ATI Mobility FireGL 9000 Image ATI M9 Image
The Mobility FireGL 9000 was a professional graphics card by ATI, launched in January 2002. Built on the 150 nm process, and based on the M9 graphics processor, in its M9-CSP64GL variant, the card supports DirectX 8.1. The M9 graphics processor is a relatively small chip with a die area of only 81 mm² and 36 million transistors. It features 4 pixel shaders and 1 vertex shaders, 4 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 200 MHz.
Its power draw is not exactly known. Mobility FireGL 9000 is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 4x interface.
