The Quadro NVS 280 PCIe was a professional graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in May 2004. Built on the 150 nm process, and based on the NV37 graphics processor, in its NV37 GL variant, the card supports DirectX 9.0a. The NV37 graphics processor is a relatively small chip with a die area of only 91 mm² and 45 million transistors. It features 4 pixel shaders and 1 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 64 MB DDR memory on the card, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 275 MHz, memory is running at 250 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the NVIDIA Quadro NVS 280 PCIe does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is rated at 13 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x DMS-59. Quadro NVS 280 PCIe is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 1.0 x16 interface. The card measures 168 mm in length, and features a single-slot cooling solution.
