NVIDIA Vanta LT Image NVIDIA NV6 B5 Image
The Vanta LT was a graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in March 2000. Built on the 250 nm process, and based on the NV6 B5 graphics processor, the card supports DirectX 6.0. The NV6 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 8 MB SDR memory on the card, which are connected using a 64-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 105 MHz, memory is running at 100 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the NVIDIA Vanta LT does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is not exactly known. Display outputs include: 1x VGA. Vanta LT is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 2x interface.
