The GeForce FX 5600 Ultra was a performance 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. 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 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 350 MHz, memory is running at 350 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce FX 5600 Ultra draws power from 1x Molex power connectors, 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 191 mm in length, and features a single-slot cooling solution. Its price at launch was 199 US Dollars.
