The NVS 300 was a mid-range professional graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in January 2011. Built on the 40 nm process, and based on the GT218 graphics processor, in its GT218-670-B1 variant, the card supports DirectX 10.1. The GT218 graphics processor is a relatively small chip with a die area of only 57 mm² and 260 million transistors. It features 16 shading units, 8 texture mapping units and 4 ROPs. NVIDIA has placed 512 MB DDR3 memory on the card, which are connected using a 64-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 520 MHz, memory is running at 790 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the NVIDIA NVS 300 does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is rated at 18 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x DMS-59. NVS 300 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 2.0 x16 interface. The card measures 145 mm in length, and features a single-slot cooling solution. Its price at launch was 109 US Dollars.
