Radeon Series Radeon Series. The chip adopted an architecture consisting of 8 pixel pipelines, each with 1 texture mapping unit an 8×1 design. Radeon introduced ATI’s multi-sample gamma-corrected anti-aliasing scheme. This freed up engineering resources that were channeled towards driver improvements , and the performed phenomenally well at launch because of this. This was part of the new DirectX 9 specification, along with more flexible floating-point-based Shader Model 2.

At the time, this was quite astonishing, and resulted in the widespread acceptance of AA and AF as critical, truly usable features.
ATI Radeon XT VPU – Monster Performance for the Price Conscious
A slower chip, thewas launched a few months raseon, differing only by lower core and memory speeds. This was part of the new DirectX 9 specification, along with more flexible floating-point-based Shader Model 2.
ATI thus could achieve higher clock speeds. Multi-sampling offered vastly superior performance over the supersampling method on older Radeons, and superior image quality compared to NVIDIA’s offerings at the time.
Radeon introduced ATI’s multi-sample gamma-corrected anti-aliasing scheme.
Worthy of note regarding the Rbased generation is that the entire lineup utilized single-slot cooling solutions.
Current technologies and software.
Besides advanced architecture, reviewers ahi took note of ATI’s change in strategy. Meanwhile, the also became popular because it could in some cases be modified into the much more powerful The processors also include 2D GUI accelerationvideo acceleration, and multiple display outputs.
Alongside thethe a. Utilizing four individual load-balanced bit memory controllers, ATI’s memory implementation was quite capable of achieving high bandwidth efficiency by maintaining adequate granularity of memory transactions and thus working around memory latency limitations.
Radeon R Radeon R The demands of the 8×1 architecture required more bandwidth than the bit bus designs of the previous generation due to having double the texture and pixel fillrate. The demo was a real-time implementation of noted 3D graphics researcher Paul Debevec ‘s paper on the topic of high dynamic range rendering.
ATI Radeon 9600 XT
Radeon introduced ATI’s multi-sample gamma-corrected anti-aliasing scheme. Wti had released their Parhelia several months earlier, but this board did not show great gains with its bit bus. ATI, however, had not only doubled their bus to bit, but also integrated an advanced crossbar memory controller, somewhat similar to NVIDIA ‘s memory technology. See article on R’s pixel shaders. Since all of the R chips were based on the same physical die, ATI’s margins on ayi were low.
Anti-aliasing was, for the first time, a fully usable rb360 even in the newest and most demanding titles of the day. The would be the second of ATI’s chips after the to be shipped to third-party manufacturers instead of ATI producing all of its graphics cards, though ATI would still produce cards off of its highest-end chips.

These were Rs with higher clock speeds, and improvements to the shader units and memory controller which enhanced anti-aliasing performance. This page was last edited on 31 Julyat Later inthree new cards were launched: Peak pixel fill rate. For other uses, see R disambiguation. ATI only intended for the series to be a temporary solution to fill the gap for the Christmas season, prior to the release of the
