R was the first fully Direct3D 9-capable consumer graphics chip. This trade-off in precision offered the best combination of transistor usage and image quality for the manufacturing process at the time. A compatible HDCP display is also needed for this. This freed up engineering resources that were channeled towards driver improvements , and the performed phenomenally well at launch because of this.

ATI Radeon Pro (AGP 8x, MB) Overview – CNET
The processors also include 2D GUI accelerationvideo acceleration, and multiple display outputs. The demo was a real-time implementation of noted 3D graphics researcher Paul Debevec ‘s paper on the topic of high dynamic range rendering. The R, with its next-generation architecture giving it unprecedented features and performance, would have been superior to any R refresh. However, refined design and manufacturing techniques enabled a doubling of transistor count and a significant clock speed gain.
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. 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.
R would become one of the GPUs with the longest useful lifetime in history, allowing playable performance in new games at least 3 years after its launch.
Radeon Series – Wikipedia
Worthy of note regarding the Rbased generation is that the entire lineup utilized single-slot cooling solutions.
Radeon was one of the shortest-lived product of ATI, later replaced by the Radeon series. The demands of the 8×1 architecture required more bandwidth than the bit bus designs of the previous generation due to having double the texture and pixel fillrate.
The R also offered advanced anisotropic filtering which 6900le 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 highly angle dependent. At the time, this was quite astonishing, and resulted in the widespread acceptance of AA and AF as critical, truly usable features.

Third time’s the charm? The logo and box package of the was resurrected in to market the unrelated and slower Radeon which is a derivative of the One major change with the manufacturing of the core was the use of the flip-chip 9600lsa technology not used previously on aati cards. With a transistor count of million, it was the largest and most complex GPU of the time. Later inthree new cards were launched: R and its derivatives would form the basis for ATI’s consumer and professional product lines for over 3 years.
ATI Radeon 9600LE.
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. Radeon ‘s advanced architecture was very efficient and, of course, more qti compared to its older peers of These were Rs with higher clock speeds, and improvements to the shader units and memory controller which enhanced anti-aliasing performance.
Meanwhile, the also became popular because it could in some cases be modified into 6900le much more powerful See article on R’s pixel shaders.
While this differed from the older chips using 2 or 3 for the original Radeon texture units per pipeline, this did not mean R could not perform multi-texturing as efficiently as older chips. Matrox had released their Parhelia atii months earlier, but this board did not show great gains with its bit bus.
The architecture of R was quite different from its predecessor, Radeon Rin nearly every way. R; internal ArtX codename: Being the first laptop chip to offer DirectX 9. Another selling point for the was that it was still a single-slot card, compared to the dual-slot requirements of the FX and FX ATI Technologies products Video cards. Retrieved 23 March
