|On November 18, 2002, nVidia introduced the new GeForce FX graphics chip, formerly known under the code name NV30.
|After the release of top cards and the failure in the Hi-End sector, nVidia decided to urgently turn towards the market of medium-sized video cards (mainstream) and release products that would compete with the ATi RADEON 9500/Pro and RADEON 9200.
It differs from the GeForce FX 5200 card only in higher frequencies and, consequently, slightly higher performance.
|The GeForce FX 5500 was somewhere between the performance levels of the GeForce FX 5200 and the GeForce FX 5600.
|Video cards of the GeForce FX 5600/Ultra series came to replace the outdated GeForce4 Titanium series cards.
|This "accelerated" version of the NV31 was significantly different from the usual one.
|Reduced frequency version of the GeForce FX 5700
|The GeForce FX 5700 is a more "fresh" video card in the series.
|The GeForce FX 5800 chip had the same markings as the GeForce FX 5800 Ultra.
NV35 was not just a release of a new line, which (as it used to be) displaced previous products from the throne, moving them one step lower, but a replacement for the previous product NV30
