This modular design allows ATI to build a “top to bottom” line-up using identical technology, saving research and development time and money. Webarchive template wayback links. Views Read Edit View history. The chip also ups the vertex shader number from 6 on X to 8. Basically the chip can spread out memory requests faster and more directly to the RAM chips. This provides temporary storage necessary to keep the pipelines fed by having work available as much as possible.

The X and X series fixes several flaws in the X design and adds a significant pixel shading performance boost.

Rg530 technologies and software. Ruby’s latest nemesis, Cyn, was composed ofpolygons. Retrieved from ” https: Retrieved 23 March Along these ring buses are 4 “stop” points where data exits the ring and going into or out of the memory chips.

There is actually a fifth stop, one that is significantly less complex, designed for the PCI Express interface and video input. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. HDCP is mandatory for the output of certain audio formats, placing additional constraints ahi the multimedia setup. Like its predecessor X, the R chip carries 4 “quads” 4 pipelines eachwhich means it has similar texturing capability rrv530 at the same clock speed as its ancestor, and the NVIDIA series.

This design allows memory accesses to be far quicker though lower latency by virtue of the smaller distance the signals need to move through the GPU, and by increasing the number of banks per DRAM.

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. These chips basically use 1 “quad” referring to 4 pipelines of a R, whereas the faster boards use just more of these “quads”. The Radeon X video cards, that included a R, were released with a delay of several months because ATI engineers discovered a bug within the GPU in a very late stage of the development.

The next major change to the core is with its memory bus. The chip’s single “quad” has 3 pixel atj processors per pipeline, similar to the design of R’s 4 quads.

The R5xx family introduced a more advanced onboard motion-video engine.

The chips have 4 texture units4 ROPs4 pixel shadersand 2 vertex shaderssimilar to the older Rvv530 – X cards. The X series has two parts, which are quite different with regards to performance. Other improvements include x texture support and ATI’s 3Dc normal map compression sees an improvement in compression ratio for more specific situations.

Basically the chip can spread out memory requests faster and more directly to the RAM chips.

Archived from the original on May 7, With chips such as RV and R, where the number of shader units per pipeline triples, the efficiency of pixel shading drops off slightly because these shaders still have the same level of threading resources as the less endowed RV and R ATI has taken this step with the expectation that future 3D software will be more pixel shader intensive.


Radeon R5xx Acceleration v. Its advantage over X is both lower power consumption and heat output. This series is the budget solution of the X series and is based on the RV core. Views Read Edit View history.

ATI opted to fit the cards with either MiB or MiB on-board memory foreseeing a future of ever growing demands on local memory size. UVD 7 [18] [d]. Because of its smaller design, these cards also offer lower power demands 30 wattsso they run cooler and can be used in smaller cases. The Radeon X series using the core was introduced on October 5,and competed primarily against nVidia’s GeForce series. The X Pro is the first ATI card that supports native Crossfire implementation by a pair of internal Crossfire zti, which eliminates the need for the unwieldy external atk found in older Crossfire systems.

The chip also ups the vertex shader number from 6 on X to 8. Changes necessary for SM3. It also gains three extra vertex shaders, bringing the total to 5 units.
