In October of '05 ATI officially unveiled a new family of graphics cards based on the company's R520 GPU core and its derivatives. With the R520 ATI introduced a new "Ultra-Threaded" architecture, along with their new Ring Bus memory controller, and a more powerful video engine dubbed AVIVO, among numerous other things. Unfortunately though, the R520 and its derivatives, which were the first members of what eventually became known as the X1K family of products, were a long time coming. The move to a 90nm manufacturing process in conjunction with a simple circuit bug that was replicated throughout the chip, resulted in ATI missing almost an entire product cycle. For about four months,... Read more...
Ryan and the gang at PC Perspective have just published their review of the Asus Extreme AX1800 XT TOP flagship graphics card. Based on the X1800 GPU, the card is overclocked well beyond reference clock frequencies. This monster of a graphics card also features a beefy heatsink assembly that should effectively cool the GPU while keeping noise output at a reasonable level. Although impressive, this graphcis card is a questionable purchase at best right now with ATI's next generation flagship GPU being just around the corner. The Asus AX1800XT TOP is one of the fastest single GPU graphics cards we have ever tested, and the package that surrounds... Read more...
ASUS has continuously put out quality card after card. Always embracing high-end hardware, Hardware Zone reviews the ASUS EAX1800XT TOP, which comes overclocked and a fairly quiet cooler. It's hard to get better than that. "All that fancy cooling on the EAX1800XT TOP is nothing but a single-minded bid to overclock the Radeon X1800 XT 512MB from its default 625MHz / 1500MHz DDR to an impressive 700MHz / 1600MHz DDR. Unfortunately we hit the limits of the card pretty soon after that, as the most we managed was only 720MHz for the core and 1620MHz DDR for the memory, a rather small and disappointing jump in frequency."...

Although the net has been full of images supposedly showing ATI's upcoming R580 core, the first bit of news that seems to be genuine appears to be a leaked manual from ATI for their X1900 graphics card. Daily Tech has been kind enough to mirror the 160 page user manual which can be downloaded for your viewing pleasure. Without a doubt, the information within the manual certainly seems interesting. Flip through the manual and decide for yourself how genuine this .pdf truly is.Graphic Features: Native PCI Express(R) X16 bus support, 256MB or 512 MB GDDR3 on-board memory, Full support for Microsoft(R) DirectX(R) Shader Model 3.x., High performance Ultra-Threaded shader engine, Eight vertex shader...

The guys at NGOHQ took some time with ATI's X1800 to see what this card could do in the overclocking arena.  What they found was the X1800 was quite the little overclocker indeed.  Utilizing ATITOOL, this experiment yielded impressive results, all without any physical modifications required.  This is a brief write up that didn't include any benchmark comparisons.  However. the focus here was on the overclocking process, and overclock the X1800 did. "ATi has finally made the leap and given overclockers a reason to celebrate. In their new RADEON X1800 series they have given us the ability to modify the GPU/DDR voltages without... Read more...
If the latest bit of news regarding NVIDIA's next flagship GPU got you excited, CES has spilled some additional information regarding the next best thing from ATI to capture your attention once more. Dubbed the Radeon X1900, ATI's next flagship GPU seems to have some exceptional performance in store and appears ready to launch in the very near future. Several sources have posted some rough performance comparisons between the Radeon X1900 and the GeForce 7900. Should these numbers be close to what we'll see on our own testbeds, we're in for some incredible new hardware to play the latest and greatest games.What we can say though is that so far there's a distinct absence of the familiar ATi words...

