The Graphics Ultra was a enthusiast-class graphics card by ATI, launched in January 1992. Built on the 800 nm process, and based on the Mach8 graphics processor, in its 38800-1 variant, the card does not support DirectX. The Mach8 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 VRAM 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, the ATI Graphics Ultra does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is not exactly known. Display outputs include: 1x VGA. Graphics Ultra is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI interface. Its price at launch was 899 US Dollars.
