ATI Radion
« on: July 05, 2017, 08:11:29 AM »
I saw somewhere where there's a G4 Mac that has ATI Radion where you can play some games under Mac OS 9 with that specific game card. Does anybody out there know what G4 Mac models have that particular game card?

most g4s were available with a radeon option but i dont know of any games which would require a specific type of card (not after the voodoo aera)

Oh, really? That is interesting. I know some games could play on ATI Rage, but some needed Radion so I was wondering about that.
