Later in , three new cards were launched: Retrieved 23 March Khan , launched in August Anti-aliasing was, for the first time, a fully usable option even in the newest and most demanding titles of the day. They were designed to maintain a performance lead over the recently launched GeForce FX Ultra, which it managed to do without difficulty.

ATi Radeon R300 Series

Multi-sampling offered vastly superior performance over the supersampling method on older Radeons, and superior image quality compared to NVIDIA’s offerings at the time. Retrieved 23 March From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Alongside thethe a. The ato 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. DX9 support, 4 pixel pipes, 1 texture per pipe, and 2 x bit memory controllers. R was the first fully Direct3D 9-capable consumer graphics chip. In falla slightly faster variant, the Mobility Radeon was launched which was still based upon the RV, and not the older R of the desktop Radeon despite the naming similarity.

Remember that the Radeon Pro will enjoy higher fill rates courtesy of its 8-pipe design, but the Radeon Pro’s higher clock rate and significantly improved memory controller should be able to eat into that advantage. R; internal ArtX codename: Views Read Edit View history. ATI, perhaps mindful of what had happened to 3dfx when they took focus off their Rampage processor, abandoned it in favor of finishing off their next-generation R card.


The RV doesn’t stop there, and actually features a superior Hyper-Z engine to what is found in the R; the reason being that with a 0. Current technologies and software. This trade-off in precision offered the best combination of transistor usage and image quality for the manufacturing process at the time. 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.

The textures can be any combination of one, rv530, or three dimensions with bilineartrilinearor anisotropic filtering. Its texture units could perform a new loopback operation which allowed them to sample up to 16 textures per geometry pass. A slower chip, thewas launched a few months later, differing only by lower core and memory speeds.

With a transistor count of million, it was the largest and most complex GPU of the time. Matrox had released their Parhelia several months earlier, but this board did not show great gains with its bit bus. Agi was part of the new DirectX 9 specification, along with more flexible floating-point-based Shader Model 2. The R, with its next-generation architecture giving it unprecedented features and performance, would have been superior to any R refresh.

DMScard height: This trade-off in precision offered the best combination of transistor usage and image quality for the manufacturing process at the time. Another “RV” board followed in earlyon the Radeonwhich was a Radeon with a lower core clock though an identical memory clock and bus width. A few months later, the and PRO were launched. It did cause a usually visibly imperceptible loss of quality when doing heavy blending.

The would be the second of ATI’s chips after the to be shipped to third-party manufacturers instead afi ATI producing all of its graphics cards, though ATI would still produce cards off of its highest-end chips.

ATI thus could achieve higher clock speeds. Flip chip packaging allows far better cooling of the die by flipping it and exposing it directly to the cooling solution. R; internal ArtX codename: The demands of the 8×1 architecture required more bandwidth than the bit bus designs of the previous generation due to having double the texture and pixel fillrate. These were very popular for Dell and other OEM companies to sell in various configurations; connectors: R would become one of the GPUs with the longest useful lifetime in history, allowing playable performance in new games at least 3 years after its launch.
