NVIDIA GeForce4 420 Go Image NVIDIA NV17 A5 Image
The GeForce4 420 Go was a graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in February 2002. Built on the 150 nm process, and based on the NV17 A5 graphics processor, the card supports DirectX 8.0. The NV17 A5 graphics processor is a relatively small chip with a die area of only 65 mm² and 29 million transistors. It features 2 pixel shaders and 0 vertex shaders, 4 texture mapping units and 2 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 32 MB DDR memory on the card, which are connected using a 64-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 200 MHz, memory is running at 200 MHz.
Its power draw is not exactly known. GeForce4 420 Go is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 8x interface.
