The Riva TNT2 Ultra was a performance graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in March 1999. Built on the 250 nm process, and based on the NV5 B5 graphics processor, the card supports DirectX 6.0. The NV5 B5 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 placed 32 MB SDR memory on the card, 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.
