P231 NVIDIA QUADRO NVS 280 AGP Video Card Review
Feature Rich 2D Multi-Monitor Graphics
The P231 NVIDIA QUADRO NVS 280 AGP Video Card delivers unprecedented performance and stability for all your business graphics solutions. This AGP Video Card is powered by the NVIDIA Quadro NVS 280 chipset, 64 MB memory and comes equipped with a DMS-59 connector. It features Microsoft DirectX 9.0 and OpenGL 4.1 support and provides a maximum digital display support of 1600 x 1200!
Being a single-slot card, the NVIDIA Quadro NVS 280 AGP does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is rated at 13 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x DMS-59. Quadro NVS 280 PCI is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI interface. The card measures 168 mm in length, and features a single-slot cooling solution. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 275 MHz, memory is running at 250 MHz.
The NV34B 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 2 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 paired 64 MB DDR memory with the Quadro NVS 280 PCI, which are connected using a 64-bit memory interface.
