The GeForce FX 5200 was a graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in March 2003. Built on the 150 nm process, and based on the NV34 A2 graphics processor, the card supports DirectX 9.0a. The NV34 A2 graphics processor is a relatively small chip with a die area of only 91 mm² and 45 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 250 MHz, memory is running at 200 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is not exactly known. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x VGA, 1x S-Video. GeForce FX 5200 is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 8x interface.
