ATi has managed to pull off a stable launch of its Xfamily and the key to success is that it has chosen to launch all three series at the same time. Last but not least are some very nice news with AA and AF. Using a Linux distribution a series of open source Radeon drivers are available. Just as with Call of Duty 2 F. Radeon X XT will arrive in large quantities in a month and the Xseries, whose transistor problem has to be solved before the launch, will arrive within a month after X XT.

Voldenuit It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. Radeon R5xx Acceleration v. Except for the 3D-performance the Xseries, and other cards in the X1000, have a very good base architecture.

According to ATi bit panels are on the way, although at a high price to begin with. With this de-interlacing method it tales in consideration the motions between frames and applies per pixel-ordered de-interlacing.

On a more serio R and R had nearly identical memory controller designs, with the former being a bug fixed release designed for higher clock speeds. Even with this six months time that developers had to work on the Linux package, the fglrx v8.

However, a year later and what will be twelve driver releases with R support, how does the performance now compare? At the end of the pipeline, the texture addressing processors are now decoupled from pixel shader, so any unused texturing units can be dynamically allocated to pixels that need more texture layers. Next up is Radeon X The rest are slated to arrive in November. Taking Radeon ROCm 2. But the lower frequencies apparently do a lot. The result was an increased frequency of no less than MHz.


The problem had been almost random in how it affected the prototype chips, making it quite difficult to finally identify.

Unlike the X, the X has 16 pixel shader processors as well, and equal ratio of texturing to pixel shading capability. R, however, differs with its central controller arbiter that connects to the “memory clients”. Both of these cards will appear in our tests further into the article and you will see that there is clear difference between the cards.

There is actually a fifth stop, one that is significantly less complex, designed for the PCI Express interface and video input. The chips have 4 texture units4 ROPs4 pixel shadersand 2 vertex shaderssimilar to the older X – X cards. Dynamic Branching is among others IF- and ELSE-statements in a shader, with the help of branching you can write considerably more complex shaders and at the same time increase efficiency.

X was not behind schedule, and was always planned as the agi refresh” chip. The Radeon X is x100 rather unique family of graphic cards considering that all cards have been launched at the same time. The Radeon X XT. We will also go more in depth on the Xseries architecture and the new features it offers, but first we will take a closer look at the two other series ATi has launched based on the R5xx-architecture.


Dell returns to the stock market after six years. Now it is time find out how ATi has solved this with the Xseries.

Three of the cards, including the X XL, should be available todayif all goes according to plan. The memory bus has been narrowed from a bit internal and bit memory bus with X to a bit and bit atj for X Last AMD Catalyst version that officially supports this series, is The monitor was plugged into a ait outlet, so its power draw was not part of our measurement.

No Interruptions Day Shortbread. The X series has two parts, which are quite different with regards to performance. Not only are they fully Shader Model 3 capable, but ATI introduced some innovative advancements in shader threading that can greatly improve the efficiency of the shader units. It has without a doubt made a great job with keeping the foundation competitive until when nVidia launched its GeForce 6-series at the qti of last year when it started to get a little old.

This design allows memory accesses to be far quicker though lower latency by virtue of the smaller distance the signals need to move through the GPU, and by increasing the number of banks per DRAM.
