ATI Radeon 9200 AGP Mac Edition
Physical Specs and Compatibility
The Radeon 9200 is an AGP 8x card compatible with AGP 2x, 4x, and 8x slots. It was never used as a standard video card on any Mac, and most online information covers the PCI version of the card, not the AGP version.
The Daystar Store sells a special modified AGP 2x/4x version of this card for $135.
Flashed AGP 8x video cards are not compatible with the Mystic/Gigabit Ethernet, Digital Audio, Cube, Quicksilver, and Mirror Drive Door Power Mac G4 without modification. As explained by The Mac Elite, Apple uses pins 3 and 11 on the back of the card to power ADC monitors. These pins must be disabled or your Mac will not boot with the card installed. Full details and instructions are on the Mac Elite website.
