NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 420

NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 420 Image NVIDIA NV17 A3 Image
The GeForce4 MX 420 was a graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in February 2002. Built on the 150 nm process, and based on the NV17 A3 graphics processor, the card supports DirectX 8.0. The NV17 A3 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 64 MB SDR memory on the card, which are connected using a 64-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 250 MHz, memory is running at 166 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, its power draw is not exactly known. Display outputs include: 1x VGA, 1x S-Video. GeForce4 MX 420 is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 4x interface.
