NVIDIA Quadro NVS 285 Image NVIDIA NV44 A2 Image
The Quadro NVS 285 was a professional graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in June 2006. Built on the 110 nm process, and based on the NV44 A2 graphics processor, in its QD-NVS285-N-A2 variant, the card supports DirectX 9.0c. The NV44 A2 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 110 mm² and 75 million transistors. It features 4 pixel shaders and 3 vertex shaders, 4 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 128 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 285 does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is rated at 18 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x DMS-59. Quadro NVS 285 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCIe 1.0 x16 interface. The card measures 168 mm in length, and features a single-slot cooling solution.
