I had a CGA "double board" that did 640x400 or 640x200 by more colors.
It was not the same as this one, but might have been internally similar.

But I don't remember ATI premium CGA.
ATI had some interesting EGA boards, including one that had an add-on 
that included the mid-board connector for Compaq luggable internal video!
Otherwise, you were stuck with Compaq CGA or Compaq EGA.
