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.

ATI RADEON 7000 graphics card – Radeon 7000 – 64 MB Series

The core speed was Mhz and the 5. A forum post by an ATI engineer in clarified this:. The R introduced HyperZan early culling technology maybe inspired by the Tile Rendering present in St Microelectronics PowerVR chips that became the way to go in graphic evolution and generation by generation rendering optimization, and can be considerend the first non tile rendering-based and so DX7 compatible card to use a Zti optimization.

It is the basis for a variety of other succeeding products. A compatible HDCP display is also needed for this. The processors also include 2D GUI accelerationvideo acceleration, and multiple display outputs. 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.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Unfortunately, the third texture unit did not get much use in games during the card’s lifetime because software was not frequently performing more than dual texturing.

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.

The performance difference was especially noticeable in bit colorwhere both the GeForce2 GTS and Voodoo 5 were far ahead. ATI produced a real-time wti for their new card, to showcase its new features. The card also had been described as Radeon in the months leading up to its launch, possibly to draw comparisons with the competing Nvidia card, although the moniker was dropped with the launch of the final product.

At the end of the day, this means that DirectX 8. Among the effects are environment-mapped bump mappingdetail textures, glass reflections, mirrors, realistic water simulation, light maps, texture compressionplanar reflective surfaces, and portal-based visibility. This is also true of GeForce and GeForce2. The Radeon launched in the second half of alongside the Radeon R 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.


Consisting of 3 different functions, it allows the Radeon to perform very competitively compared to competing designs with higher fillrates and bandwidth on paper. Some of you have tweaked the registry and gotten the driver to export a 1.

This page was last edited der 8 Mayat Rbased GPUs have forward-looking programmable shading capability in their pipelines; however, the chips are not flexible enough to support the Microsoft Direct3D specification for Pixel Shader 1.

It basically improves the overall efficiency of the 3D rendering processes.

Support in this table refers to the most current version. However, the Radeon could close the gap and occasionally outperform its fastest competitor, the GeForce2 GTS, in bit color.

Retrieved 23 March The fact that that registry key exists indicates that we did some experiments in the driver, not that we are half way done implementing pixel shaders on RADEON. Edr Read Edit View history.
