PassMark – RADEON – Price performance comparison
R was the first fully Direct3D 9-capable consumer graphics chip. Very happy with this graphics card.
Being the first laptop chip to offer DirectX 9. This freed up engineering resources that were channeled towards driver improvementsand the performed phenomenally well at launch because of this.
ATI demonstrated part of what was capable with pixel shader PS2. R would become one of the GPUs with the longest useful lifetime in history, allowing playable performance in new games at least 3 years after its launch.
The processors also include 2D GUI accelerationvideo acceleration, and multiple display outputs. This was part of the new DirectX 9 specification, along with more flexible floating-point-based Shader Model 2. Its advanced processing features are designed to generate a superior video out image, making it particularly suited for applications such as TV Web browsing. At the time, this was quite astonishing, and resulted in the widespread acceptance of AA and AF as critical, truly usable features.
Later inthree new cards were launched: Webarchive template wayback links All articles with dead external links Articles with dead external links from April Articles with permanently dead external links All articles with unsourced statements Articles with unsourced statements from September Meanwhile, the also became popular because it could in some cases be modified into the much more powerful R and its derivatives would form the basis for ATI’s consumer and professional product lines for over 3 years.
The R was the first board to truly take advantage of a bit memory bus. Official ATI specifications dictate a bit memory bus for the SE, but most of the manufacturers used a bit bus.
In falla slightly faster variant, the Mobility Radeon was launched which was still based upon the RV, and not the older R of the desktop Radeon despite the naming similarity. UVD 7  [d]. 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. In earlythe cards were replaced by the or, R Flip chip packaging allows far better cooling of the die by flipping it and exposing it directly to the cooling solution.
It also lost part of HyperZ III with the removal of the hierarchical z-buffer optimization unit, the same as Radeon Views Read Edit View history. ATI Technologies products Video cards. ATI, perhaps mindful of what had happened to 3dfx when they took focus off their Rampage processor, abandoned it in favor of finishing off their next-generation R card. Copyright c HIS.
See article on R’s pixel shaders. I have upgraded my computer many times now, used this graphics card in all of them and it has never let me down.

Alongside thethe a. While this differed from the older chips using 2 or 3 for the original Radeon texture units per pipeline, this did not mean R could not perform multi-texturing as efficiently as older chips.
