The Radeon DDR MAXX was a graphics card by ATI, launched on June 1st, 2000. Built on the 180 nm process, and based on the Rage 6 graphics processor, in its 215R6WASA12 variant, the card supports DirectX 7.0. Since Radeon DDR MAXX does not support DirectX 11 or DirectX 12, it might not be able to run all the latest games. The Rage 6 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 115 mm² and 30 million transistors. Radeon DDR MAXX combines two graphics processors to increase performance. It features 2 pixel shaders and 1 vertex shader 6 texture mapping units, and 2 ROPs, per GPU. 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 MB DDR memory with the Radeon DDR MAXX, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface per GPU (each GPU manages 32 MB). The GPU is operating at a frequency of 148 MHz, memory is running at 148 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the ATI Radeon DDR MAXX draws power from 1x Molex power connector, with power draw not exactly known. Display outputs include: 2x VGA. Radeon DDR MAXX is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 2x interface.
