In our opinion though, anything above rpm with that cooler will probably contribute to higher stress levels from its noise. You may also be interested in Singapore Malaysia Philippines Indonesia.

But hey, most of all, enjoy this article! You may also be interested in Therefore ATI decided to increase the number of Pixel Shader units inside that graphics core from 16 to 48 and with success. ATI not taking lightly to being pushed back to the passenger seat just soon after its prized Radeon X series was made available, they have been quietly working upon a revised edition of their flagship and have made it available much earlier than anticipated with the new Radeon X series today.

On the next few pages we’ll talk quickly about the new X products yes there are actually four of themdo a recap on the memory controller, talk features and specifications but most of all have a look at performance.

ATI Radeon X1900 XTX

However, if you are engaged in overclocking, you may choose to adjust the fan speed higher. Oh and please, don’t get confused here, it’s 48 pixel shader units not to be confused with the cards sixteen “true” pipelines. Basically a pixel pipeline consists of a pixel shader processor, a texture mapping unit TMU and a raster operator unit ROP.

ATI’s Radeon X series should have been out as early as when NVIDIA had their GeForce series out in the market, but it’s just unfortunate that they kept facing manufacturing and yield issues that pushed its launch way back till the last quarter of True to this fact, we’ve seen how the Radeon X series behave with their uneven number of processing units, which give them their distinct performance in forward looking processing models rzdeon as x19000 3DMark05 and the very latest games like FarCry, Half Life 2, Doom3, FEAR and more.


Road to Hill So far, we haven’t heard of any manufacturer overclocking the Radeon X XTX out of the box so the likely frequencies that you can find are what we found on the Sapphire: To be precise, it now has 48 pixel shader processors, triple that in the original Radeon X series and double that of the GeForce GTX.

Hey friends, can you imagine it?

First Looks from Taiwan – ATI Radeon X1900XTX 512MB

The series really diggs that GDDR5 memory bandwidth, and what’s the cheapest thing to do to gain some extra performance? The benefits of being based out of Taipei in Taiwan are great for a person who runs a computer hardware website.

With practically all these high-end cards manufactured under the auspices of ATI, Sapphire only made the trivial change of pasting its own decals on the cooler. See graphics chip architecture is a very parallel process, ATI decided instead of constantly increasing the sum of everything, to go for efficiency and maximize performance where you’ll need it the most.

While we’ve listed the specs of the XT variant which we’ll be investigating via PowerColor’s latest graphics card to bear this GPU, the XTX version is of course the ultimate performer and the XL presumably fitting in a lower sweet-spot. ATI’s new take of packing in vastly more pixel shader processors is simply because they are catering the Radeon X series for forward looking application that would make heavy use of pixel shaders.

First Looks from Taiwan – ATI Radeon XXTX MB

In a move which we hope to be doing more of from now on, we bring you our first article which takes a first look at products which we test in Taiwan in our 512,b or at a computer company HQ.

The CyberLink PowerDVD and PowerDirector included in the package are also the 512bm versions available and together with the comprehensive cables and accessories included, the entire bundle is a very worthy complement to the expensive hardware.


You can expect the same treatment from any other vendor for a Radeon X card. Of course we recently introduced HD gaming resolutions at 19×12 so you’ll notice some performance testing at such a level also. With varying processing emphasis within the GPUs, you can easily foretell that graphics cards from both camps are going to perform dissimilarly for certain games and settings, which we’ll all find out in due time.

The new card is of course capable of all the latest features like HDR, high antialiasing options, Avivo functionality and some new stuff like fetch4 shadow map technology.

This article will radwon centered around a performance look at the product since we were not briefed on the new GPU from ATI officially but we’ll also include some pictures and basic specifications on the next page for your information. They are releasing the Radeon HDa mainstream product at a budget price.

We’ll discuss it all in this article.

Sapphire’s bundle for its Radeon X XTX MB is typical of its recent high-end ones, with a choice of 51mb relatively new games offered from its Sapphire Select program of four. Apart from the bump in pixel shader processors, the rest of the specs are quite similar to its Radeon X counterpart.

These shader units are part of the pixel pipelines. By default the smart fan is throttled by the drivers, such that at idle, it spins at less than rpm.
