The GeForce 315 OEM was a graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in April 2011. Built on the 40 nm process, and based on the GT215 graphics processor, in its GT215-450-A2 variant, the card supports DirectX 10.1. The GT215 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 144 mm² and 727 million transistors. Unlike the fully unlocked GeForce GT 340 OEM, which uses the same GPU but has all 96 shaders enabled, NVIDIA has disabled some shading units on the GeForce 315 OEM to reach the product's target shader count. It features 48 shading units, 16 texture mapping units and 4 ROPs. NVIDIA has placed 256 MB DDR2 memory on the card, which are connected using a 64-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 506 MHz, memory is running at 350 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce 315 OEM does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is rated at 33 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x HDMI, 1x VGA. GeForce 315 OEM is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 2.0 x16 interface. The card measures 168 mm in length, and features a single-slot cooling solution.
