The GeForce 6700 XL was a graphics card by NVIDIA, launched on November 14th, 2004. Built on the 110 nm process, and based on the NV43 graphics processor, the card supports DirectX 9.0c. Since GeForce 6700 XL does not support DirectX 11 or DirectX 12, it might not be able to run all the latest games. The NV43 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 154 mm² and 146 million transistors. It features 8 pixel shaders and 3 vertex shaders, 8 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 paired 128 MB GDDR3 memory with the GeForce 6700 XL, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 525 MHz, memory is running at 550 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce 6700 XL draws power from 1x 6-pin power connector, with power draw not exactly known. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x VGA. GeForce 6700 XL is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 1.0 x16 interface.
