NVIDIA Quadro NVS 280 AGP Image NVIDIA NV34 A1 Image
The Quadro NVS 280 AGP was a professional graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in May 2004. 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 64 MB DDR memory on the card, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 275 MHz, memory is running at 250 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, its power draw is rated at 13 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x DMS-59. Quadro NVS 280 AGP is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 8x interface. The card measures 168 mm in length, and features a single-slot cooling solution.
