Inno3D Tornado GeForceFX 5200

The Inno3D Tornado GeForceFX 5200 has 128 MB DDR memory (128 bit) from Samsung, with an access time of 5 ns (Samsung specification: 200 MHz max. (400 DDR)). The board is clocked using NVIDIA's reference specifications of 250 MHz core and 400 MHz memory clocks.

Innovision uses a brown and black PCB. The card is cooled with a large, silver, passive heat sink that has no problems dealing with the heat emitted by the FX5200 chip. Its huge advantage: absolutely no fan noise.
