All of them in the high-end range where one is ATI’s new flagship and where another is in the middle of that high-end range. Only a few percent of the market is actually in that high-end range. We’ve seen a plague of driver optimizations from manufacturers. Graphics Previous page Next page. ATI worked hard to finish up its new 80 nanometer products and despite a delay of all the 80 nanometer chips, it is finally ready in good quantities.

The Prologue Hey everyone, so last month ATi introduced a couple of new cards. LG HU85L projector needs but two inches to cast a 90″ picture.

ATI is aiming to correct these availability problems and bring a little more performance to the X series with a pair of new graphics chips, code-named R and R The R and R aren’t revolutionary by any means, but ATI has brought x85 notable changes to each of them. Always have the fastest card, that’s what a graphics card manufacturer always has in the back of his head.

Steam names the best-selling games of ATI remained clear of such questionable “tricks” Performance per mm platinu. Exciting times in the graphics industry you ask? For the R chip itself, the big change is in power management.

It wasn’t too long ago that a rather big discussion in the industry that a image filtering technology called Trilinear filtering was optimized by NVIDIA with the help of a mixture of filtering technologies Brilinear.


Like the R, the R is manufactured by TSMC on its low-k nm fab process, but the R and raddon supporting cast have been tweaked and tuned to reach higher clock speeds more easily and reliably.

The first products based on these chips will be platinmu Radeon X XT and X XT Platinum Edition, and we’ve had our grubby little hands on one of these cards long enough to benchmark it.

Here’s a brief overview of how ATI will be using these new chips in actual products. ATYthe global leader in PC graphics, today broadened its offerings for PC gamers and extended its performance lead with the introduction of a family of powerful new graphics processors.

The Radeon X Pro for example is such a product. Oh, sure, the streets aren’t exactly awash in GeForce Ultras, but the Platinum Edition has been brutally scarce.

Features, specifications dt that pricetag equals performance and performance is what this game is all about. Instead of dynamic clock gating and a big-ass fan, though, the R gets a bit of a die shrink courtesy of TSMC’s rsdeon fab process.

Also, leading OEMs and system builders from around the world will soon announce systems which include the new visual processors. Like the R and R, the R has 16 pixel pipelines and six vertex shader engines. That 80nm process ensures cheaper production of the silicon and more importantly less heat and likely lower graphics core voltages. Customize The Tech Report You are confused aren’t you?

Users can simultaneously view on analog and digital monitors, including TV or HDTV, for the ultimate gaming, multimedia and applications multitasking experience. Both of the Radeon X cards will use a single-slot cooler and require no external power plug at least on PCI Express versions. This change, like all the others to the R, is intended to bring higher clock speeds with less fuss, so that supply of Rbased cards might actually be able to keep up with demand.


Speaking as a journalist I have to admit that the so called optimizations made our job very hard as you cannot compare oranges with apples eh? It’s never been any different though, yet it is more and more difficult for us journalists to test these cards. What’s new then you are asking?

However, not all has been roses.

In intense 3D gaming and benchmarking sessions, even with relatively warm ambient temperatures, the X XT PE was generally quieter than a GeForce Ultra, which isn’t bad company to keep.

The complete list of resolutions depends on the driver version and operating system. Atu Christmas from The Tech Report staff!
