ATI started Mach 64 GX sales 1 January 1995. This is a desktop card based on 600 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 0 GB of VRAM memory clocked at 0.01 GHz are supplied, and together with 64 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 80.0 MB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 1-slot card attached via PCI interface

The Mach 64 GX was a graphics card by ATI, launched in January 1995. Built on the 600 nm process, and based on the Mach64 GX graphics processor, in its 210888GX variant, the card supports DirectX None. The Mach64 GX graphics processor is a relatively small chip with a die area of only 90 mm² and 1 million transistors. It features 1 pixel shaders and 0 vertex shaders, 0 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 2 MB VRAM memory on the card, which are connected using a 64-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 10 MHz, memory is running at 10 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, its power draw is not exactly known. Display outputs include: 1x DB13W3. Mach 64 GX is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI interface.
