ATI Mobility Radeon 9550

The Mobility Radeon 9550 was a graphics card by ATI, launched in June 2004. Built on the 130 nm process, and based on the M12 graphics processor, the card supports DirectX 9.0. The M12 graphics processor is a relatively small chip with a die area of only 92 mm² and 76 million transistors. It features 4 pixel shaders and 2 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 64-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 250 MHz, memory is running at 243 MHz.
Its power draw is not exactly known. Mobility Radeon 9550 is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 4x interface.
