The GeForce GTX 870M was a graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in March 2014. Built on the 28 nm process, and based on the GK104 graphics processor, in its N15E-GT-A2 variant, the card supports DirectX 12.0. The GK104 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 294 mm² and 3,540 million transistors. Unlike the fully unlocked GeForce GTX 680 Mac Edition, which uses the same GPU but has all 1536 shaders enabled, NVIDIA has disabled some shading units on the GeForce GTX 870M to reach the product's target shader count. It features 1344 shading units, 112 texture mapping units and 24 ROPs. NVIDIA has placed 3,072 MB GDDR5 memory on the card, which are connected using a 192-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 941 MHz, which can be boosted up to 967 MHz, memory is running at 1250 MHz.
Being a mxm module card, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 870M does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is rated at 100 W maximum. This device has no display connectivity, as it is not designed to have monitors connected to it.