The gang at HardOCP have taken a look at ATI's current flagship Radeon X1800 XT in a Crossfire dual-GPU configuration. Although NVIDIA's SLI is typically seen as being more refined and polished right now, Brent seems to be impressed with the performance of this setup. For a second opinion, you can reference our own review of this setup and then make a decision for yourself. With the next generation flagship cards right around the corner, you might want to hold onto that cash that's burning a hole in your pocket and make a decision a bit down the road.The bottom line is that the Radeon X1800 XT is still playing catch up on the single card front with a single GeForce 7800 GTX 512. But since the... Read more...
Hello Everyone. We want to let you all know that we've just posted a new article where we evaluate the features and performance of HIS' Radeon X1950 XT IceQ3 Turbo. Here's a snip from the piece: "Today, we will be checking out HIS' take on the Radeon X1950 XT, the HIS X1950XT IceQ3 Turbo. As the name implies, the HIS X1950 XT uses the company's IceQ3 cooling apparatus which performs better than the "stock" model and is much quieter to boot. The Turbo in the name also means that the card is guaranteed to overclock to a certain speed, in this case a guaranteed core overclock to the stock XTX speed of 650MHz."... Read more...
As our good friend Scott over at Tech Report points out in his "TR Awards 2005", both ATi and NVIDIA have been more than capable of earning the infamous "meaty middle digit" award with product launches that equate to nothing more than science projects or noise-makers.  Evidence of this you ask?  Well the GeForce 7800 GTX 512 is scarcer than hen's teeth although NVIDIA launched it in November and the late December release of ATi' Radeon X1800 CrossFire still has yet to produce available stock in the retail channel. Hopefully ATi can react in short order, since clearly these versions of CrossFire products are much more competitive versus the X800 series solutions out... Read more...
With the NDA a thing of the past, the reviews of ATI's flagship X1800 XT Crossfire configuration have begun to pour in. We've listed all the reviews we could find thus far and will give you a teaser of what Marco thought in our own review of ATI's latest pride and joy. Hot Hardware Beyond3D Anandtech PC Perspective ExtremeTech  In the end, X1800 XT CrossFire proved to be a very high performing platform, that offered excellent image quality at smooth frame rates. We are a bit concerned over the instability we experienced during some of our testing, but we suspect these issues will be ironed out with future driver releases. We also suspect ATI will be able to wring more performance out of... Read more...
The onslaught of ATI announcements this quarter continues today, with the official unveiling of the Radeon X1800 XT Master Edition graphics card -- the "missing link" necessary to run a pair of X1800 cards in a dual-GPU CrossFire configuration. From the end of September '05 through to today, ATI has announced and released a top-to-bottom line-up of graphics products in rapid succession, in an effort to bolster their product lines in time for the peak holiday buying season. But ATI's intentions aren't just about getting products on store shelves in time for Santa to place them under the tree. In frank conversations with representatives from ATI, we were also told that the company's recent... Read more...
The Inquirer reports that ATI has begun shipping reference R580 (possibly called x1900) boards to its vendor partners and has started getting the marketing wheel rolling in preparation for CES. Of particular interest is the reference of an X1900 All-In-Wonder sku which sounds as if it could possibly be ready at teh same time the "standard" X1900 boards ship. With the rising cost of flagship graphics cards over the last year, I hate to imagine what that board would cost. However, with all the bells and whistles with flagship performance on top of it all it might be worth whatever teh asking price will be.ATI's recently shipped reference boards with R580 chip to its partners and is organising...

Fudo reports that a mobile variant of his namesake R520 "Fudo" core should be showing up in the retail channel in the very near future. Armed with sixteen pipelines and some power saving features that were implemented from the core's initial design, ATI could very well have a homerun with their latest mobile core.This chip features sixteen pipelines and it will be powered with ATI's upcoming Avivo marchitecture. We learned that the R520 "Fudo" development team has already implemented power saving marchitecture, so this time ATI was able to make its mobile chip much faster. The chip features 256 Mbit ring memory marchitecture and supports Shader Model 3.0. However, we are not sure about... Read more...
When NVIDIA first resurrected the term "SLI" from the technology archives, it was welcomed back with open arms. Although the exact definition has changed from it's 3Dfx roots, it boils down to two graphics cards working on the same job. The obvious benefit is that two cards should be able to easily outperform even the fastest single card.  The only real problem for some users was that the technology was limited to owners of nForce-based motherboards, and initially that meant having an AMD Athlon processor.  NVIDIA eventually decided to address Intel's huge install-base as well, and nForce 4 SLI - Intel Edition motherboards arrived on the scene.     It has only been...
