NVIDIA GeForce FX 5500 PCI

NVIDIA GeForce FX 5500 PCI Image NVIDIA NV34 B1 Image
The GeForce FX 5500 PCI was a graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in March 2004. Built on the 140 nm process, and based on the NV34 B1 graphics processor, in its FX 5500 variant, the card supports DirectX 9.0a. The NV34 B1 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 256 MB DDR memory on the card, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 270 MHz, memory is running at 200 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce FX 5500 PCI does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is not exactly known. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x VGA, 1x S-Video. GeForce FX 5500 PCI is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI interface. The card measures 165 mm in length, and features a single-slot cooling solution.
