ATI Radeon 9800 Pro Mac Edition AGP 128MB W/ Box Power Mac G4 Works NOS Rebuilt .

Genuine Mac Edition Graphics Card - Not a flashed PC Card . Tested and works great in Mac OS X .

This is the fastest factory made OS X gaming card you can install in a PowerMac G4 . Top of the line .

This is a New Old Stock graphics card that I rebuilt because the factory GPU chip thermal paste almost entirely evaporated
after being in storage for two decades . Thermal paste needs to be moist in order to work .

A new layer of premium 8 year durability Arctic MX4 thermal paste was applied on the GPU chip .

This card was thoroughly tested at load in a Power Mac G4 Digital Audio running Mac OS X 10.4.11 Tiger .

It passed a 16 hour stress test using two instances of a Mac OS ATI written version of FurMark - the famous Windows GPU power virus . You can see in the included listing video a part of this test of the Dynamic Fur Demo ( Furry Jaguars ) . It's really a cool test and easily places the card at load . During this test , two concurrent 23" displays were connected at 1920 x 1200 resolution at around 60 Hz ) . The card passed the stress test with flying colors and no artifacts were observed .

Rebuilt NOS Card and includes original factory packaging .

4x/2x AGP Interface slot with DVI , VGA and S-video outputs . DVI and VGA outputs tested . S-video not tested .

Requires :
Mac OS X 10.2.5 or later . Does not officially support OS9 .
Power Mac G4 with an AGP Slot .

Included in listing :
Genuine Mac Edition ATI 9800 128MB AGP graphics card .
Factory Box and inserts .
Factory Molex Booster Power Cable .
Factory Getting Started Guide Book .
Factory DVI to VGA adapter .
Factory Mac OS X Driver Installation Disk .

Not Included :
S video adapter .
S video cable .

Most Mac 9800s you see for sale are compatible only in Power Mac G5 systems . This is the rare G4 only compatible card .

This card is better than any brand new old stock units still available ( and which also cost north of $1,000 these days ) .

This card is hallmarked , an ink stamp which I traditionally apply to my rebuilt systems and components .

All pictures actual .

Serial number recorded .
