  • ATI fixes that annoying st-st-stuttering gl-gli-gl-bug


    What is it with ATI and stuttering? When Half-Life 2 was released, the game was totally unplayable on my rig (With a Radeon 9600 Pro, no slouch at the time) and pretty much everyone else’s due to constant and crippling stuttering and the still-dangerous audio-loop crash. The game was allegedly designed with almost my exact hardware configuration in mind, yet it was totally busted… Read More

  • Concept triple-core Radeon from Asus


    Interesting. I’m not sure why they went with three instead of the obvious four, but this single card sports two R670 cores on the back and one on the front. That’s the core of ATi’s last generation of 3800s, so it’s at least as powerful as a 3870 X2, which is a viable retail product. They call it the Trinity, which is okay I guess, but has uncomfortable Matrix… Read More

  • Radeons now DisplayPort-certified, for what it's worth


    It’s not exactly world-shattering news, but it is nice to know what in the future I’m not going to be saddled with triple-DVI connections for my 2K monitor. Radeon’s 3000 series and their 780G integrated graphics chipset are the first to be fully DisplayPort-certified.The DisplayPort interface pushes twice as much information as DVI, so not only could that open doors for… Read More

  • Crunchdeals: Radeon X1950 for $99


    Check it out: I saw this X1950, which was one of the last and best DirectX 9 cards, featured on Tom’s Hardware’s Best Gaming Cards for the Money feature. They said they had it at Newegg for $89, but Newegg has removed that deal. Fortunately, a relatively reputable dealer has a similar deal. This is a steal of a price, you would normally be paying around $175 for one of these things. Read More

  • Where are the ATI GPUs in the new MacBook Pros?

    [photopress:nvidia.jpg,full,center] We’d heard that the new MacBook Pros that launched today were going to feature new ATI GPUs, but here we are, they’re launched, and they feature NVIDIA GeForce chipsets instead. Or that should be “still”, as that’s what the MacBook Pros have had standard all along. Video editors in particular want ATI, but Apple keeps going… Read More

  • ATI's Radeon HD 3800 series hits; HD 3870 X2 slays NVIDIA 8800 Ultra


    Looks like Radeons are competitive again. For a whole year, ATI and their owner/partner AMD have lagged behind the industry leaders NVIDIA and Intel in GPU and CPU performance. Well, it looks like ATI has finally managed to come out on top (again), although it’s entirely possible that their competitors will drop something hot in the next few weeks as well. The 3800 series is their… Read More

  • ATI's HD 3400: DirectX 10.1 and hardware HD playback for $50


    Just don’t try to play any games with it. I thought this was worth mentioning since people have complained of the cost of DX10 cards. Well, now you can get one for 50 clams. Of course, for that amount of cash you’re probably getting 64 megs of RAM (they don’t specify), which is almost enough to run Daikatana. But if you’ve got it set up right, you’ll be… Read More

  • ATI's new Radeon cards leaked; Gamers get silly

    Listen up, gamers. Normally this is Devin’s territory, but seeing as he’s still in the clink following a disastrous run in with Johnny Law after a few too many glasses of PowerNog™, it falls on my to cover this today. Also, my German isn’t so hot, so I’m trying to translate this with Google and getting nowhere. But here’s the gist of it: new Radeons are coming… Read More

  • AMD 'FireStream' GPU chipset rocks the float

    AMD’s newly-announced FireStream technology was announced earlier today and is being touted as the first of its kind to contain a double-precision floating point. The technology is based on ATI’s Radeon graphics card line and the new chips will cost $2000 a pop. The floating point, as you’ll remember from gradeschool, “is a numerical-representation system in which a… Read More

  • High-Def GPU Showdown: nVidia or ATI/AMD?

