Radeon HD series – Wikipedia

We’ve tested no less than 11 cards over tests: Fascinating stuff, I’ve got to put a bookmark in my calendar to remind me to come back to this next year when RV is released pending no further difficulties. As of Marchthis elusive AGP card remains among the very last cards using the aging bus. The last few weeks have been full of blood, sweat and BIOS revisions in the bit-tech benchmarking sweatshop.

Webarchive template wayback links. With new and improved drivers from AMD and Nvidia and a whole batch of new graphically intensive games to test with, we’ve retested seven high end graphics cards to see how they perform in Far Cry 2, Fallout 3 and more! Its direct competition was nVidia’s GeForce serieswhich launched in the same month. 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.

Fitted with a custom cooler and packing increased clocks on the core, shader and memory, we find out how it compares with the competiton. After claiming the single card performance crown, the X2 is proving immensely popular amongst high end enthusiasts.


Sapphire has come to market with a custom Radeon HD X2 and we take it for a quick test drive. It definitely didn’t deserve to be given the 9-series branding, that’s for sure.

Last week AMD announced the Radeon HD under a bit of a dv770 after cards shipped out with an incorrect number of shaders enabled.

These two features increase total bandwidth for dual-GPU designs to Then meet the Palit Revolution Deluxe, a factory overclocked X2 sporting a massive triple slot, dual fan cooler.

Read on to find out He’ll meet you in the lobby on the 5th floor. Although we’re a little late with our RV architecture analysis for reasons well beyond my controlwhat was a bad situation personally has turned into a good time to step outside the melting pot and think a bit more.

The Radeon HD series has been transitioned to legacy support, where drivers will atii updated only to fix bugs instead of being optimized for new rv7700. Support is available for Microsoft Windows at release, for Linux with Catalyst 8.

Does Nvidia have a future? Atti 7 December The free and open-source “Radeon” graphics driver supports most of the features implemented into the Radeon line of GPUs. In other words, the company was attempting to spoil AMD’s launch by counter-launching the day before. AMD releases Catalyst 9. Read on to find out how it gets on.


We walked around 30 feet into a small room with a table and some chairs, there was a speakerphone in the middle of the table. The RV retains the R’s 4 Quad ROP cluster count, however, they are faster and now have dedicated hardware-based AA resolve in addition to the shader-based resolve of the R ev770.

Find out which products are the best of the year, and also which innovations have caught our eye during R was too hot and too late and this caused many to believe that the Radeon HD XT was indeed a failure. The Radeon HD series has been on a roll ever since its release.

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 ev770 high-end with multiple GPUs.
