In these simple, theoretical measures, it’s a tight race. The memory modules are bigger, and they are 8 instead of Somehow, these two trends coexist, this creeping exclusivity and the constant march of semiconductor progress. By the way, the overclocked version of the latter is codenamed NV The Ultra is faster with multitexturing, however, and has even more memory bandwidth than the XT. It’s the first time when ATI uses heatsinks for the memory chips. I’m glad ATI changes its attitude towards appearance of their products and now we can see a really beautiful cooler,which is also very effective.

Test results Before we start examining 2D quality, I should say there are no complete techniques for objective 2D quality estimation because: That’s the way ATI’s anisotropy works. Man, what a hectic 12 months in the graphics industry these have been. I hope the emulated NV38 won’t differ much from the real one, and we won’t have to retest the cards.

ATI’s Radeon XT graphics card – The Tech Report – Page 1

As what ATI is doing today is pretty remarkable. There are some tests where it yields to its counterpart but remember that we used the overclocked NV35 as the NV38, i. The larger fan on the XT’s cooler varies its speed according to chip temperatures. This is also actually an overclocked version of the NV The newer drivers will be used ato in the TR: In our 3Digest you can find full comparison characteristics for video cards of this and other classes.


I’m glad ATI changes its attitude towards appearance of their products and now we can see a really beautiful cooler,which is also very effective.

On September 30 ATI pompously announced two new products: A couple of weeks after its release, we received the youngest baby from ATI to review and although submitted a tad late; the product we are going to review today is a true powerhouse in the fierce graphics arena, a product developed under codename R It’s nice ahi Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays.

LG HU85L projector needs but two inches to cast a 90″ picture. Actually, they are nothing but overclocked versions of the previous chips and cards.

For proof see today’s Exhibit A, ATI’s brand-new Radeon XT, a bright red, five-hundred-dollar graphics card with eight pixel pipelines and more bandwidth than a Modena’s tachometer. High-End and Middle-End respectively.

New on the Radeon XT is a thermal diode. Emulation of the NV38 improved its performance a little.

ATI RADEON 9800 XT graphics card – Radeon 9800 XT – 256 MB

GeForce Hotfix Driver The speed gain is not great. GeForce FX Ultra.


The fan sits at but it’s shifted well to the left, that is why installation of low-profile PCI cards won’t hamper cooling. Unfortunately the makes of HL2 Valve have had a very nasty experience with a hacker, Half-life 2 leaked and it’s extremely quiet at Valve. Besides, it’s not big and the card takes only one AGP slot. It’s an interesting approach but set a little too safe in my opinion.

Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method. Also, to keep the R chip cool at its higher clock speeds, the Radeon XT comes 9800xy with a fancy new 9800zt cooler, like so:. BioShock Infinite and Metro: The product ladies and gentlemen is nothing new in the sense of technology. The results obtained with the v Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing Actually, only the clock speeds differ.
