In addition to ring bus, each memory channel now has the granularity of bits, which improves memory efficiency when performing small memory requests. It also gains three extra vertex shaders, bringing the total to 5 units. The RV has a 3: Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment. 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.

Last AMD Catalyst version that officially supports this series, is X was not behind schedule, and was always planned as the “spring refresh” chip. For example, the X uses 4 “quads”.

Multi sampling anti-aliasing vs. CrossFire support for all models. The card was launched on August 23, With chips such as RV and R, where the number of shader units per pipeline triples, the efficiency of pixel shading drops off slightly because these shaders still have the same level of threading resources as the less endowed RV and R This page was last edited on 8 Mayat As is typical for an ATI video card release, a selection of real-time 3D demonstration programs were released at launch.

However, the bottom line is that performance sells video cards. Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing Sign up now Username Password Remember Me. ATI will document its architecture, i.

Radeon HD Series. 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 at make this happen. Retrieved 23 March The Radeon X series using the core was introduced on October 5,and competed primarily against nVidia’s GeForce series. Unlike the X, the X has 16 pixel shader processors as well, and equal ratio of texturing to pixel shading capability.

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. Radeon R5xx Acceleration v. Before moving on to seriex 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: Ato expanded tests include the games mentioned in our earlier coverage, the much requested Battlefield 2, sereis we illustrate the stellar way in which the new X series handles enabling 4xAA on the games that we tested.

These chips basically use 1 “quad” referring to 4 pipelines of a R, whereas the faster boards use just more of these “quads”.


Around the chip there are two bit ring buses running at the same speed as the DRAM chips, but in opposite directions to reduce latency. Graphics Previous page Next page. The chip also ups the vertex shader number from 6 on X to 8.

ATI’s X1000 Series: Extended Performance Testing

Basically the chip can spread out memory requests faster and more directly to the RAM chips. HDCP is mandatory for the output of certain audio formats, placing additional constraints on the multimedia setup.

The X was based on the R core and was sold as an ultra-low-budget part. The R5xx family introduced a more advanced onboard motion-video engine. The Radeon X cards are the first graphics processing units GPU to utilize a nanometer semi-conductor process technology, giving it the ability to ramp up to unprecedented clock speeds.

Finally, there’s the Radeon X XT. ATI’s Next Chapter Early this month, the long wait and intense speculations were finally put to rest.

Radeon X for the entry-level market, Radeon X for the mid-range market and Radeon X for the high-end market.
