It's been so many years, but I was thinking the 7200 was a dual RAMDAC card, I.E. it can drive 2 independent displays.

I remember it is faster then the 7000, it think it had 2 more pipelines on the GPU, but I don't know if it was 2 rendering pipelines, or 2 more texture units.

From the picture, it looks like it also has the rage theater chip too, tho there is no Mac support for that chip.

Yes, they are all the same, but some had Single Data Rate Ram, and some had Double Data Rate Ram.

But the Radeon 7000 is a cut down version of the 7200.

The Radeon 7200 is:

2:1:6:2

 Pixel pipelines : Vertex shaders : Texture mapping units : Render output units

the Radeon 7000 is:

1:0:3:1

R100 vs. RV100
