DRIVER: ATI RADEON 9550XL 256MB
The would be the second of ATI’s chips after the to be shipped to third-party manufacturers instead of ATI producing all of its graphics cards, though ATI would still produce cards off of its highest-end chips. Alongside the , the a. This was part of the new DirectX 9 specification, along with more flexible floating-point-based Shader Model 2. See article on R’s pixel shaders. It also lost part of HyperZ III with the removal of the hierarchical z-buffer optimization unit, the same as Radeon Current technologies and software.

The R 256mmb offered advanced anisotropic filtering which incurred a much smaller performance hit than the anisotropic solution of the GeForce4 and other competitors’ cards, while offering significantly improved quality over Radeon ‘s anisotropic filtering implementation which was ati radeon 9550xl 256mb angle dependent.
The architecture of R was quite different from its predecessor, Radeon Rin nearly every way. Views Read Edit View history.
The logo and box package of the was resurrected in to market the unrelated and slower Radeon which is a derivative of the However, refined ati radeon 9550xl 256mb and manufacturing techniques enabled a doubling ati radeon 9550xl 256mb transistor count and a significant clock speed gain. Retrieved 9550xll March Official ATI specifications dictate a bit memory bus for the SE, but most of the manufacturers used a bit bus.
The other two variants were thewhich was simply a lower-clocked Pro, and the SE, which had half the pixel processing units disabled could sometimes be enabled again.
In earlythe cards were replaced by the or, R HDCP is mandatory for the output of certain audio formats, placing additional constraints on the multimedia setup.

Flip chip packaging allows far better cooling of the die by flipping it and exposing it ati radeon 9550xl 256mb to the cooling solution.

R; internal ArtX codename: Retrieved 7 December rsdeon ATI, however, had not only doubled their bus to bit, but also integrated an advanced crossbar memory controller, somewhat similar to NVIDIA ‘s memory technology. A compatible HDCP display is also needed for this. In falla slightly faster variant, the Mobility Ati radeon 9550xl 256mb was launched which was still based upon the RV, and not the older R of the desktop Radeon despite the naming similarity.
They were raddon to maintain a performance lead over the recently launched GeForce FX 256m, which it managed to do without difficulty.
Since all of the R chips were based on the same physical die, ATI’s margins on products were low. Another selling point for the fadeon that it was still a single-slot card, compared to the dual-slot requirements of the FX and FX The R, with its next-generation architecture giving it unprecedented features and performance, would have been superior to any R refresh.
The processors also include 2D GUI accelerationvideo acceleration, and multiple display outputs. A few months later, the and PRO were ati radeon 9550xl 256mb.
Matrox had released their Parhelia several months earlier, afi this board did not show great gains with its bit bus. Ati radeon 9550xl 256mb and its derivatives would form the basis for ATI’s consumer and professional product lines for over 3 years. ATI Technologies products Video cards.
Radeon 9000 Series
The R was the first board to truly take advantage of a bit memory bus. The performance and quality ati radeon 9550xl 256mb offered by the R GPU is considered to be one of the greatest in the history of 3D graphics, alongside the achievements GeForce and Voodoo Graphics.
Another “RV” board followed in earlyon the Radeon ati radeon 9550xl 256mb, which was a Radeon with a lower core clock though an identical memory clock and bus width. Third time’s the charm? This page was last edited on 20 Mayat These were Rs with higher clock speeds, and improvements to the shader units and memory controller which enhanced anti-aliasing performance.

The still held its own against the revised FXprimarily and significantly in tasks involving heavy SM2. See article on R’s pixel shaders. The textures can be any combination of one, two, or three dimensions with bilineartrilinearor anisotropic filtering.
