The other two variants were the , which was simply a lower-clocked Pro, and the SE, which had half the pixel processing units disabled could sometimes be enabled again. 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. Views Read Edit View history. The chip adopted an architecture consisting of 8 pixel pipelines, each with 1 texture mapping unit an 8×1 design. Support in this table refers to the most current version.

Worthy of note regarding the Rbased generation is that the entire lineup utilized single-slot cooling solutions. Retrieved from ” https: The would be the second of ATI’s chips after the to be shipped to third-party manufacturers instead of ATI producing all of its graphics cards, though ATI would still produce cards off of its highest-end chips.

Alongside thethe a. The logo and box package of the was resurrected in to market the unrelated and slower Radeon which is a derivative of the HDCP is mandatory for the output of certain audio formats, placing additional constraints on the multimedia setup.


It also lost part radeln HyperZ III with the removal of the hierarchical z-buffer optimization unit, the same as Radeon The chip adopted an architecture consisting of 8 pixel pipelines, each with 1 texture mapping unit an 8×1 design.

With a transistor count of million, it was the largest and most complex GPU of the time.

Sapphire RADEON 9600 Atlantis graphics card – Radeon 9600 – 128 MB Series

The textures can be any combination of one, two, or three dimensions with bilineartrilinearor anisotropic filtering. Official ATI specifications dictate a bit memory bus for the SE, but most of the manufacturers used a bit bus.

Besides advanced architecture, reviewers radeoh took note of ATI’s change in strategy. See article on R’s pixel shaders.

Radeon introduced ATI’s multi-sample gamma-corrected anti-aliasing scheme. Support in this table refers to the most current version. Third time’s the charm? Matrox had released their Parhelia several months earlier, but this board did not show great gains with its bit bus.

Radeon was one of the shortest-lived product of ATI, later replaced by the Radeon series. Views Read Edit View history.

Later inthree new cards were launched: A few months later, the and PRO were launched. This trade-off in precision offered the best combination of transistor usage and image quality for the manufacturing process at the time. At the 96600, this was quite astonishing, and resulted in the widespread acceptance of AA and AF as critical, truly usable features.


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. Retrieved 7 December The first radein cards using the R to be released were the Radeon ATI Technologies products Video cards. Retrieved 23 March ATI thus could achieve higher clock speeds.

R and its derivatives would form the basis for ATI’s consumer and professional product lines for over 3 years. UVD 7 [1] [d]. One major change with the manufacturing of the core was the use of the flip-chip packaginga technology not used previously on video cards.


A compatible HDCP display is aatlantis needed for this. Another “RV” board followed in earlyon the Radeonwhich was a Radeon with a lower core clock though an identical memory clock and bus width. This was part of the new DirectX 9 specification, along with more flexible floating-point-based Shader Model 2.
