to push up graphics performance to new levels, Sapphire Technology has just
introduced its latest new series of graphics accelerators based on an exciting
new architecture delivering the most sophisticated and powerful graphics
processing solutions yet.
on a completely new architecture, the new X1000 series is built on the latest
90nm chip technology and has been designed to deliver efficiency, high
performance in Shader Model 3.0, enhanced image quality and to provide
scalability across a range of price performance options.
top of the range RADEON X1800 family now delivers the highest graphics
performance in the industry, with its new architecture featuring 16 pixel shader
processors and a new ring-bus based 512-bit memory controller delivering true
Direct X 9 Shader Model 3.0 compatibility for the first time. Sophisticated
large scale multi-threading is supported with hundreds of simultaneous threads
across multiple cores – and the ability to handle small thread sizes and
multiple shader instructions per thread maximizes processor efficiency. The huge
dynamic range of this new processor enables a new generation of ultra realistic
effects to be realized such as dynamic soft shadows and the physical simulation
of fluids like rain or water.
quality is unrivalled, with High Dynamic Range rendering (HDR) combined with up
to 12x Anti-Aliasing (AA), blending capability and a new higher quality
anisotropic filtering (AF). Parallax occlusion mapping is a new technique based
on ray tracing techniques to allow three dimensional detail to interact on
surfaces – details can hide or cast shadows on to each other in real time
thanks to the power of the ultra threading capability. The architecture also
supports AvivoTM delivering vibrant high fidelity images and video
playback to the latest High definition video standards.
will introduce several models in this exciting new family, offering a choice of
graphics engine and memory speeds. Top of the range will be the X1800XT and XL
models. Based on the same architecture, but offering slightly lower performance
levels with more affordable pricing will be the Sapphire RADEON X1600 series,
and delivering unbeatable performance for really competitive pricing will be the
RADEON X1300 series. There will also be versions to support dual GPU operation
in CrossFire systems. All models will
ship with TRIXX – Sapphire’s
exclusive safe overclocking utility for enhanced performance.
versions of these new Sapphire graphics accelerators will ship with Sapphire Select, the exciting new way to deliver a choice of games
to the end user. Each card is bundled with a DVD containing a selection of top
applications and games from several leading software houses. The end customer
can play each of the games for a one hour trial before choosing which titles he
or she wants to keep and using the activation codes for those titles.
Sapphire’s RADEON X1000 series now
family delivers the best graphics and video
performance in the industry. For more details please visit www.sapphiretech.com
