The Graphics Solution was a graphics card by ATI, launched in January 1986. Built on the 800 nm process, and based on the CW16800-A graphics processor, the card does not support DirectX. Since Graphics Solution does not support DirectX 11 or DirectX 12, it might not be able to run all the latest games. The CW16800-A graphics processor is a relatively small chip with a die area of only 90 mm². It features 1 pixel shader and 0 vertex shaders, 0 texture mapping units, and 1 ROP. 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 paired 64 KB DRAM memory with the Graphics Solution, which are connected using a 32-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 10 MHz, memory is running at 5 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, its power draw is not exactly known. This device has no display connectivity, as it is not designed to have monitors connected to it. Graphics Solution is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI interface.
