The Radeon X1800 XL was a graphics card by ATI, launched in October 2005. Built on the 90 nm process, and based on the R520 graphics processor, in its R520 XL variant, the card supports DirectX 9.0c. The R520 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 288 mm² and 321 million transistors. It features 16 pixel shaders and 8 vertex shaders, 16 texture mapping units and 16 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 GDDR3 memory on the card, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 500 MHz, memory is running at 500 MHz.
We recommend the ATI Radeon X1800 XL for gaming with highest details at resolutions up to, and including, 1280x720.
