The Mobility Radeon 9000 was a graphics card by ATI, launched in September 2002. Built on the 150 nm process, and based on the M9 graphics processor, in its M9-CSP32 variant, the card supports DirectX 8.1. The M9 graphics processor is a relatively small chip with a die area of only 81 mm² and 36 million transistors. It features 4 pixel shaders and 1 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 32 MB DDR memory on the card, which are connected using a 64-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 240 MHz, memory is running at 200 MHz.
Its power draw is not exactly known. This device has no display connectivity, as it is not designed to have monitors connected to it. Mobility Radeon 9000 is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 4x interface.
