ATI Radeon 9800 XT Mac Edition
The Radeon 9800 XT Mac Edition was a graphics card by ATI, launched in March 2004. Built on the 150 nm process, and based on the R360 graphics processor, the card supports DirectX 9.0. The R360 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 218 mm² and 117 million transistors. It features 8 pixel shaders and 4 vertex shaders, 8 texture mapping units and 8 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 DDR memory on the card, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 412 MHz, memory is running at 365 MHz.
We recommend the ATI Radeon 9800 XT Mac Edition for gaming with highest details at resolutions up to, and including, 800x600.Being a single-slot card, the ATI Radeon 9800 XT Mac Edition does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is rated at 60 W maximum. Display outputs include: 2x DVI. Radeon 9800 XT Mac Edition is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP Pro 8x interface.
