Normally when a manufacturer like AMD tells me they did something, I ask why. Earlier in the week, we published the best games of the year and today it’s time to look back at what’s happened in the technology industry over the last year. I have no idea, perhaps AMD keeps pictures of Derek, Gary and myself on walls to know who to be angry at. This page was last edited on 8 May , at Although we’re a little late with our RV architecture analysis for reasons well beyond my control , what was a bad situation personally has turned into a good time to step outside the melting pot and think a bit more. The last few weeks have been full of blood, sweat and BIOS revisions in the bit-tech benchmarking sweatshop. Join us as we find out whether R was worth the wait — single card and CrossFire testing included.

See article on R’s pixel shaders. ATI’s dual slot X2 cooler not big enough for you? All of a sudden, there was an opening for AMD and just a few weeks ago, everything related to the Radeon HD series launch was going smoothly. Chris Hook seems terribly uninterested in whatever is rc770 out of my mouth at this dinner years ago: Autumn Graphics Card Upgrade Guide.

But both of us all but ignored the biggest part wti RV Well, only if you’ve fitted it wrong!

AMD releases Catalyst 9. Many have been routing for AMD to get back in the game because they felt Nvidia had started taking customers for granted with the GeForce 9-series in particular. Nvidia’s GT GPU arrived just a few days ago – we dive deep into the architecture to find out what’s rv7770 inside the chip.

We check out Palit’s completely redesigned card to see if it can stand up against the fierce competition on the market.

We have a look at the card and subject it to the Crysis Crunch to find out if the Multi-Core cooling solution is up to the task. All products implement Atii 1 microarchitecture. With that said, that wasn’t rvv770 last of our Summer graphics coverage—far from it in fact—as there are still a whole host of things to cover with a few recent product launches from Nvidia and AMD.

Earlier in the week, we published the best games of the year and today it’s time to look back at what’s happened in ari technology industry over the last year. The Radeon HD series was announced on April 28, Will AMD conquer the mainstream like it did the enthusiast sector? We have a look at the HIS Radeon HDwhich happens to be the cheapest card in the UK, to find out how it compares to the fierce competition out there.

Not surprisingly, this irked a number of people at AMD and although we’ve offered the company rv7770 opportunities to respond to Kirk’s assessment, it seems as if AMD would rather let its products do the talking.


We could talk about future GPU trends and architectures, we could talk about GPU accelerated video transcoding or he, along with the rest of the group, could give me the back story on RV The foundation chip, codenamed RVwas announced and demonstrated on June 16, as part of the FireStream and Cinema 2.

In other projects Wikimedia Commons. The RV also has 10 texture units, each of which can handle 4 addresses, 16 FP32 samples, and 4 FP32 filtering functions per clock cycle.

As of Julyother operating systems are not officially supported.

The RV770 Story: Documenting ATI’s Road to Success

gv770 We’ve already seen the Radeon HD X2 re-take the performance crown and we’ve got some multi-GPU madness planned in the near future. Boasting an impressive aftermarket cooler from Zerotherm and an increased core clock, we take a look to see if it can compete in an increasingly crowded market.

We’ve been feverishly putting our new Core i7-based atti card test systems together and now we’re here to report how the graphics landscape is reforming itself. The free and open-source drivers are primarily developed on Linux and for Linux, but have been ported to other operating systems as well. Support in this table refers to the most current version.

What’s more, if you’re late to that game, there’s very little return for that investment — this lead to the decision to focus on the all-important ‘performance mainstream’ price points and then scale performance up to the high-end with multiple GPUs.

Winter Graphics Performance Update. Read on to find out how it fares in the ever competitive world of high performance graphics The free and open-source “Radeon” graphics driver supports most of the features implemented into the Radeon line of GPUs. Instead, that article focused on comprehensively covering the gaming performance of no less than eleven different graphics cards across a range of games at varying resolutions. As always seems to be the case though, things started going a little pear-shaped as a number of over-enthusiastic retailers wanted to get on with selling the cards as soon as they arrived.

In other words, the company was attempting to spoil AMD’s launch by counter-launching the day before.
