The Radeon VE was a graphics card by ATI, launched in February 2001. Built on the 180 nm process, and based on the Rage 6 graphics processor, in its 215R6LAFA12 variant, the card supports DirectX 7.0. The Rage 6 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 115 mm² and 30 million transistors. It features 1 pixel shaders and 0 vertex shaders, 3 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 32 MB DDR memory on the card, which are connected using a 64-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 183 MHz, memory is running at 183 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the ATI Radeon VE does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is rated at 23 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x VGA, 1x S-Video. Radeon VE is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 4x interface.
