The first products based on these chips will be the Radeon X XT and X XT Platinum Edition, and we’ve had our grubby little hands on one of these cards long enough to benchmark it. The R, in turn, traces its roots to the R design used on the original Radeon The cards’ performance is decent, and ATI’s market share numbers are up. 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 Here’s a brief overview of how ATI will be using these new chips in actual products. At boot time, that blower cranked up briefly to full speed, aurally evoking an Oreck XL.

ATI’s Radeon X850 XT graphics cards
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 sti they’re not being used. Retrieved 23 March See article on R’s pixel shaders.
Current technologies and software. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Support in this table refers to the most current version. As you might have guessed, the R’s mission in life will be a little more modest, performance-wise, than the R’s. The R’s supporting cast gets similar tweaks.
Retrieved from ” https: The new high-end R4x0-generation arrived with the X series, equipped with various core tweaks for slightly higher performance than the “R”-based X series. In fact, we’ve benchmarked it against nearly every card we could find. HDCP is mandatory for the output of certain audio formats, placing additional constraints on the multimedia setup. Still, the other shoe has dropped.
Dell returns to the stock market after six years.
Radeon X Series – Wikipedia
Rbased Radeon X cards will get a much smaller cooler. The first products based on these chips will be the Radeon X XT and X XT Platinum Edition, and we’ve had our grubby little hands on one of these cards long enough to benchmark it.
Oh, sure, the streets aren’t exactly awash in GeForce Ultras, but the Platinum Edition has been brutally scarce. 850zt of dynamic clock gating and a big-ass fan, though, the R gets a bit of a die shrink courtesy of TSMC’s nm fab process. R was unable to reach high clock speeds, having been designed to reduce the cost per GPU, creating a need for new top-of-the-line core.
Retrieved 7 December Both of the Radeon X cards will use a single-slot cooler and require no external power plug at least on PCI Express versions.
The R and R aren’t revolutionary by any means, but ATI has brought some notable changes to each of them. No Interruptions Day Shortbread.

ATI says the R should use as little as half the power and produce half the heat of the R in “2D” desktop use. Steam names the best-selling games of xti UVD 7  [d].
ATI has chosen a different chip substrate component in order to ease the quest for higher memory clock speeds. The board design has been changed to improve power delivery to the graphics chip.
