A single slot and no power connector are the telling characteristics of ATI’s 0. For the R chip itself, the big change is in power management. Having gotten quite comfortable with the nm low-k fab technology, as well as the R, TSMC and ATI have been able to refine the process for the R by enhancing the silicon substrate through component selection and placement to further improve signal integrity leading to higher core clock frequencies.

The R is the higher end part in this case. At boot time, that blower cranked up briefly to full speed, aurally evoking an Oreck XL.

zti The R’s supporting cast gets similar tweaks. As a fabrication process matures, it is often possible to find ways to do things better, more efficiently, and with fewer defects in the final silicon. This page was last edited on 31 Julyat For a comparison point, here is an mp3 of the same testbed with an X XT starting up.

The stock thermal solution ATI provides is quite different from what we’ve seen in the past, and quite resembles the leaf-blower type systems we’ve seen attached to older GeForce FX based products. ATI has endowed the X50 with a dynamic clock gating capability, a la the Pentium M, that allows the chip to deactivate parts of itself when they’re not being used.


Steam names the best-selling games of Log in Don’t have an account? The R, in turn, traces its roots to the R design used on the original Radeon But I doubt that’ll happen any time soon since they’re all just riding high on the hog right now Voldenuit It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays.

However, not all has been roses. Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing We’ll have to wait and see what happens this spring before we can really see if the industry is going to start relaxing the product cycle a little, or if this last round was just a little more intense for both ATI and NVIDIA. Once those few seconds passed, though, the blower never did get back up to that speed again, no matter what I did with the card.

ATI has chosen a different chip substrate component in order to ease the quest for higher memory clock speeds. They were also able to shorten trace lengths from the core to memory.

LG HU85L projector needs but two inches to cast a 90″ picture. About us Tai policy Mailing list Mobile. To be completely fair, we haven’t tested it in oven-like weather or at a constant high overclock. It wasn’t available at launch, and we may never see it if the cards we look at today make it out the door.


Instead of dynamic clock gating and a big-ass fan, though, the R gets a bit of a die shrink courtesy of TSMC’s nm fab process. Relevant discussion may be found on the talk page. 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. This article’s lead section may not adequately summarize its contents.

A single slot and no power connector are the telling characteristics of ATI’s 0. Current technologies and software.

The lower clocked, nm solution won’t be fitted with the leaf-blower, but a much smaller hsf. See article on R’s pixel shaders.

ATI isn’t able to push the R chips at clock speeds that rival the R, but this matches well with cooler running, lower clocked 16 and 12 pixel pipe solutions which is exactly what ATI is offering with R based cards.
