Besides advanced architecture, reviewers also took note of ATI’s change in strategy. Radeon R Radeon R Radeon introduced ATI’s multi-sample gamma-corrected anti-aliasing scheme. The R was the first board to truly take advantage of a bit memory bus. Since all of the R chips were based on the same physical die, ATI’s margins on products were low. R; internal ArtX codename: This page was last edited on 31 July , at

The still held its own against the revised FXprimarily and significantly in tasks involving heavy SM2.

Alongside thethe a. Anti-aliasing was, for the first time, a fully usable option even in the newest and most demanding titles wti the day. In earlythe cards were replaced by the raeeon, R Equipped with 4 vertex shader units, R possessed over twice the geometry processing capability of the preceding Radeon and the GeForce4 Tiin addition to the greater feature-set offered compared to DirectX 8 shaders. A slower chip, thewas launched a few months later, differing only by lower core and memory speeds.

Radeon Series – Wikipedia

Radeon ‘s advanced architecture was very efficient and, of course, more powerful compared to its older peers of The R was the first board to truly take advantage of a bit memory bus. The other two variants were thewhich was simply a lower-clocked Pro, and the SE, which had half the pixel processing units disabled could sometimes be enabled again.

Retrieved from ” https: At the time, this was quite astonishing, and resulted in the widespread acceptance of AA and AF as critical, truly usable features. See article on R’s pixel shaders. The textures can be any combination of one, two, or atl dimensions with bilineartrilinearor anisotropic filtering.

ATI thus could achieve higher clock speeds. ATI, however, had not only doubled their bus to bit, but also integrated an advanced crossbar memory controller, somewhat similar to NVIDIA ‘s memory technology. It did cause a usually visibly imperceptible loss of quality when doing heavy blending. ATI demonstrated part of what was capable with pixel shader PS2.

R and its derivatives would form the basis for ATI’s consumer and professional product lines for over 3 years. Its texture units could perform a new loopback operation which allowed them to sample up to 16 textures per geometry pass.

R would become one of the GPUs with the longest 128 lifetime in history, allowing playable performance in new games at least 3 years after its launch. ATI Technologies products Video cards. The would be the second of ATI’s chips after the to be shipped to third-party manufacturers instead of ATI producing all of its graphics cards, though ATI would still produce cards off of its highest-end chips.

HDCP is mandatory for the output of certain audio formats, placing additional constraints on the multimedia setup. It also lost part of HyperZ III with the removal of the hierarchical z-buffer optimization unit, the same as Radeon This was part of the new DirectX 9 specification, along with more flexible atu Shader Model 2. The demo was a real-time implementation of noted 3D graphics researcher Paul Debevec ‘s paper on the topic of high dynamic range rendering.


Official ATI specifications dictate a bit memory bus for the SE, but most of the manufacturers used a bit bus. The chip adopted an architecture consisting of 8 pixel pipelines, each with 1 texture mapping unit an 8×1 design. This trade-off in precision offered the best combination of transistor usage and image quality for the manufacturing process at the time. ATI only intended for the series to be a temporary solution to fill the gap for the Christmas season, prior to the release of the They were designed to maintain a performance lead over the recently launched GeForce FX Ultra, which it managed to do without difficulty.

A few months later, the and PRO were launched. Matrox had released their Parhelia several months earlier, but this board did not show great gains with its bit bus. One major change with the manufacturing of the core was the use of the flip-chip packaginga technology not used previously on video cards.
