The Rage XL was a professional graphics card by ATI, launched in August 1998. Built on the 350 nm process, and based on the Rage XL graphics processor, the card supports DirectX 6.0. The Rage XL graphics processor is a relatively small chip with a die area of only 80 mm² and 8 million transistors. It features 1 pixel shaders and 0 vertex shaders, 1 texture mapping units and 1 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 8 MB SDR memory on the card, which are connected using a 64-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 125 MHz, memory is running at 83 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the ATI Rage XL does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is not exactly known. Display outputs include: 1x VGA, 1x S-Video. Rage XL is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI interface.
