ATI SAPPHIRE RADEON 9600 ATLANTIS DRIVER

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. 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. 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. Its texture units could perform a new loopback operation which allowed them to sample up to 16 textures per geometry pass. While this differed from the older chips using 2 or 3 for the original Radeon texture units per pipeline, this did not mean R could not perform multi-texturing as efficiently as older chips.

HDCP is mandatory for the output of certain audio formats, placing additional constraints on the multimedia setup.

The architecture of R was quite different from its predecessor, Radeon Rin nearly every way. In earlythe cards were replaced by the or, R Another selling point for the was that it was still a single-slot card, compared to the dual-slot requirements of the FX and FX Views Sti Edit View history.

See article on R’s pixel shaders. A compatible HDCP display is also needed for this.

ATI demonstrated part of what was capable with pixel shader PS2. The still held its own against the revised FXprimarily and significantly in tasks involving heavy SM2. One major change with the manufacturing of the core was the use of the flip-chip sappgirea technology not used previously on video cards.

R; internal ArtX codename: Support in this table refers to the most current version. The other two variants were thewhich was simply a lower-clocked Pro, and the SE, which had half the pixel processing units sapphige could sometimes be enabled again. They were designed to maintain a performance lead over the recently launched GeForce FX Ultra, which it managed to do without difficulty.

Retrieved 23 March Meanwhile, the also became popular because it could in some cases be modified into the much more ztlantis The demo was a real-time implementation of noted 3D graphics researcher Paul Debevec ‘s paper on the topic of high dynamic range rendering.

Aati first graphics cards using the R to be released were the Radeon This trade-off in precision offered the best combination of transistor usage and image quality for the manufacturing process at the time. Retrieved atlanntis December 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.

However, refined design and manufacturing techniques enabled a doubling of transistor count and a significant clock speed gain. Radeon introduced ATI’s multi-sample gamma-corrected anti-aliasing scheme. A few months later, the and PRO were launched.

The logo and box package of atlantks was resurrected in to market the unrelated and slower Radeon which is a derivative of the These were Rs with higher clock speeds, and improvements to the shader units and memory controller which enhanced anti-aliasing performance.

Matrox had released their Parhelia several months earlier, but this board did not show great gains with its bit bus. Khanlaunched in August The chip adopted aati architecture consisting of 8 pixel pipelines, each with 1 texture mapping unit an 8×1 design. Another “RV” board followed in earlyon the Radeonwhich was a Radeon with a lower core clock though an identical memory clock and bus width.

The processors also include 2D GUI accelerationvideo acceleration, and multiple display outputs. 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 raedon memory latency limitations.
