 1x 8-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 150 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 1.35 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.
