Full time bit floating point precision. Retrieved 7 December Sign up now Username Password Remember Me. CrossFire support for all models. We don’t have too many details on it yet, but we do know several things. 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.

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. See article on R’s pixel shaders. Other improvements include x texture support and ATI’s 3Dc normal map compression sees an improvement in compression ratio for more specific situations.

Dell returns to the stock market after six years.

The three stalwarts of the new Serise X family. For those who worry about the expected power consumption of such a powerful card, ATI has implemented dynamic voltage control to throttle power seriws hence, heat output when necessary. Archived from the original on May 7, ATI hasn’t given us any projections about how broad or deep availability of these new cards will be, so we will have to wait and see about that. Changes necessary for SM3.

The highest the number of samples, the sharper the game image will be, but the game will be also slower. Hopefully, we will be able to shed some light on the issue here.


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. This means that RV has the same texturing ability as the X at the same clock speed, but with its 12 pixel shaders it encroaches on X’s territory in shader computational performance. Using a Linux distribution a series of open source Radeon drivers are available. This filtering can be usually configured as the number of samples used on the filtering process.

It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. X was not behind schedule, and was always planned as the “spring refresh” chip.

Radeon X series – Wikipedia

Around the chip there are two bit ring buses running at the same speed as the DRAM chips, but in opposite seriss to reduce latency. Full time bit floating point precision. This series is the budget solution of the X series and is based on the RV core. In addition to ring bus, each memory channel now has the granularity of bits, which improves memory efficiency when performing small memory requests.

A compatible HDCP display is also needed for this.

ATI’s X1000 Series: Extended Performance Testing

tai The X cards have 3 pixel shaders on each pipeline instead of 1, giving a total of 48 pixel shader units. This generation has support for all recent memory types, including GDDR4. The Radeon X series using the core was introduced on October 5,and competed primarily against sries GeForce series.


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.

Anisotropic filtering is used to get a sharper image and to not become fuzzy like in this example. HDCP is mandatory for the output of certain audio formats, placing additional constraints on the multimedia setup.

The red team’s track record on product availability has been rocky in the past year or so, but perhaps this round will be different. The test system that we employed is the one used for our initial tests of the hardware.

The x000 models in the X series, the Radeon X and X cards are reduced derivatives of the R core with a smaller die size and less functional units. In other projects Wikimedia Commons.

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. Further up the ladder, we have the Radeon X XT. The X series has two parts, which serifs quite different with regards to performance.
