After all, there’s the general impression that having a discrete graphics card is better than integrated graphics. So which side has the superior technology? Things are slightly different now due to the wider and faster PCIe interface that has equal upstream and downstream bandwidth and that has convinced chipmakers to give it another shot. From Advanced Micro Devices: Despite starting from the same concept, both graphics chipmakers have quite different implementations. Was this review helpful?

Sapphire RADEON X300 SE HyperMemory graphics card – Radeon X300 SE – 32 MB

However, both ATI and NVIDIA have not missed the opportunity to rehash an idea from the past, which was that of storing large textures in the system memory and then accessing them when needed.

Jypermemory which side has the superior technology? Instead, we shall be hyprrmemory on a low budget graphics card retail solution based on ATI’s HyperMemory technology, the Sapphire Radeon X SE and see how it performs against other budget cards.


Meanwhile, ATI has gone purely software, depending on memory management algorithms, which they have named HyperMemory. Compared to the older AGP standard, the greater bandwidth and higher transfer rates of PCIe are some of the more obvious advantages. Flaming or offending other users.

Sapphire RADEON X300 SE HyperMemory – graphics card – Radeon X300 SE – 128 MB

Enter the e-mail address of the recipient Add your hypermejory personal message: Having really low budget cards will almost certainly attract mainstream consumers, especially when it comes ‘branded’ with the ATI or NVIDIA logo, unlike the generic integrated graphics solution and besides, some of those implementations have their drawbacks.

This means if the local memory is full, its holding data has to be swapped out to the main memory before the GPU can write to the local memory. From Advanced Micro Devices: We shall not be answering that question directly as that is not our focus in this review.

Even if most implementations of the interface have yet to achieve the theoretical limits, the results are encouraging s300 bode well for future, more bandwidth intensive tasks like HD video streaming where GPUs can play a useful role. While this was initially mooted and implemented with AGP cards, the limitations of the technology then meant that it was an idea ahead of its time, as the results were not impressive.

Radeon X graphics technology is an affordable upgrade to broaden the visual possibilities on your PC. Thank You for Submitting a Reply,!

Promote cracked software, or other illegal content. Hence, there would not be an in-depth analysis and comparison of the two technologies, though you may still find the results relevant enough to form your own conclusions from them. This is an old archive page of HWZ prior to revamp. As expected, we have two competing technologies from the present graphics duopoly. Advertisements or commercial links. The posting of advertisements, profanity, or personal attacks is prohibited.

Despite starting from the same concept, both graphics chipmakers have quite different implementations. While the operating algorithm is simple, memory swapping occurs more often. Please visit HWZ for the latest reviews and news. For the manufacturers, using the system memory to supplement the onboard graphics memory meant that they could get away 182mb less onboard components, and produce low budget graphics cards that are a gypermemory up from the usual integrated graphics option and thereby compete with the dominant integrated graphics maker, Intel.
