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.

The integrated graphics processor based upon R is the Xpress 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. R was the first fully Direct3D 9-capable consumer graphics chip.

If the R is the successor to the R, then the RV makes sense as the clear successor to the RV – what eventually found its way into the Radeon Pro. Retrieved 23 March A slower chip, thewas launched a few months later, differing only by lower core and memory speeds. ATI demonstrated part of what was capable with pixel shader PS2.

R and its derivatives would form the basis for ATI’s consumer and professional product lines for over 3 years. However, refined design and manufacturing techniques enabled a doubling of transistor count and a significant clock speed gain.


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.

Third time’s the charm? Support in this table refers ari the most current version. The Radeon is nothing more than an AGP 8X version of the Radeonyet it carries a higher model number; marketing at its best, go figure.

This freed up engineering resources that were channeled towards driver improvementsand the performed phenomenally well at launch because of this. Flip chip packaging allows far better cooling of the die by flipping it and exposing it directly to the cooling solution.

Official ATI specifications dictate a bit memory bus for the SE, but most of the manufacturers used a bit bus.

Retrieved from ato https: The end result is that the Zti features a higher Z compression ratio 8: Later inthree new cards were launched: In earlythe cards were replaced by the or, R Radeon was rg350 of the shortest-lived product of ATI, later replaced by the Radeon series. The R was the first board to truly take advantage of a bit memory bus.


The first graphics cards using the R to be released were the Radeon Moving to a new manufacturing process is never a simple task, as it requires a re-layout of the chip, as well as a good amount of analog engineering to make sure that everything works at the lower voltages with the smaller, lower power transistors.

R; internal ArtX codename: Third time’s the charm? Its texture units could perform a new loopback operation which allowed them to sample up to 16 textures per geometry pass.

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. However, refined design and manufacturing techniques enabled a doubling of transistor count and a significant clock speed gain.
