Graphics Previous page Next page. Before moving on to the intricacies of the new architecture, we list the technical spec list table of the three new Radeon X series graphics cards that we have evaluated to bring you this article: CrossFire support for all models. Further up the ladder, we have the Radeon X XT. The dual-link DVI output capabilities of the Avivo display engine will team up with a new, more powerful compositing chip on the master cards to make this happen. The first thing that people question when they are looking for a new card is just how well it runs in their favorite game.

Introduction With our recent architecture and feature set coverage over the ATI Radeon X series launch, we were a little bit light on the performance numbers.

This design allows memory accesses to be far quicker though lower latency by virtue of the smaller distance the signals need to move through the GPU, and by increasing the number of banks per DRAM. ATI Technologies products Video cards. The test system that we employed is the one used for our initial tests of the hardware.

Introduction ATI is launching today their new series of graphic chips based on a new architecture, which we will be explaining its main features in this article.

Archived from the original on May 7, From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. X was quickly replaced by X atk of its delayed release. The problem had been almost random in how it affected the prototype chips, making it quite difficult to finally identify. There is actually a fifth stop, one that is significantly less complex, designed for the PCI Express interface and video input.


See article on R’s pixel shaders. The Radeon X video cards, that included a R, were released with a delay of several months because ATI engineers discovered a bug within the GPU in a very late stage of the development.

This page was last edited on 8 Mayat The X series has two parts, which are quite different with regards to performance. A staggering million transistors are found on the R core, equaling and surpassing many CPUs in terms of transistor count.

However, these are the models eeries we had access today and should represent the more popular ones that ATI is focusing.

Ring bus memory controller on Radeon X and X series. New anti-aliasing adaptive anti-aliasing and anisotropic filter high quality anisotropic filter a.

Our expanded tests include the games mentioned in our earlier coverage, the much requested Battlefield 2, and we illustrate the stellar way in which the new X series handles enabling 4xAA on the games that we tested. I expect that ATI’s board partners will discount somewhat from the list price, so the comparison seems apt. The Radeon X series using the core was introduced xti October 5,and competed primarily against nVidia’s GeForce series. The RV has a 3: Rather than fill out some of the tests and update the article, we decided to take a little more time and do it up right.


Like its predecessor X, the R chip carries 4 “quads” 4 pipelines eachwhich means it has similar texturing capability if at the same clock speed as its ancestor, and the NVIDIA series. Atti of the cards, including the X XL, should be available todayif all goes according to plan. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment. Retrieved 23 Eeries Hopefully, we will be able to shed some light on the issue here.

Its advantage over X is both lower power consumption and heat output. Retrieved from ” https: These chips basically use 1 “quad” referring to 4 pipelines of a R, whereas the faster boards at just more of these “quads”.

Steam names the best-selling games of In each series there are sti models being launched and we will explain each one of them on the following pages.

ATI Radeon X Series – Hardware Secrets

We will look at resolutions from x up to x and antialiasing tests will be included where possible. Full time bit floating point precision. As the letters go to the top of the screen, they become fuzzy and hard to read.
