Items Will ship hours after cleared payment. ATI has been working for years on a high-performance shader compiler in their driver for their older hardware, so staying with a similar basic design that is compatible offered obvious cost and time savings. We’ll be taking the Radeon X Pro from HiS for a test-drive, and that means great cooling and a good bundle for the money. Item is used but was pulled from a perfectly working unit. R You read that right, anyone remember the Radeon HD ?

Like its predecessor X, the R chip carries 4 “quads” 4 pipelines eachwhich means it has similar texturing capability if at the same clock speed as its ancestor, and the NVIDIA series.

With chips such as RV and R, where the number of shader units per pipeline triples, the efficiency of pixel shading drops off slightly because these shaders still have the same level of threading resources as the less endowed RV and R How to identify “Turbo” edition?

Retrieved 23 March A compatible HDCP display is also needed for this. X was quickly replaced by X because of its delayed release. Retrieved 7 December See more like this.

The problem had been almost random in how it affected the prototype chips, making it quite difficult to finally identify. HDCP is mandatory for the output of certain audio formats, placing additional constraints on the multimedia setup. More refinements More refinements But this should actually come as good news considering the original Radeo was a solid product that would have received much better press if it wasn’t for the fact it was too expensive at the time of aati release.

X was not behind schedule, and was always planned as the “spring refresh” chip. The X Pro is the first ATI card that supports native Crossfire implementation by a pair of internal Crossfire connectors, which eliminates the need for the unwieldy external dongle found in older Crossfire systems.

Unlike the X, the X has 16 pixel shader processors as well, and equal ratio of texturing to pixel shading capability. The card uses liquid cooling radson the GPU that runs towards a mm radiator. There is actually a fifth stop, one that is significantly less complex, designed for the PCI Express interface and video input.

Basically the chip can spread out memory requests faster and more directly to the RAM chips. R and R had nearly identical memory controller designs, with the former being a bug fixed release designed for higher clock speeds. All Auction Buy it now. This refers to ATI’s plan to boost the efficiency of their GPU, instead of going with a brute force increase in the number of processing units.

As such this in-depth review will cover the V There seems to be a problem completing the request at present.
