The GeForce FX 5700 Ultra was a performance graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in October 2003. Built on the 130 nm process, and based on the NV36 graphics processor, in its FX 5700 Ultra variant, the card supports DirectX 9.0a. The NV36 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 125 mm² and 82 million transistors. It features 4 pixel shaders and 3 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 GDDR2 memory on the card, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 475 MHz, memory is running at 450 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce FX 5700 Ultra draws power from 1x Molex power connectors, with power draw rated at 46 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x VGA, 1x S-Video. GeForce FX 5700 Ultra is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 8x interface. The card measures 229 mm in length, and features a single-slot cooling solution. Its price at launch was 199 US Dollars.
