ATI Radeon 8500 XT
The Radeon 8500 XT was a graphics card by ATI, launched in June 2002. Built on the 150 nm process, and based on the R250 graphics processor, the card supports DirectX 8.1. The R250 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 128 MB DDR memory on the card, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 300 MHz, memory is running at 300 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, its power draw is rated at 25 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x VGA, 1x S-Video. Radeon 8500 XT is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 4x interface.
