The Radeon 9550 was a graphics card by ATI, launched in October 2003. Built on the 130 nm process, and based on the RV350 graphics processor, in its RV350 LX variant, the card supports DirectX 9.0. The RV350 graphics processor is a relatively small chip with a die area of only 76 mm² and 60 million transistors. It features 4 pixel shaders and 2 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 64 MB DDR memory on the card, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 250 MHz, memory is running at 200 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the ATI Radeon 9550 does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is not exactly known. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x VGA, 1x S-Video. Radeon 9550 is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 8x interface.