    Now that GPU manufacturers are touting their ability to tackle high-def content, it’s a good idea to investigate exactly which GPUs you should spend your money on. The two main camps, nVidia and ATI/AMD, both have several GPUs on the market, at several different price points, so choosing one is quite a hassle. Thankfully, AnandTech put several GPUs to the test, seeing how they fared… Read More

  • ATI Shipping Radeon HD 2400 and 2600 GPUs

    PC Gamers will always find a way to justify buying the latest, greatest card on the market. ATI and nVidia know this, which is why they keep releasing cards on a weekly basis. ATI’s latest offerings include the Radeon 2400 HD and 2600 HD. Both cards will be available at fine retailers online and off. Both GPUs feature AMD’s Unified Video Decoder technology, which lessens the load… Read More

  • Four-card ATI Crossfire Array Liquid Cooled In Taipei


    Lots of reference designs coming out of Taipei this week at Computex. Adding to that list is CoolIT Systems‘ factory-sealed, maintenance-free liquid-cooling system for AMD’s ATI Crossfire (no, not that Crossfire) configuration for the new high-performance Radeon HD 2900 XT graphic card. The assembly uses “micro-channel technology in a closed loop liquid-cooling… Read More

  • Free Steam Games For ATI Card Holders

    Nothing beats free stuff. Whether it’s a free ice cream cone or a free iPod, both are just so, so sweet. Those of you who still shell out $1000 a year to upgrade your PC for games will be happy to know that Valve and ATI have struck a bit of a deal that runs in your favor. Owners of ATI RadeonT graphics cards will be able to download free games from Valve’s Steam service. So you have… Read More

  • ATI's New Mac-Specific Radeon Breathes Fire, Kills Dragons, Has CrossFire

    This is the Radeon X2800XT with CrossFire technology. It’s a mammoth of a video card. And if rumors hold true, it’ll hit the streets this April at NAB in Las Vegas. But you won’t be able to buy this guy off the shelf just then. No, the X2800XT with CrossFire will be incorporated into the updated MacPros we’ve been hearing about. And that’s an exclusive deal… Read More

  • AMD In Your Apple Power Mac G5 Quad…Sort Of


    So, AMD’s ownership of ATI now means that anywhere you once put the graphics chip-maker’s products, you’ll now be putting in AMD. In this case, it’s the newly available ATI Radeon X1900 G5 Mac Edition. The card is your best option for delivering high-end 3D graphics performance to an older Power Mac desktop with a x16 PCI Express slot. For $349, you get 36 pixel… Read More

  • Death of a Dongle: ATI's Radeon X1950 Pro

    The Radeon X1950 Pro from ATI that launched today is the company’s $199 competition against Nvidia’s GeForce 7900 GS. Based on a new graphics chip — the R570 — it’s the first of ATI’s cards to not need an external dongle to connect two cards in a dual-GPU CrossFire configuration. The old, thick-cabled dongle was not only a pain to connect, but was far… Read More

  • Gaming Graphics On A Budget

    Usually, getting through a graphics card review on Tom’s Hardware leads to skipping through the nauseating number of benchmarks it does and going straight to the conclusion to see if the card is worth the cash. Well for the short-attention-spanned gamers out there, Tom’s went all budgety with the current crop of cards from ATI and Nvidia, with its top choices by price point and… Read More

  • ATI Radeon Xpress 1250 Integrated Intel Graphics Chipset For Laptops

    Gamers and performance enthusiasts balk at the mere mention of “integrated graphics”, and rightfully so. But the Radeon Xpress 1250 is “Vista Ready” and will handle Vista’s Aero Glass GUI features with no problem, meaning it should be powerful enough to run your games at least at a playable framerate. Radeon Xpress 1250 is the first Intel-based chipset to… Read More

  • ATI Radeon X1950 XTX Looms

    On September 14, ATI will set loose its new flagship card. The Radeon X1950 XTX can purportedly outperform its nearest competitor, the GeForce 7950 GX2, in “extreme high definition” resolutions using only half the processors. It can be run individually, or paired with another x1950 XTX in Crossfire mode to deliver even more performance. From what I gather, the X1950 XTX uses… Read More
