The Quadro NVS 160M was a professional mobile graphics chip by NVIDIA, launched in August 2008. Built on the 65 nm process, and based on the G98 graphics processor, in its NB9M-GS variant, the chip supports DirectX 11.1. Even though it supports DirectX 11, the feature level is only 10_0, which can be problematic with many DirectX 11 & DirectX 12 titles. The G98 graphics processor is a relatively small chip with a die area of only 86 mm² and 210 million transistors. It features 8 shading units, 4 texture mapping units, and 4 ROPs. NVIDIA has paired 256 MB GDDR3 memory with the Quadro NVS 160M, which are connected using a 64-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 580 MHz, memory is running at 700 MHz.
Being a mxm module card, its power draw is rated at 12 W maximum. This device has no display connectivity, as it is not designed to have monitors connected to it. Rather it is intended for use in laptop/notebooks and will use the output of the host mobile device.
