Increase the framebuffer volume. Somehow, these two trends coexist, this creeping exclusivity and the constant march of semiconductor progress. AoD benchmark where the Depth of Field functions incorrectly on v GeForce FX Ultra. That is why the R XT easily wins. Their response is the upcoming NV

Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method.

ATI Radeon 9800 XT

Trust me when I say that after reading this review, you will be impressed. Actually, only the clock speeds differ. The settings are equal for all the cards tested.

I’m glad ATI changes its attitude towards appearance of their products and now we can see a really beautiful cooler,which is also very effective. Now that by itself is not going to work miracles, yet in memory limited situations loads of high quality textures, filtering and AA modes it will help 9800x here and there. Beyond that, the R has all the familiar R features, including support for floating-point pixel formats, programmable shaders, and F-buffer logic that enables longer shader programs without conventional multipass rendering.

With the new cooler, new PCB layout, and tweaked silicon, ATI says the XT is more overclockable than its forerunner, although we haven’t had the card long enough to test that theory just yet. The fan sits high but it’s shifted well to the left, that is why installation of low-profile PCI cards won’t hamper cooling. Other changes from the Radeon Pro to the XT are similarly simple.


ATI Radeon XT |

It runs a lower speeds during normal use, and kicks up to a faster speed when the R chip gets a workout. The higher the memory speed the better cooling is needed. Video 3Digests Video cards: Dell returns to the stock market after six years.

In general, this benchmark works more or less well on these drivers. There are some tests where it yields to its counterpart but remember that we used the overclocked NV35 as 980xt NV38, i. BioShock Infinite and Metro: Also, to keep the R chip cool at its higher clock speeds, the Radeon XT comes stock with a fancy new copper cooler, like so:.

In these simple, theoretical measures, it’s a tight race. New on the Radeon XT is a thermal diode. It’s an interesting approach but set a little too safe in my opinion. The Radeon XT sports a fancy new spoiler. Graphics Previous page Next page. Although you can’t read the temperature of your graphics core, your hardware will monitor it. At the same time, the breakaway from the MB card was inconsiderable. It’s the first time when ATI uses heatsinks for the memory chips.


The engineers worked well on improving the technological processes, and now we can see 9800xy revisions of the R and RV able to run at higher clock speeds.

So, what’s the difference between the R and its predecessor? These two products now crown their own niches: I have to make a quick sidenote here, OverDrive is at default disabled. These Ferraris made of silicon are growing ever more expensive, and in turn, more exclusive to own. Actually, they are nothing but overclocked versions of the previous chips and cards.

If you need patch 49 which is not easy to find and the demo benchmarks let me know by email. They are releasing the Radeon HDa mainstream product at a budget price.

GeForce Hotfix Driver Of course, the same could be said for the cooler on the Radeon XT’s primary competitor; the GeForce FX Ultra’s blower is quiet at low speeds, and not 98800xt terribly loud going flat out.
