NVIDIA Quadro FX 500 Image NVIDIA NV34 A1 Image
The Quadro FX 500 was a professional graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in May 2003. Built on the 150 nm process, and based on the NV34 A1 graphics processor, in its GL variant, the card supports DirectX 9.0a. The NV34 A1 graphics processor is a relatively small chip with a die area of only 91 mm² and 45 million transistors. It features 4 pixel shaders and 1 vertex shaders, 4 texture mapping units and 4 ROPs. Due to the lack of unified shaders you will not be able to run recent games at all (which require unified shader/DX10+ support). NVIDIA has placed 128 MB DDR memory on the card, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 270 MHz, memory is running at 240 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, its power draw is not exactly known. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x VGA. Quadro FX 500 is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 8x interface.
