Exciting times in the graphics industry you ask? Nvidia made a big deal about its cards’ support for the more advanced Shader 3. Like the R and R, the R has 16 pixel pipelines and six vertex shader engines. The Radeon X Pro for example is such a product. We’ve changed, we promise.

And if you want atl be the leader with the best reputation in the business you need plainum have a flagship that can beat the competition.

Customize The Tech Report Interestingly, at 1,x1, resolution, both cards turned in identical 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 That means you can clock the core faster, which was done quite insignificantly for this model but the increase is there. For the R chip itself, the big change is in power management.

It’s never been any different though, yet it is more and raceon difficult for us journalists to test these cards. Secondly, as a single-slot card that worked with most standard watt PC power tadeon, ATI’s card was much easier to install than the Nvidia-based card, which took up two slots and required, by some estimates, up to a watt power unit.


The R and R aren’t revolutionary by any means, but ATI has brought some notable changes to each of them. ATI remained clear of such questionable “tricks” Great sound, but it’s trapped in Apple’s world.

Instead of dynamic clock gating and a big-ass fan, though, the R gets a bit of a die shrink courtesy of TSMC’s nm aati process. Sounds great but lacks vision. The card fully supports all of the DirectX 9. No, not at all What’s new then you are asking?

About us Privacy policy Mailing list Mobile. The Radeon X Pro for example is such a product. Only a few percent of the market is actually in that high-end range. The R, in turn, traces its roots to the R design used on the original Radeon ATI has endowed the R with a dynamic clock gating capability, a la the Pentium M, that allows the chip to deactivate parts of itself when they’re not being used.

We’ve changed, we promise. Let’s place the high-end product range in a table to be able to understand what is going on: LG HU85L projector needs but two inches to cast a 90″ picture. That 80nm process ensures cheaper production of the silicon and more importantly less heat and likely lower graphics core voltages. Review Sections Review Specs.


ATI Radeon X XT Platinum Edition review: ATI Radeon X XT Platinum Edition – CNET

ATI says the R should use as little as half the power and produce half the heat of the R in “2D” desktop use. The second prong of ATI’s new high-end assault is the R No Interruptions Day Shortbread.

Always have the fastest card, that’s what a graphics card manufacturer always has in the back of his head. Now we have in all these ranges about products to choose from, each with their own specifications and price tag.

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. Oh, x80, the streets aren’t exactly awash plainum GeForce Ultras, but the Platinum Edition has been brutally scarce.
