For avid Mac gamers, the Radeon X800 XT has advanced programmable shaders that provide an extremely smooth and responsive high-definition (HD) gaming experience, allowing players to play the most demanding game titles at the highest possible settings. The X800 XT also makes use of ATI's latest-generation image enhancements, filtering, compression, and acceleration technologies to establish a new standard in visual realism and graphics performance. Not just for gaming, this graphics card lets you expand your creative range with more speed and efficiency, using content creation software titles such as Motion, Modo, and Maya without constraints. With the Radeon X800, you will experience faster rendering of visual effects at higher resolutions, and an increase in productivity with quicker switching between screens, as well as improved web graphics and monitor performance.
With 16 parallel pixel pipelines, and six parallel vertex processing pipelines, the Radeon X800 XT Mac Edition delivers over twice the performance of its highly acclaimed predecessor, the Radeon 9800 Pro. ATI has improved this card over the 9800 Pro to the tune of a 150-percent faster pixel fill rate, a 50-percent gain on memory bandwidth, a 90-percent gain on geometry performance, and a floating point operations-per-second gain of 140-percent. The X800 XT Mac delivers unbelievable acceleration in a quiet, cool, single-slot AGP Pro 8x solution, with a variable speed, fan-sink cooling mechanism that leaves all of your PCI slots available for other, more important uses, and no need for an external power cable because of its efficient design.
The X800 XT Mac is equipped with workstation-class dual digital display connections capable of powering any combination of digital flat panel or analog displays simultaneously, with independent resolutions and refresh rates. With one dual-link DVI and native connectability to the Apple Display Connector (ADC), the Radeon X800 XT supports ultra-high resolution LCDs, such as a single 30-inch Apple Cinema HD Display (2560 x 1600 resolution), as well as any legacy Apple Digital Display. Of course, you can also use both of these ports to connect standard VGA-type analog displays via adapters. (One DVI-to-VGA adapter included.)
The Radeon X800 also features high-precision 32-bit per-channel rendering, 256-bit quad-channel GDDR3 memory interface, and 3Dc technology that works with any two-channel data format providing high-quality 4:1 Normal Map Compression. This graphics card includes SmartShader 2.0 HD which has 1,536 instructions and 16 textures per rendering pass, facing register for two-sided lighting, and from 32-bit to 128-bit per-pixel floating point color formats. The X800 also includes SmoothVision 2.0 HD with state-of-the-art, full-scene anti-aliasing, and advanced anisotropic filtering.
ATI's Radeon X800 XT Mac Edition requires a Power Mac 5, 512 MB of memory, and a CD-ROM drive for the installation software. The X800 XT supports Mac OS X 10.3.6 or higher, and comes with ATI's hassle-free, manufacturer's three-year limited warranty.
