NVIDIA GeForce GT 230M Image NVIDIA GT216 Image
The GeForce GT 230M was a graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in June 2009. Built on the 40 nm process, and based on the GT216 graphics processor, in its N10P-GE-A2 variant, the card supports DirectX 10.1. The GT216 graphics processor is a relatively small chip with a die area of only 100 mm² and 486 million transistors. It features 48 shading units, 16 texture mapping units and 8 ROPs. NVIDIA has placed 1,024 MB GDDR3 memory on the card, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 500 MHz, memory is running at 800 MHz.
We recommend the NVIDIA GeForce GT 230M for gaming with highest details at resolutions up to, and including, 800x600.
Its power draw is rated at 23 W maximum. GeForce GT 230M is connected to the rest of the system using a PCIe 2.0 x16 interface.
