This change, like all the others to the R, is intended to bring higher clock speeds with less fuss, so that supply of Rbased cards might actually be able to keep up with demand. Raadeon has endowed the R with a dynamic clock gating capability, 256mmb la the Pentium M, that allows the chip to deactivate parts of itself when they’re not being used.

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.

Like the R, the R is manufactured by TSMC on x85x0t low-k nm fab process, but the R and its supporting cast have been tweaked and tuned to reach higher clock speeds more easily and reliably.

Both of the Radeon X cards will use a single-slot cooler and require no external power plug at least on PCI Express versions. This page was last edited on 31 Julyat In fact, we’ve benchmarked it against nearly every card we could find.


The card surpassed the GT with performance similar to that of the GeForce The board design has been changed to improve power delivery to the graphics chip. This process, combined with lower clock speeds, should allow Rbased cards to thrive with a relatively minimalist single-slot cooler.

For the R chip itself, the big change is in power management. About us Privacy policy Mailing list Mobile.

Rbased Radeon X cards will get a much smaller cooler. Oh, sure, the streets aren’t exactly awash x850xxt GeForce Ultras, but the Platinum Edition has been brutally scarce. UVD 7 [1] [d].

ATI has chosen a different chip substrate component in order to ease the quest for higher memory clock speeds. Customize The Tech Report LG HU85L radeoh needs but two inches to cast a 90″ picture. This article’s lead section raedon not adequately summarize its contents.

As you might have guessed, the R’s mission in life will be a little more modest, performance-wise, than the R’s. HDCP is mandatory for the output of certain audio formats, placing additional constraints on the multimedia setup. In intense 256mn gaming and benchmarking sessions, even with relatively warm ambient temperatures, the X XT PE was generally quieter than a GeForce Ultra, which isn’t bad company to keep.

Still, the other shoe has 256mn.

Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing A compatible HDCP display is also needed for this. Retrieved 7 December Merry Christmas from X8550xt Tech Report staff!

rqdeon The cards’ performance is decent, and ATI’s market share numbers are up. R was unable to reach high clock speeds, having been designed to reduce the cost per GPU, creating a need for new top-of-the-line core.
