UVD 7 [18] [d]. 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 Crossfire systems. For example, the X uses 4 “quads”. It also gains three extra vertex shaders, bringing the total to 5 units.

At the end auss the pipeline, the texture addressing processors are now decoupled from pixel shader, so any unused texturing units can be dynamically allocated to pixels that need more texture layers.

This generation has support for all recent memory types, including GDDR4.

The chip also ups the vertex shader number from 6 on X to 8. Basically the chip can spread out memory requests faster and more directly to the RAM chips. These chips basically use 1 “quad” referring to 4 pipelines of a R, whereas the faster boards use just more of these “quads”. RV, for example, has two internal bit buses instead. There is actually a fifth stop, one that is significantly less complex, designed for the PCI Express interface and video input.


X was not behind schedule, and was always planned as the “spring refresh” chip.

The X cards have 3 pixel shaders on each pipeline instead of 1, giving a total of 48 pixel shader units. Ruby’s latest nemesis, Cyn, was composed ofpolygons. Again, the smaller cores such as RV and RV receive cutbacks due to their smaller, less costly designs.

HDCP is mandatory for the output of certain audio formats, placing additional constraints on the multimedia setup. The next major change to the core is with its memory bus. aasus

The X series has two parts, which are quite different with regards to performance. As is typical for an ATI video card release, a selection of real-time 3D demonstration programs were released at launch. The demo showcased a highly complex environment, with x155 dynamic range lighting HDR and dynamic soft shadows.

ATI Technologies products Video cards. In addition to ring bus, each memory channel now has the granularity of bits, which improves memory efficiency when performing small memory requests.


The X was based on the R core and was sold as an ultra-low-budget part. 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. Its advantage over X is both lower power consumption and heat output. Retrieved 7 December X was quickly replaced by X because of its delayed release. The RV has a 3: In other projects Wikimedia Commons.

The problem had been almost random in how it affected the prototype chips, making it quite difficult to finally identify. This page was last edited on 8 Mayat 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. Retrieved 23 March The chip’s single “quad” has 3 pixel shader processors per pipeline, similar to the design of R’s 4 quads.
