The GeForce PCX 5900 was a graphics card by NVIDIA, launched on March 17th, 2003. Built on the 130 nm process, and based on the NV35 graphics processor, the card supports DirectX 9.0a. Since GeForce PCX 5900 does not support DirectX 11 or DirectX 12, it might not be able to run all the latest games. The NV35 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 207 mm² and 135 million transistors. It features 4 pixel shaders and 3 vertex shaders, 8 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 paired 128 MB DDR memory with the GeForce PCX 5900, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 350 MHz, memory is running at 275 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce PCX 5900 does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is not exactly known. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x VGA, 1x S-Video. GeForce PCX 5900 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 1.0 x16 interface.
