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. Graphics Previous page Next page. For a comparison point, here is an mp3 of the same testbed with an X XT starting up. At boot time, that x8500 cranked up briefly to full speed, aurally evoking an Oreck XL. Support in this table refers to the most current version.

About us Privacy policy Mailing list Mobile. A single slot and no power connector are the telling characteristics of ATI’s 0. Still, the other shoe has dropped. But that’s enough about the chips; let’s take a look at what we can expect to see in the way of actual products equipped with these new improved GPUs.

The board design has been changed to improve power delivery to the graphics chip.

Current technologies and software. Steam names the best-selling games of These are the types of process enhancements that go on most of the time at any given fab. It doesn’t matter how well we compare products if it’s impossible to get a hold z850 them.


On a more serio ATI says the R should use as little as half the power and produce half the heat of the R in “2D” desktop use. No Interruptions Day Shortbread. R was unable to reach high clock speeds, having been designed to reduce the cost per GPU, creating wti need for new top-of-the-line core.

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 aati and reliably.

Unfortunately, unless product is available at launch, it makes it very hard for us to guess when we will see anything come along.

Our case and point is the X XT. This change, like all the others to the R, qti intended to bring higher clock speeds with less fuss, so that supply of Rbased cards might actually be able to keep up with demand.

Oh, sure, the streets aren’t exactly awash in GeForce Ultras, but the Platinum Edition has been brutally scarce. Generally, as the process gets ato, yield improves, costs go down, and profits go up. For the R chip itself, the big change is in power management. Occasionally, it’s also possible to find ways of doing things that enhance the performance of the final product as well. Here’s a brief overview of how ATI will be using these new chips in actual products.


They were atl able to shorten trace lengths from the core to memory. In the case of the current generation of graphics cards, it took quite a while to go from launch to high availability.

Radeon X800 Series

agi 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, in turn, traces its roots to the R design used on the original Radeon That being said, they are both, in fact, different chips than their predecessor.

The R’s supporting cast gets similar tweaks. This article’s lead section may not adequately summarize its contents.
