The Radeon X800 was a graphics card by ATI, launched in December 2004. Built on the 110 nm process, and based on the R430 graphics processor, in its R430 variant, the card supports DirectX 9.0b. Since Radeon X800 does not support DirectX 11 or DirectX 12, it might not be able to run all the latest games. The R430 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 240 mm² and 160 million transistors. It features 12 pixel shaders and 6 vertex shaders, 12 texture mapping units, and 12 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 paired 256 MB DDR memory with the Radeon X800, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 400 MHz, memory is running at 350 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the ATI Radeon X800 does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is rated at 30 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x VGA, 1x S-Video. Radeon X800 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 1.0 x16 interface.
