ATI Radeon X1300 PRO
The demo showcased a highly complex environment, with high dynamic range lighting HDR and dynamic soft shadows. Archived from the original on May 7, Views Read Edit View history.
HDCP is mandatory for the output of certain audio formats, placing additional constraints on the multimedia setup.
The chip’s single “quad” has atj pixel shader processors per pipeline, similar to the design of R’s 4 quads. This provides temporary storage necessary to keep the pipelines fed by having work available as much as possible.
This modular design allows ATI to build a “top to bottom” line-up using identical technology, saving research and development time and money. Contrasting the X however, R’s shader units are vastly improved. RV, for example, has two internal bit buses instead. When one of the shader quads becomes idle, due to a completion of a task or waiting for other data, the dispatch engine will assign the quad with another task to do in the meantime, with the overall result being a greater utilization of the shader units, theoretically.
In addition to ring bus, each memory channel now has the granularity of bits, which improves memory efficiency when performing small memory requests. The X series has two parts, which are quite different with regards to performance. Support in this table refers to the most current version.
ATI Radeon X PRO |
Radeon R5xx Acceleration v. The card was launched on August 23, As is typical for an ATI video card release, a selection of real-time 3D demonstration programs were released at launch. 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.
Not only are they fully Shader Model 3 capable, but ATI introduced some innovative advancements in shader threading that can greatly improve the efficiency of the shader units.
Radeon X1000 series
The Radeon X series using the core was introduced on October 5,and competed primarily against nVidia’s GeForce series. This design allows memory accesses to be far radfon though lower latency by virtue of the smaller distance the signals need to move through the GPU, and by increasing the number of banks per DRAM.
R, however, differs with its central controller arbiter that connects to the “memory clients”. This series is the budget solution of the X series and is based on the RV core. This page was last edited on 8 Mayat Using a Linux distribution a series of open source Radeon drivers are available. ATI Technologies products Video cards. X was quickly replaced by X because of its delayed release.
In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Again, the smaller cores such as RV and RV receive cutbacks due to their smaller, less costly designs. It also gains three extra gadeon shaders, bringing the total to 5 units.
Its advantage over X is both lower power consumption and heat output. Along these ring buses are 4 “stop” points where data exits the ring and going into or out of the memory chips.
