RADEON 8500 built by ATI - FrostyTech.com RADEON 8500 built by ATI
Tue Apr 02, 2002 | 11:36A| PermaLink
Just like Radeon Graphics was a more complete graphics accelerator than GeForce 2 GTS, R200, built into Radeon 8500, is superior over GeForce 3. The first Radeon had a more advanced memory management - Hyper Z - with its 3 algorithm packages. That technique successfully preserved the memory bandwidth in higher screen resolutions. It had a better implemented T&L engine that had Clipping method added. Also, there were functions like Pixel Tapestry and Keyframe Interpolation, discussed in our first Radeon test. Radeon 8500 did not advance over the previous Radeon as much as GeForce 3 did over its predecessors - however strange this might sound. ATI copies from more successful players and it's not surprising at all. Anyway, economy has its laws, which are never wrong. The news we received in a few last weeks may alter the situation on the market of graphic cards. ATI wins over Hercules Company that will manufacture exclusive models for European market (All In Wonder model above all) while Gigabyte became exclusive partner with "firm" contract. This means that these two companies would be the first to have "powered by ATI" cards, the best chip series ((those that can work on the highest frequencies) and the best driver support. It may even happen that companies start developing drivers - independently or in cooperation with ATI. Anyway, their improvement must occur.
