Chaintech Apogee FX-30

nVidia released the GeForce FX 5200 Ultra on 6 March 2003, along with the regular 5200, the 5600 (and Ultra) and 5800 (and Ultra).

In technical terms the FX 5200 Ultra is slightly different than the FX 5600, but performance wise they are on pretty much the same level. The 5200 chip has been made on a 150nm manufacturing process instead of 130nm for the 5600 and features like IntelliSample aren't available.

I think it's odd that nVidia released the 5200 Ultra because it is competing with it's own 'brother'; the 5600. Back in the day you would either (and still) buy a GeForce 4 Ti or a GeForce FX 5600 if you wanted to be in the middle performance segment. Probably nVidia quickly saw that the 5200 Ultra was unnecessary because it wasn't for sale for a long time. Along with the FX 5800 Ultra, the FX 5200 Ultra belong to the least common GeForce FX cards.
