The search returned something like, “Original ATI retail boxes”. Support in this table refers to the most current version. Damn just realized the gigabyte 64mb card is a pro. Later, driver updates helped to further close the performance gap between the and the Ti, while the was also significantly less expensive and offered additional multimedia features such as dual-monitor support. Each pipeline can now address a total of 6 texture layers per pass. The texture filtering capabilities of R are also improved over its predecessor.

Radeon 8500 64mb or Radeon 8500LE 128mb?

I wonder how many other people were fooled by that. The refurbished 64mb one would be from Newegg.

R’s 3D hardware consists of 4 pixel pipelineseach with 2 texture sampling units. For example, ATI was detecting the executable “Quake3.

The “texcrd” instruction moves the texture coordinate values of a texture 88500le the destination register, while the “texld” instruction will load the texture at the coordinates specified in the source register to the destination register. The chip achieves this by using a method known as ‘loop-back’.

ATI Announces Radeon 8500LE Chip

Well checked it out, and bid. I’m upgrading from a voodoo3 that i’ve had for around five years. More about radeon le.

At launch, the card’s performance was below expectations and it had numerous software flaws that caused problems with games. BTW, the bids are down radron now Lonemagi Mar 12,6: However, even with the Detonator4 drivers, the Radeon was able to outperform the GeForce 3 which the was intended to compete against and in some circumstances its faster revision, the Ti, the higher clocked derivative Nvidia had rolled out in response to the R project.


Current technologies and software. The Crucial Radeon LE comes with a lifetime warranty, and speaking from personal experience, they’ve always shown that they’re a first class business that does look after its customers. You won’t have a problem clocking the GPU back up to original speed, but they put slower memory 5ns memory so you might have a problem getting the memory clock stable above Mhz Mhz DAC. I don’t care about dual monitor support.

To dampen excitement forcompetitor nVidia released their Detonator4 driver package on the same day as most web sites previewed the Radeon Their goal is not to produce the most expensive and most “cutting edge” card on the market, but rather to offer one with good performance for upgrade type situations, and at a very low price point.

It is the basis for a variety of other succeeding products. This page was last edited on 8 Mayat However, it is still highly angle-dependent and the driver sometimes forces bilinear filtering for speed. The phase instruction allows a shader program to operate on two separate “phases” 2 passes through the hardwareeffectively doubling the maximum number of texture addressing and arithmetic instructions, and potentially allowing the number of passes required for an effect to be reduced.

This auction even used a graph that was claimed to be from tomshardware, but it does point out in the details that it runs mhz, but does not mention the LE part. Radeon 64mb or Radeon LE mb The title says it all. HDCP is mandatory for the output of certain audio formats, placing additional constraints on the multimedia setup.

Upon closer inspection of the Crucial Radeon LE we noticed that it was of course using Micron memory, and 6ns Micron memory at that. Talon06 Sep 28,5: Radeon LE on a P system, a good buy? Radeon ‘s biggest disappointment was its early driver releases.

See article on R’s pixel shaders.

Which do you suggest and why? R has advanced memory bandwidth saving and overdraw reduction hardware called HyperZ II that consists of occlusion culling hierarchical Zfast z-buffer clear, and z-buffer compression. Talon06 Sep 28, Ask a new question. About Us Employment Privacy Policy. In earlyATI launched the Radeon LE re-released later as the Radeon in European identical chip with a lower clock speed and slower memory.
