Later drivers do not differentiate the Radeon LE from other Radeon R cards and the HyperZ hardware is enabled by default, though there may be visual anomalies on cards with HyperZ hardware that is defective. This page was last edited on 8 May , at After this and all older R Radeon cards were discontinued, the R series was subsequently known as the Radeon , in keeping with ATI’s new naming scheme. Around the time that the Radeon and were announced, rival Nvidia released its GeForce 3 Ti and Ti, the and Ti are direct competitors but the and Ti are not. The processors also include 2D GUI acceleration , video acceleration, and multiple display outputs. Consisting of 3 different functions, it allows the Radeon to perform very competitively compared to competing designs with higher fillrates and bandwidth on paper.

However, the Radeon could close the gap and occasionally outperform its fastest competitor, the GeForce2 GTS, in bit color.
The R was built on a nm semiconductor rb100 process. Among the effects afi environment-mapped bump mappingdetail textures, glass reflections, mirrors, realistic water simulation, light maps, texture compressionplanar reflective surfaces, and portal-based visibility.
The performance difference was especially noticeable in bit colorwhere both the GeForce2 GTS and Voodoo 5 were far ahead. A compatible HDCP display is also needed for this. These are just a few examples of the use of the word shader in the game industry nevermind the movie production industry which uses many different types of shaders, including those used by Pixar’s RenderMan.
Support in this table refers to the most current version. In terms of performance, Radeon scores lower than the GeForce2 in most benchmarks, even with HyperZ activated.
Views Read Edit View history. It also allowed the card to operate with asynchronous clock operation, whereas the original R was always clocked synchronously with the RAM.
ATi Radeon R100 Series
These cards were produced until mid, when they were essentially replaced by the Radeon RV In 3D rendering the processor can write 2 pixels to the framebuffer and sample 3 texture maps per pixel per clock. The silicon just can’t do what is required to support 1.
The increased density and various rvv100 to the architecture allowed the GPU to function at higher clock speeds. The processors also include 2D GUI accelerationvideo acceleration, and multiple display outputs.
Unlike its rivals, however, the LE has considerable performance potential, as is possible to enable HyperZ through a system registry alteration, plus there is considerable overclocking room. The Radeon launched in the second half of alongside the Radeon R Additionally, you ait to understand that the phrase “shader” is an incredibly ambiguous graphics term.
Future releases of DirectX will have 2. ATI produced a real-time demo for their new card, to showcase its new features. This page was last edited on 8 Mayat ATI Technologies products Video cards.
There are various practical technical reasons for this. Later drivers do not differentiate the Radeon LE from other Radeon R cards and the HyperZ hardware is enabled by default, though there may be visual anomalies on cards with HyperZ hardware that is defective.

Consisting of 3 different functions, it allows the Radeon to perform very competitively compared to competing designs with higher fillrates and bandwidth on paper. The chip doesn’t support 1. After this and all older R Radeon cards were discontinued, the R series was subsequently known as the Radeonin keeping with ATI’s new naming scheme. With the final release of DirectX 8. A forum post by an ATI engineer in clarified this:.
