While this differed from the older chips using 2 or 3 for the original Radeon texture units per pipeline, this did not mean R could not perform multi-texturing as efficiently as older chips.

Its texture units could perform a new loopback operation which allowed them to sample up to 16 textures per geometry pass. The textures can be any combination of one, two, or AMD Mobility Radeon 9800 dimensions with bilinearAMD Mobility Radeon 9800or anisotropic filtering. This was part of the new DirectX 9 specification, along with more flexible floating-point-based Shader Model 2. Equipped with 4 vertex shader units, R possessed over twice the geometry processing capability of the preceding Radeon and the GeForce4 Tiin addition to the greater feature-set offered compared to DirectX 8 shaders.


ATI demonstrated part of what was capable with pixel shader PS2. The demo was a real-time implementation of noted 3D graphics researcher Paul Debevec 's paper on the topic of high dynamic range rendering. DirectX 9. This trade-off in precision offered the best combination of transistor usage and AMD Mobility Radeon 9800 quality for the manufacturing process at the time.

It did cause a usually visibly imperceptible loss of quality when doing heavy blending. Matrox had released their Parhelia several months earlier, but this board did not show great gains with its bit bus. ATI, however, had not only doubled their bus to bit, but also integrated an advanced crossbar memory controller, somewhat similar to NVIDIA 's memory technology. Utilizing four individual load-balanced bit memory controllers, ATI's memory implementation was quite capable of achieving high bandwidth efficiency AMD Mobility Radeon 9800 maintaining adequate granularity of memory transactions and thus working around memory latency limitations.


The demands of the 8x1 architecture required more bandwidth than the bit bus designs of the previous generation due to AMD Mobility Radeon 9800 double the texture and pixel fillrate. Radeon introduced ATI's multi-sample gamma-corrected anti-aliasing scheme. Multi-sampling offered vastly superior performance over the supersampling method on older Radeons, and superior image quality compared to NVIDIA's offerings at the time.

Anti-aliasing was, for AMD Mobility Radeon 9800 first time, a fully usable option even in the newest and most demanding titles of the day. The R also offered advanced anisotropic filtering which incurred a much smaller performance hit than the anisotropic solution of the GeForce4 and other competitors' cards, while offering significantly improved quality over Radeon 's anisotropic filtering implementation which was highly angle dependent. At the time, this was quite special, and resulted in the widespread acceptance of AA and AF AMD Mobility Radeon 9800 truly usable features.

The would be the second of ATI's chips after the to be shipped to third-party manufacturers instead of AMD Mobility Radeon 9800 producing all of its graphics cards, though ATI would still produce cards off of its highest-end chips. This freed up engineering resources that were channeled towards driver improvementsand the performed phenomenally well at launch because of this.

R would become one of the GPUs with the longest useful lifetime in history, allowing playable performance in new games at least 3 years after its launch. Meanwhile, the also became popular because it could in some cases be modified into the much more powerful ATI only intended for the series to be a temporary solution to fill the gap for the Christmas season, prior to the release of the Since all of the R chips were based on the same AMD Mobility Radeon 9800 die, ATI's AMD Mobility Radeon 9800 on products were low. Radeon was one of the shortest-lived product of ATI, later replaced by the Radeon series. The logo and box package of the was resurrected in to market the unrelated and slower Radeon which is a derivative of the Refreshed[ edit ] In earlythe cards were replaced by the or, R These were Rs with higher clock speeds, and improvements to the shader units and memory controller which enhanced anti-aliasing performance.
