ATI FireGL X2-256

ATI FireGL X2-256 Image ATI R360 Image
The FireGL X2-256 was a professional graphics card by ATI, launched in March 2003. Built on the 150 nm process, and based on the R360 graphics processor, in its GL variant, the card supports DirectX 9.0. The R360 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 218 mm² and 117 million transistors. It features 8 pixel shaders and 4 vertex shaders, 8 texture mapping units and 8 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). ATI has placed 256 MB DDR2 memory on the card, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 380 MHz, memory is running at 350 MHz.
We recommend the ATI FireGL X2-256 for gaming with highest details at resolutions up to, and including, 800x600.
Being a single-slot card, its power draw is not exactly known. Display outputs include: 2x DVI, 1x S-Video. FireGL X2-256 is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 8x interface.
