The GeForce GTS 250 was a performance-segment graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in March 2009. Built on the 55 nm process, and based on the G92B graphics processor, in its G92-426-B1 variant, the card supports DirectX 11.1. Even though it supports DirectX 11, the feature level is only 10_0, which can be problematic with many DirectX 11 & DirectX 12 titles. The G92B graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 260 mm² and 754 million transistors. It features 128 shading units, 64 texture mapping units, and 16 ROPs. NVIDIA has paired 1,024 MB GDDR3 memory with the GeForce GTS 250, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 675 MHz, memory is running at 1008 MHz.
Being a dual-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250 draws power from 1x 6-pin power connector, with power draw rated at 150 W maximum. Display outputs include: 2x DVI. GeForce GTS 250 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 2.0 x16 interface. The card measures 229 mm in length, and features a dual-slot cooling solution. Its price at launch was 199 US Dollars.
