The FireGL V5100 was a professional graphics card by ATI, launched in May 2004. Built on the 130 nm process, and based on the R423 graphics processor, in its R423 GL-SE variant, the card supports DirectX 9.0b. The R423 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 289 mm² and 160 million transistors. It features 12 pixel shaders and 6 vertex shaders, 12 texture mapping units and 12 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 256-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 450 MHz, memory is running at 350 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the ATI FireGL V5100 does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is not exactly known. Display outputs include: 2x DVI, 1x S-Video. FireGL V5100 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 1.0 x16 interface. The card measures 211 mm in length, and features a single-slot cooling solution.
