NVIDIA GeForce 315M Image NVIDIA GT218 Image
The GeForce 315M was a graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in January 2011. Built on the 40 nm process, and based on the GT218 graphics processor, in its N11M-GE variant, the card supports DirectX 10.1. The GT218 graphics processor is a relatively small chip with a die area of only 57 mm² and 260 million transistors. It features 16 shading units, 8 texture mapping units and 4 ROPs. NVIDIA has placed 512 MB GDDR3 memory on the card, which are connected using a 64-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 606 MHz, memory is running at 800 MHz.
We recommend the NVIDIA GeForce 315M for gaming with highest details at resolutions up to, and including, 800x600.
Its power draw is rated at 14 W maximum. GeForce 315M is connected to the rest of the system using a PCIe 2.0 x16 interface.
