The Radeon 9600 XT was a graphics card by ATI, launched in October 2003. Built on the 130 nm process, and based on the RV360 graphics processor, in its RV360 XT variant, the card supports DirectX 9.0. The RV360 graphics processor is a relatively small chip with a die area of only 92 mm² and 76 million transistors. It features 4 pixel shaders and 2 vertex shaders, 4 texture mapping units and 4 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 128 MB DDR memory on the card, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 500 MHz, memory is running at 300 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the ATI Radeon 9600 XT does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is rated at 22 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x VGA, 1x S-Video. Radeon 9600 XT is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 8x interface.
