ATI has been working for years on a high-performance shader compiler in their driver for their older hardware, so staying with a similar basic design that is compatible offered obvious cost and time savings. X was not behind schedule, and was always planned as the “spring refresh” chip. UVD 7 [18] [d]. This means that RV has the same texturing ability as the X at the same clock speed, but with its 12 pixel shaders it encroaches on X’s territory in shader computational performance. Not only are they fully Shader Model 3 capable, but ATI introduced some innovative advancements in shader threading that can greatly improve the efficiency of the shader units. Retrieved 23 March

Along these ring buses are 4 “stop” points where data exits the ring and going into or out of the memory chips. RV, for example, has two internal bit buses instead. rb530

ATI opted to fit the cards with either MiB or MiB on-board memory foreseeing a future of ever growing demands on local memory size. This generation has support for all recent memory types, including GDDR4. Ruby’s latest nemesis, Cyn, was composed ofpolygons.

The X was based on the R core and was sold as an ultra-low-budget part. This refers to ATI’s plan to boost the efficiency of their GPU, instead of going with a brute force increase in the number of processing units.

Radeon R5xx Acceleration v. See article on R’s pixel shaders. ATI rrv530 taken this step with the expectation that future 3D software will be more pixel shader intensive.

R and R had nearly identical memory controller designs, with the former being a bug fixed release designed for higher clock speeds. X was not behind schedule, and was always planned as the “spring refresh” chip.

The R is the foundation for a line of DirectX 9. When one of the shader quads becomes idle, due to a completion of a task or waiting for other data, the dispatch engine will assign the quad with another task to do in the meantime, with the overall result being a greater utilization of the shader units, theoretically.

The X Pro is the first ATI card that supports native Crossfire implementation by a pair of internal Crossfire connectors, which eliminates the need for the unwieldy external dongle found in older Dv530 systems. The demo showcased a highly complex environment, with high dynamic range lighting HDR and dynamic soft shadows.

X was quickly replaced by X because of its delayed release. Afi AMD Catalyst version that officially supports this series, is With such a large number of threads per “quad”, ATI created a very large general purpose register array that is capable of multiple concurrent reads and writes and has a high-bandwidth connection to each shader array.

The next major change to the core is with its memory bus. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. These chips basically use 1 “quad” referring to 4 pipelines of a R, whereas the faster boards use just more of these “quads”. Because of its smaller design, these cards also offer lower power demands 30 wattsso they run rc530 and can be used in smaller cases.


The chip’s single “quad” has 3 pixel shader processors per pipeline, similar to the design of R’s 4 quads. Retrieved from ” https: Unlike the X, the X has 16 pixel shader at as well, and equal ratio of texturing to pixel shading capability. Radeon HD Series.

UVD 7 [18] [d]. Archived from the original on May 7, Retrieved 23 March The X atk X series fixes several flaws in the X design and adds a significant pixel shading performance boost. Current technologies and software. The X cards have 3 pixel shaders on each pipeline instead of 1, giving a total of 48 pixel shader units.

The chips have 4 texture units4 ROPs4 pixel shadersand 2 vertex shaderssimilar to the older X – X cards. The R5xx family introduced a more advanced onboard motion-video engine.

Around the chip there are two bit ring buses running at the same speed as the DRAM chips, but in opposite directions to reduce latency.
