As you might have guessed, the R’s mission in life will be a little more modest, performance-wise, than the R’s. The cards’ performance is decent, and ATI’s market share numbers are up.

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 fab process. Retrieved 7 December HDCP is mandatory for the output of certain audio formats, placing additional constraints on the multimedia setup.

See article on R’s pixel shaders. The R and R aren’t revolutionary by any means, but ATI has brought some notable changes to each of them.

Radeon X800 Series

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.

Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The “R”-based X line was available in 3 forms: 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.

Like the R, the R is manufactured by TSMC on its low-k nm fab process, but the R and its supporting cast have been tweaked and tuned to reach higher clock speeds more easily and reliably. This article’s lead section may not adequately summarize its contents. Here’s a brief overview of how ATI will be using these new chips in actual products. Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff!

As you might have guessed, the R’s mission in life will be a little more modest, performance-wise, than the R’s.

However, not all has been roses. Retrieved 23 March No Interruptions Day Shortbread. Retrieved from ” https: ATI says the R should use as little as half the power and produce half the heat of the R in “2D” desktop use.

Dell returns to the stock market after six years. At boot time, that blower cranked up briefly to full speed, aurally evoking an Oreck XL.

The R, in turn, traces its roots to the R design used on the original Radeon Support in this table refers to the most current version. Views Read Edit View history. In fact, we’ve benchmarked it against nearly every card we could find. The R will be aimed at the very top of the performance ranks. Once those few seconds passed, though, the blower never did get back up to that speed again, no matter what I did with the card.

Still, the other shoe has dropped. The card surpassed the Raadeon with performance similar to that of the GeForce The first products based on these raceon will be the Radeon X Wti and X XT Platinum Edition, and we’ve had our grubby little hands on one of these cards long enough to benchmark it. A compatible HDCP display is also needed for this.

Like the R and R, the R has 16 pixel pipelines and six vertex shader engines. About us Privacy policy Mailing list Mobile. Graphics Previous page Next page. 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. ATI is aiming to correct these availability problems and bring a little more performance to the X series with x85 pair of new graphics chips, wti R and R
