NVIDIA GeForce GT 545 Image NVIDIA GF116 Image
The GeForce GT 545 was a mid-range graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in May 2011. Built on the 40 nm process, and based on the GF116 graphics processor, in its GF116-400-A1 variant, the card supports DirectX 12.0. The GF116 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 238 mm² and 1,170 million transistors. Unlike the fully unlocked GeForce GTX 550 Ti, which uses the same GPU but has all 192 shaders enabled, NVIDIA has disabled some shading units on the GeForce GT 545 to reach the product's target shader count. It features 144 shading units, 24 texture mapping units and 16 ROPs. NVIDIA has placed 1,536 MB DDR3 memory on the card, which are connected using a 192-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 720 MHz, memory is running at 800 MHz.
We recommend the NVIDIA GeForce GT 545 for gaming with highest details at resolutions up to, and including, 800x600.
Being a single-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce GT 545 does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is rated at 70 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x HDMI, 1x VGA. GeForce GT 545 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. The card measures 145 mm in length, and features a single-slot cooling solution. Its price at launch was 149 US Dollars.
