NVIDIA GeForce FX 5900 XT Image NVIDIA NV35 Image
The GeForce FX 5900 XT was a graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in May 2003. Built on the 130 nm process, and based on the NV35 graphics processor, the card supports DirectX 9.0a. The NV35 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 207 mm² and 135 million transistors. It features 4 pixel shaders and 3 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 256-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 400 MHz, memory is running at 350 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, its power draw is rated at 35 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x VGA, 1x S-Video. GeForce FX 5900 XT is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 8x interface.
