ATI FireGL 8700
The FireGL 8700 was a professional graphics card by ATI, launched in August 2001. Built on the 150 nm process, and based on the R200 graphics processor, in its R200 GL variant, the card supports DirectX 8.1. The R200 graphics processor is a relatively small chip with a die area of only 68 mm² and 60 million transistors. It features 4 pixel shaders and 2 vertex shaders, 8 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). ATI has placed 64 MB DDR memory on the card, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 250 MHz, memory is running at 270 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the ATI FireGL 8700 does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is not exactly known. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x VGA. FireGL 8700 is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 4x interface.
