GeForce 830M 2GB Review
GeForce 830M 2GB is a middle-class mobile graphics card. It is based on 28nm GM108 Core of the Maxwell architecture.
The Maxwell architecture features many improvements and amongst them is the extremely large L2 Cache which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.
GeForce 840M 2GB comes with a cut-down variant of the GM108 Core and thus offers 256 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs, on a 64-bit of standard DDR3. While the central unit runs at 1029MHz and goes up to 1124MHz, in Turbo Mode, the memory clock operates at 900MHz. It has a rated TDP board of around 25W.
Its performance proves to be way better than its predecessors and to surpass the DDR3 variant of the higher positioned GeForce GT 740M.
Therefore, GeForce 830M 2GB should be able to run all of 2014's games at medium or high settings, using a 720p resolution.
This card should be paired with a decent Dual Core Processor at least 8GB of RAM.
