The RADEON X300 is the industry’s first graphics processor built using the advanced 110-nanometer silicon process from TSMC. This allows ATI to deliver a quad-pipe, DirectX 9 architecture with exceptional value and with excellent performance in today’s advanced DirectX 9 games – a first in the industry. The feature-rich architecture includes support for fast multisampling anti-aliasing, full-speed, full-precision shaders and delivers twice the performance of previous entry-level offerings.
Both the RADEON X600 and RADEON X800 are built using TSMC’s low k, 130-nanometer silicon process to deliver high-speed, high-performance visual processors for home or office use. Featuring advanced image quality and performance enhancing technologies originally found only in high-end VPUs, the RADEON X600 is perfect for the high-volume mainstream and performance segments of the market.
For enthusiasts and power users, the RADEON X800 enables high-definition gaming through its award-winning performance and exclusive features such as 3Dc™, ATI’s new image enhancement compression technology. 3Dc easily allows game developers to create better-looking games by using high-resolution normal maps. The RADEON X800’s highly parallel, scalable architecture, high-speed GDDR3 memory and high engine clock speeds makes the RADEON X800 products the fastest on the planet.
ATI’s RADEON X-series visual processors use a full, native 16-lane PCI Express bus interconnect to transfer data between the VPU and CPU in both directions simultaneously. They offer flexible support for multi-display configurations including VGA, DVI and TV out. The RADEON X-series of products are supported by ATI’s CATALYST suite of software which includes a unified display driver and Hydravision, ATI’s multi-display management software.
