The GeForce FX 5600 Ultra was a performance-segment graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in March 2003. Built on the 130 nm process, and based on the NV31 graphics processor, in its 5600 Ultra variant, the card supports DirectX 9.0a. Since GeForce FX 5600 Ultra does not support DirectX 11 or DirectX 12, it might not be able to run all the latest games. The NV31 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 shader 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 paired 128 MB DDR memory with the GeForce FX 5600 Ultra, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 400 MHz, memory is running at 400 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce FX 5600 Ultra draws power from 1x Molex power connector, with power draw not exactly known. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x VGA, 1x S-Video. GeForce FX 5600 Ultra is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 8x interface. The card measures 190 mm in length, and features a single-slot cooling solution. Its price at launch was 199 US Dollars.
