If he is using it for an existing system, what are the specs on that system – it may not be enough system for the top-end video cards I think someone else here asked this already. I can write my own website too I’d prefer sapphire to powercolor, though, just because the greater problem is finding one which has a reasonable price, and not an old inflated price from when it was a top dog. Originally posted by zathras2: Official ATI specifications dictate a bit memory bus for the SE, but most of the manufacturers used a bit bus. The factors that influence his preferences have more to do with the programming aspect of things, than gaming. The list goes on.

He admitted the NV3x chips are very “sensitive” to optimizations, but explained that color precision isn’t the issue so much as 9800xtt ordering is. Joined Dec 28, Messages 3, 0.

The site itself has some interesting reads for an aspiring game maker. They are both cut down versions and won’t offer the performance of a true Pro although they are significantly less expensive.

Son wants an ATI RADEON 9600, or 9800 XT for Christmas – Which one? (Bought X800 Pro)

It’s nice to have supportive parents. In these simple, theoretical measures, it’s a tight race. If he’s radeoh making his own name, perhaps add a copy of BradyGames-Game Design: He has very specific reasons for asking for the cards he did. Basically the bad drivers in XP would cause Direct3D to not work right at all, which very well may be your problem in Vista Some frank words about our testing Because of the recent controversies over various graphics benchmarks and game benchmarks, we are somewhat unsure how to handle graphics performance testing properly right now.

During the course of our conversation, I took away a couple of important bits of information that are relevant here. A slower chip, theradeonn launched a few months later, differing only by lower core and memory speeds.

You pay more for something that isn’t much faster than a Pro model.

This trade-off in precision offered the best combination of transistor usage and image quality for the manufacturing process at the time.

He doesn’t care if they are used, just that they have the info he needs. Meanwhile, the also became popular because it could in some cases be modified into the much more powerful Of course we can get the books later.

Yep, this is definitely college level stuff. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Also, I’ve included results for several benchmarks that we know are somehow compromised by application-specific optimizations that reduce image quality for performance.

R was the aeic fully Direct3D 9-capable consumer graphics chip. Wrink Ars Tribunus Militum Registered: But you can try them anyway. Radeon R Radeon R Nov 27, Posts: He raddon to be able to depend on the card being stable.

Since all of the R chips were based on the same physical die, ATI’s margins on products were low. Steam names the best-selling games of One major change with the manufacturing of the core was the use of the flip-chip packaginga technology not used previously on video dadeon.
