The performance and quality increases offered by the R GPU is considered to be one of the greatest in the history of 3D graphics, alongside the achievements GeForce and Voodoo Graphics. Being the first laptop chip to offer DirectX 9. See article on R’s pixel shaders. The architecture of R was quite different from its predecessor, Radeon R , in nearly every way. UVD 7 [1] [d].

ATI Radeon 9200 PRO

Radeon R Radeon R A slower chip, thewas launched a few months later, differing only by lower core and memory speeds. ATI thus could achieve higher clock speeds.

HDCP is mandatory for the output of certain audio formats, placing additional constraints on the multimedia setup. The first graphics cards using the R to be released were the Radeon Radeon was one of the shortest-lived product of ATI, later replaced by the Radeon series.

A compatible HDCP display is also needed for this. The R also offered advanced anisotropic filtering which incurred a much smaller performance hit than the anisotropic solution of the GeForce4 and other competitors’ cards, while offering significantly improved quality over Radeon ‘s anisotropic filtering implementation which was highly angle dependent. This was part of the new DirectX 9 specification, along with more flexible floating-point-based Shader Model 2.

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 This trade-off in precision offered the best combination of transistor usage and image quality for the manufacturing process at the time.

Utilizing four individual load-balanced bit memory controllers, ATI’s memory implementation was quite capable of achieving high bandwidth efficiency by maintaining adequate granularity of memory transactions and thus working around memory latency limitations. Retrieved 7 December R was the first fully Direct3D 9-capable consumer graphics chip. Khanlaunched in August Retrieved 23 March During the summer ofthe Mobility Radeon was launched, based upon the RV atj.

Retrieved from ” https: The still held its own against the revised FXprimarily and significantly in tasks involving heavy SM2. Support in this table refers to the most current version.

UVD 7 [1] [d]. The other two variants were thewhich was simply a lower-clocked Pro, and the SE, which had rsdeon the pixel processing units disabled could sometimes be enabled again. It also lost part of HyperZ III with the removal of the hierarchical z-buffer optimization unit, the same as Radeon The architecture of R was quite different from its predecessor, Radeon Rin nearly every way.

Besides advanced architecture, reviewers also took note of ATI’s change in strategy. ATI, however, had not only doubled their bus to bit, but also integrated an atu crossbar memory controller, somewhat similar to NVIDIA ‘s memory technology.


Official ATI specifications dictate a bit memory bus for the SE, but most of the manufacturers used a bit bus. Later inthree new cards were launched: ATI demonstrated part of what was capable with pixel shader PS2.

eadeon At the time, this was quite astonishing, and resulted in the widespread acceptance of AA and AF as critical, truly usable features. Worthy of note regarding the Rbased ari is that the entire lineup utilized single-slot cooling solutions. The textures can be any combination of one, two, or three dimensions with bilinear rdaeon, trilinearor anisotropic filtering. They were designed to maintain a performance lead over the recently launched GeForce FX Ultra, which it managed to do without difficulty.

Another “RV” board followed in earlyon the Radeonwhich was a Radeon with a lower core clock though an identical memory clock and bus width. Current technologies and software. R and its derivatives would form the basis for ATI’s consumer and professional product lines for over 3 years. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
