The GeForce FX 5600 XT PCI was a graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in March 2003. Built on the 130 nm process, and based on the NV31 A1 graphics processor, in its 5600 XT variant, the card supports DirectX 9.0a. The NV31 A1 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 135 mm² and 80 million transistors. It features 4 pixel shaders and 2 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 64 MB DDR memory on the card, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 235 MHz, memory is running at 200 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce FX 5600 XT PCI does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is not exactly known. Display outputs include: 1x DVI. GeForce FX 5600 XT PCI is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI interface.
