It wasn’t available at launch, and we may never see it if the cards we look at today make it out the door. UVD 7 [1] [d]. Having gotten quite comfortable with the nm low-k fab technology, as well as the R, TSMC and ATI have been able to refine the process for the R by enhancing the silicon substrate through component selection and placement to further improve signal integrity leading to higher core clock frequencies. The card more than surpassed the GT with performance similar to that of the GeForce 6 Similar to how texture compression had been part of the Direct3D specification for years and was used for compressing regular textures, normal map compression compacted this new type of surface detail layer. The chip came equipped with over double the pixel and vertex pushing resources compared to the Radeon XT’s R a minor evolution of the R , with 16 DirectX 9.

Used first on the Radeon X, the R was produced on a 0. Because DirectX Texture Compression DXTC was block-based and not designed for a normal map’s different data properties, a new compression method was needed to prevent loss of detail and other artifacting.


Radeon X800 Series

The “R”-based X line was available in 3 forms: However, in games which this performance level could be maintained, Temporal AA was r340 nice addition to ATI’s excellent anti-aliasing options. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

As such, this chip was obviously designed for a heavier geometry load than texturing, perhaps being tailored for a role as a FireGL chip.

Getting very quiet, very solid performance out of these chips will be a simple matter.

The R is fabbed on the nm radeoj rather than the nm low-k x8000. A compatible HDCP display is also needed for this. Note, ATI’s “Temporal AA” was actually a temporal dithering filter for spatial AA, not de facto temporal anti-aliasing which must involve a controlled blending of the temporal subsamples from consecutive screens.

ATI Radeon X XL Specs – CNET

UVD 7 [1] [d]. Relevant discussion may be found on the talk page.

The differences between the R and the R are clearer cut. This page was last edited on 14 Octoberat But it is still fall, and, still on schedule, ATI’s fall rradeon part is here.


If owning a single slot solution is a deciding factor, the R will fulfill that niche. R was actually a secondary 4th generation project for ATI, ardeon the original R plan being scrapped.

That’ll make the other gpu companies scramble. HDCP is mandatory for the output of certain audio formats, placing additional constraints on the multimedia setup. See article on R’s pixel shaders.

Some people didn’t expect it to happen this season, and it is a little late in the year. Our case and point is the X XT. Com, December 1,retrieved January 17, By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

Basically, they do it because they can! This article’s lead section may not adequately summarize its contents.

Log in Don’t have an account? Although the Rbased chips are fundamentally similar to Rbased cores, ATI did tweak and enhance the pixel shader units for more flexibility. Strangely, the X mainstream atu RV had 6 vertex shaders while only being equipped with 2 quads. The memory controller and memory bandwidth optimization techniques HyperZ were identical.
