However, GRID does not support anisotropic filtering in game, so we had to force this to 16x using the Forceware and Catalyst drivers. We check out Palit’s completely redesigned card to see if it can stand up against the fierce competition on the market. The internal ring bus from the R and R has been replaced by the combination of a crossbar and an internal hub. This midrange, high-definition graphics card can play every modern game well and is a good value. We dive deep down inside to find out.

The RV also has 10 texture units, each of which can handle 4 addresses, 16 FP32 samples, and 4 FP32 filtering functions per clock cycle. Good performance for the dollar.

However, GRID does not support anisotropic tadeon in game, so we had to force this to 16x using the Forceware and Catalyst drivers. We captured the average and minimum frame rates during the lap, and the results you see below are indicative of around one minute and forty seconds of gameplay average lap time per setting.

Archived from the original on It xxfx only won the hearts and minds of enthusiasts, but it also made Nvidia re-think its pricing structure. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This page was last edited on 8 Mayat UVD 7 [16] [d]. Players can choose from racing tuned saloons through city streets, through to driving Lamborghinis around Le Mans, with all cars displaying a highly detailed damage model. Fitted with a custom cooler and packing increased clocks on the core, shader and memory, we find out how it compares with the competiton.


The free and open-source “Radeon” graphics driver supports most of the features implemented into the Radeon line of GPUs.

PassMark – Radeon HD – Price performance comparison

We have a look at the HD IceQ 4 TurboX to find out whether this card does enough to set itself apart from the crowd of Radeon HD s with aftermarket cooling solutions. We chose the Milan circuit due to the large amount of dynamic track side details like flags and spectators visible from the track, and for the close proximity of track side objects.

The Radeon HD series was announced on September 10, These two features increase total bandwidth for dual-GPU designs to Boasting an impressive aftermarket cooler from Zerotherm and an increased core clock, we take a look to see if it can compete in an increasingly crowded market.

The Radeon HD series has been transitioned to legacy support, where drivers will be updated only to fix bugs instead of being ahi for new applications. Current technologies and software.

Retrieved 7 December In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Featuring an improved design with decoupling capacitors to reduce signal noise, [10] altered ASIC power distribution and re-timed the whole GPU chip, which resulted in a slight increase in die size but overall much better stability at high clock rates and a higher default clock.

Dragon Risingso hopefully GRID will give us a good indication of how hardware will perform in this future title too. Is the credit crunch getting you down and there’s no hope of you ever stretching out for that GeForce GTX ?


The foundation chip, codenamed RVwas announced and demonstrated on June 16, as part of the FireStream and Cinema 2. We’ve put together a range of components which the bit-tech staff personally recommend to take the stress out of upgrading or system building that should suit any budget.

Radeon HD 4830

Mobility Radeon HD Series. We dive deep down inside to find out. We’ve seen the benchmarks and how ATI has comeback from nowhere to reclaim the mainstream performance crown, but what’s behind this sudden change that makes the new HD series so compelling?

As of Marchthis elusive AGP card remains among the very last cards using the aging bus. All products implement TeraScale 1 microarchitecture.

Race Driver: GRID

The free and open-source “Radeon” graphics device drivers are not reverse engineered, but based on documentation released by AMD.

He was sucked into Intel based side of the PC world by his friend’s at the time, the height of sophisticated technologyand this kicked off a never-ending string of PC purchases and upgrades. Become a fan zti PCMag.

Sometimes slightly slower than comparable Nvidia-based cards.
