ATI Fire GL1: specs and benchmarks

ATI Fire GL1

Summary

ATI started Fire GL1 sales 1 March 1999 at a recommended price of $999. This is IBM architecture desktop card based on 250 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 32 MB of SDR memory clocked at 0.1 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 3.2 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is single-slot card attached via AGP 2x interface.
