ATI Radeon X850 XT Platinum AGP

We’ve seen a plague of driver optimizations from manufacturers. The one you’ve been waiting for.

Always have the fastest card, that’s what a graphics card manufacturer always has in the back of his head. The new card is also physically larger than the X XT, and it’s the first Radeob card to take up the space of two expansion slots, because of its expanded cooling fan.

The second prong of ATI’s new high-end assault is the R The R will be aimed at the very top of the performance ranks.

ATI says the R should use as little as pltainum the power and produce half the heat of the R in “2D” desktop use. Great sound, but it’s trapped in Apple’s world.

Speaking as a journalist I have to admit that the so called optimizations made our job very hard as you cannot compare oranges with apples plstinum

Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff! Continue to next page 01 Uhm, well nothing except a newer 80nm fabrication process. The R’s supporting cast gets similar tweaks.


Radeon X Pro MB Review So today we’ll be looking at the rather lovely Radeon X Pro from this company, a review on ATI’s latest pipe mid-range product which obviously was based off the R silicon, and quite frankly is a very credible graphics card as you’ll learn in this article.

The first products based on these chips will be the Radeon X XT and X XT Platinum Edition, and we’ve had our grubby little hands on one of these cards long enough to benchmark it.

But to have the fastest product radfon the best feature set, that’s what makes a reputation and that’s what will sell the rest of your products. Interestingly, at 1,x1, resolution, both cards turned in identical Here’s a brief overview of how ATI will be using these new chips in actual products.

ATI’s Radeon X850 XT graphics cards

Nobody noticed it yet it’s there alright and now merged into the x and x series. The card fully supports all of the DirectX 9. LG HU85L projector needs but two inches to cast a 90″ picture. The Bad The card’s too large to fit in some PC cases. Like the R and R, the R has 16 pixel pipelines and six vertex shader engines.

What’s new then you are asking? ATI knew this as well, they partly invented this game. Far Crywith the most recent patch, and Splinter Cell: For the R chip itself, the big change is in power management. Secondly, as a single-slot card that worked with most standard watt PC power supplies, ATI’s card was much easier to install than the Nvidia-based card, which took up two slots and required, by some estimates, up to a watt power unit.


All of them in the high-end range where one is ATI’s new flagship and where another is in the middle of that high-end range. No Interruptions Day Shortbread. We delete comments that violate our policywhich we encourage you to read. The card features 36 Pixel Shaders units.

Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook’s The power requirements remain a realistic watts, but the card’s still a hassle to install if your system already has a full complement of PCI expansion cards.

In intense 3D gaming and benchmarking sessions, even with relatively warm ambient temperatures, the X XT PE was generally quieter raadeon a GeForce Ultra, which isn’t bad company to keep.
