Radeon X1000 series
The primary change between R and R is that ATI changed the pixel shader processor to texture processor ratio. Retrieved 7 December Retrieved 23 March See article on R’s pixel shaders.
Changes necessary for SM3. The card was launched on August 23, The chip’s single “quad” has 3 pixel shader processors per pipeline, similar to x15550 design of R’s 4 quads.
Unlike the X, the X has 16 pixel shader processors as well, and equal ratio of texturing to pixel shading capability. Your name or email address: TechSpot is dedicated to computer enthusiasts and power users.

The R is the foundation for a line of DirectX 9. Join the community here.

UVD 7  [d]. Yes, my password is: Radeon R5xx Acceleration v. Which graphics card do you have? This provides temporary storage necessary to keep the pipelines fed by having work available as much as possible. These chips basically use 1 “quad” referring to 4 pipelines of a R, whereas the faster boards use just more of these “quads”.
The X was based on the R core and was sold as an ultra-low-budget part. Webarchive template wayback links. At the end of 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.
In addition to ring bus, each memory channel now has the granularity of bits, which improves memory efficiency when performing small memory requests. 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. Views Read Edit View history. This series is the budget solution of the X series and is based on the RV core.
RV, for example, has two internal bit buses instead.
As is typical for an ATI video card release, a selection of real-time 3D demonstration programs were released at launch.
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. Sign up for freeit takes 30 seconds.

Radeon HD Series. 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. R and R had nearly identical memory controller designs, atii the former being a bug fixed release designed for higher clock speeds. This page was last edited on 8 Mayat
