NVIDIA GeForce FX 5600 Image NVIDIA NV31 A1 Image
The GeForce FX 5600 was a graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in March 2003. Built on the 130 nm process, and based on the NV31 A1 graphics processor, the card supports DirectX 9.0a. The NV31 A1 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 135 mm² and 80 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 325 MHz, memory is running at 275 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, its power draw is rated at 37 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x VGA, 1x S-Video. GeForce FX 5600 is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 8x interface.
