You also get a number of deinterlacing enhancements for improving video image quality. Some merchants are saying that they may ship in a week or so, but this is certainly not a launch on the level of the GTX or GT.

HDCP is mandatory for the output of certain audio formats, placing additional constraints on the multimedia setup. Some report that they sti shipments within a few days, and others don’t really expect shipments for at least a week; and all report that their initial SKUs will be “built by ATI” branded cards.

Three of the cards, including the X XL, should be available todayif all goes according to plan. You can’t receive a TV signal with the Radeon X XT or any other Radeon Xseries cards, but what they can do as part of the Avivo family is decode all kinds of video formats, including the forward-looking H.

That means you can clock the core faster, which was done quite insignificantly for ari model but the increase is there. With Nvidia, all GeForce, and series cards come SLI ready; there is no second, pricier version to worry about. ATI earned itself victorious upstart status with its last generation of Radeon cards. Bandersnatch is here to cap a twisted ATI supplied us with two cards for this test.


Gigantic-screen phone for a gigantic price. The Radeon HD Pro and the Radeon X Series MB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions. Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff! The Bad Takes up two expansion slots; lags on OpenGL-based games such as Doom 3; dual graphics card support depends on a special CrossFire Edition card with a murky release date.

But SLI doesn’t require you to pay a premium to simply add another card. Global Game Awards We don’t have too many details on it yet, but we do know several things.

ATI Radeon X1950 PRO vs ATI X1800 XT

You need a Crossfire ready mainboard, you need a serious processor to be able to handle that brute force, you need a power supply that can handle all these components and you need to invest in two graphics cards.

The most obvious is its double-wide form factor, ironically the same criticism we made of Nvidia’s GeForce Ultra during last generation’s head-to-head. You can expect that ATI’s various board partners will mix and match outputs like always, so you may find some cards using the same chip with one analog CRT connector and one digital LCD output.

ATI unveiled its dual-card CrossFire technology last week. 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.
