The Riva TNT2 Ultra was a performance-segment graphics card by NVIDIA, launched on March 15th, 1999. Built on the 250 nm process, and based on the NV5B graphics processor, in its Riva TNT2 Ultra variant, the card supports DirectX 6.0. Since Riva TNT2 Ultra does not support DirectX 11 or DirectX 12, it might not be able to run all the latest games. The NV5B graphics processor is a relatively small chip with a die area of only 90 mm² and 15 million transistors. It features 2 pixel shaders and 0 vertex shaders, 2 texture mapping units, and 2 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 32 MB SDR memory with the Riva TNT2 Ultra, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 150 MHz, memory is running at 183 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the NVIDIA Riva TNT2 Ultra does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is not exactly known. Display outputs include: 1x VGA, 2x S-Video. Riva TNT2 Ultra is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 4x interface. Its price at launch was 299 US Dollars.
