ATI Radeon 9800 XXL Image ATI R360 Image
The Radeon 9800 XXL was a graphics card by ATI, launched in October 2003. 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 128 MB DDR memory on the card, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 390 MHz, memory is running at 338 MHz.
We recommend the ATI Radeon 9800 XXL for gaming with highest details at resolutions up to, and including, 800x600.
Being a single-slot card, the ATI Radeon 9800 XXL does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is not exactly known. Display outputs include: 2x VGA, 1x S-Video. Radeon 9800 XXL is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 8x interface.
