The Radius PrecisionColor Pro 24AC is a 7" NuBus card compatible with both 680x0- and PowerPC-based Macs. With ROM version 1.0, the card is only compatible with Mac OS versions from 7.1 up to (and including) 7.5.2; with ROM version 1.1 the card is compatible with Mac OS versions from 7.1 up to 8.6. Mac OS 9 compatibility for this card has not been verified.

- It is the same card as the Apple Display Card 24AC. The 24AC is generally very hard to find and, in my opinion, overpriced relative to its Radius sibling. eBay prices for this card are generally in the US$50 range.
- QuickColor 3.3 (part of RadiusWare 3.3) works fine under any Mac OS up to and including Mac OS 9.1.
- Dynamic Desktop crashes the Mac OS at startup when installed on Mac OS 8.6 or higher. SwitchRes (shareware) works to change resolutions instead.
