The GeForce FX 5700 was a graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in October 2003. Built on the 130 nm process, and based on the NV36 graphics processor, 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 DDR memory on the card, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 425 MHz, memory is running at 250 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce FX 5700 does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is rated at 25 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x VGA, 1x S-Video. GeForce FX 5700 is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 8x interface.
