NVIDIA GeForce2 PRO Image NVIDIA NV15 A5 Image
The GeForce2 PRO was a performance graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in December 2000. Built on the 150 nm process, and based on the NV15 A5 graphics processor, in its PRO variant, the card supports DirectX 7.0. The NV15 A5 graphics processor is a relatively small chip with a die area of only 81 mm² and 25 million transistors. It features 4 pixel shaders and 0 vertex shaders, 8 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 64 MB DDR memory on the card, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 200 MHz, memory is running at 200 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce2 PRO does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is not exactly known. Display outputs include: 1x VGA. GeForce2 PRO is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 4x interface. The card measures 183 mm in length, and features a single-slot cooling solution. Its price at launch was 329 US Dollars.
