The GeForce GT 220 was a graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in October 2009. Built on the 40 nm process, and based on the GT216 graphics processor, in its GT216-055-A3 variant, the card supports DirectX 11.1. Even though it supports DirectX 11, the feature level is only 10_1, which can be problematic with many DirectX 11 & DirectX 12 titles. The GT216 graphics processor is a relatively small chip with a die area of only 100 mm² and 486 million transistors. It features 48 shading units, 16 texture mapping units, and 8 ROPs, . NVIDIA has paired 512 MB DDR2 memory with the GeForce GT 220, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 615 MHz, memory is running at 1000 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, its power draw is rated at 58 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x HDMI, 1x VGA. GeForce GT 220 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 2.0 x16 interface. The card measures 168 mm in length, and features a single-slot cooling solution.
