The Radeon X1800 XL was a graphics card by ATI, launched in October 2005. Built on the 90 nm process, and based on the R520 graphics processor, in its R520 XL variant, the card supports DirectX 9.0c. The R520 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 288 mm² and 321 million transistors. It features 16 pixel shaders and 8 vertex shaders, 16 texture mapping units and 16 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 256 MB GDDR3 memory on the card, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 500 MHz, memory is running at 500 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the ATI Radeon X1800 XL draws power from 1x 6-pin power connectors, with power draw rated at 70 W maximum. Display outputs include: 2x DVI, 1x S-Video. Radeon X1800 XL is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 1.0 x16 interface. The card measures 241 mm in length, and features a single-slot cooling solution.
