ATI Graphics Vantage

ATI Graphics Vantage Image ATI 38800-1 Image
The Graphics Vantage was a graphics card by ATI, launched in January 1992. Built on the 800 nm process, and based on the 38800-1 graphics processor, the card supports DirectX None. The 38800-1 graphics processor is a relatively small chip with a die area of only 90 mm². It features 1 pixel shaders and 0 vertex shaders, 0 texture mapping units and 1 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 1 MB DRAM memory on the card, which are connected using a 32-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 10 MHz, memory is running at 10 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, its power draw is not exactly known. Display outputs include: 1x VGA. Graphics Vantage is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI interface.
