AMD Promises "DirectX 10+" Graphics Chips Next Year.
by Anton Shilov

[ 07/26/2007 | 11:21 PM ]


Advanced Micro Devices said on Thursday that even though its ATI
Radeon HD 2000-series graphics chips family has experienced massive
delays, the company is still positioned to deliver competitive
graphics solutions to the market place. ATI, graphics product group of
AMD, will concentrate on releasing "DirectX 10+" graphics chips next
year as well as on improving the multi-GPU technology.


"In the enthusiast segment you can't sit still. So, we will refresh
Spider [AMD's 2007 enthusiast platform - Editor] and will certainly
bring quad-cores on 45nm in 2008, we will have a new enthusiast
chipset and certainly we will have a new high-end GPU family as well
in 2008 on the Leo platform," said Rick Bergman, senior vice president
and general manager of graphics product group, at AMD's Technology
Analyst Day.

Unfortunately, not a lot of information is known about AMD's code-
named R700 graphics product family. What was released was that the new
graphics cores will support DirectX 10+ capabilities, PCI Express 2.0
interconnection, ATI Avivo HD video engine, universal video decoding
(UVD), DisplayPort connector as well as ATI CrossFire multi-GPU
technology.

The new family of products will be produced using 55nm process
technology, which is available already at Taiwan Semiconductor
Manufacturing Company (TSMC). Therefore, if AMD executes itself
flawlessly and does not tie together releases of new 45nm central
processing units and 55nm graphics processing units, the new R700
family of chips may emerge already in the first half of 2008,
something, which ATI needs crucially, as the latest two families - ATI
Radeon X1000 and ATI Radeon HD 2000 - from the company emerged on the
market considerably later than competing solutions from Nvidia Corp.

Default AMD Talks ATI Radeon 3000-Series / R700

first half of 2008 is far too late. AMD / ATI needs to get R700 /
Radeon 3000 series out sometime during Q4 2007 to meet Nvidia's
G92. At least the flagship R700 product out in time for Christmas,
I the lowerend parts during Q1 2008. Dunno if that's technically
possible for AMD / ATI to do or not, but I'm thinking it's POSSIBLE
given that R600 was *meant* to arrive summer or fall 2006. it suffered
severe delays. If R700 is on time, I'd think it *would* be a late
2007 product.

Default AMD Talks ATI Radeon 3000-Series / R700

I love both ATI and nVidia, but I do have a little favortism towards
underdogs, such as ATI. With ATI recent recent the past years, I've
pretty given up except for their AIW cards. My cards has been nvidia
recently, and it's not even because I prefer them. It's because they
come out first, and after waiting for a month to see the competition
to be sure I got the better card, no show from ATI and I ended up just
getting a nvidia via "forfeit".

Yes yes I could wait for ATI, but I don't love them THAT much nor do I
call myself a fanboy of either. If they actually came out around the
same timeframe, atleast I could have research, read reviews, read
about offerings, then pick the better of the 2 card that works better
for me.

nvidia has just been on a roll when it comes to delivering great cards
on time and before their competition. At this rate my next
performance would likely be another nvidia, unless ATI can actually
release one for me to compare against. If I were upgrading in Q1
2008, and G92 is the only tech out, that would be sad.

Yes I know it's AMD now, but it's still ATI in my head.

3Dfx Voodoo technology is all wrapped up in Nvidia. starting with the
NV3x / GeForce FX family. but more importantly, the entire NV4x /
GeForce 6 and G7x / GeForce 7 families (including the PlayStation3
GPU) are based in large part on technology 3Dfx developed for the
never-released 'Rampage' family of graphics, combined with Nvidia's
own technology. Nvidia and 3Dfx were/are only as good as the
technology that made them good: and that is, former Silicon Graphics
Inc / SGI tech and engineers.


I want Lockheed Martin Real3D back. they never produced a good
consumer graphics chip/card (the i740 chip and Starfighter cards
sucked) but they had absolutely outstanding 3D chipsets for SEGA
arcade games and military simulators. they offered $100,000 SGI
performance for $5000-$6000. (the Real3D-Pro 1000 GPUs in SEGA's
MODEL3 board that powered games like Virtua Fighter 3, Scud Race, Sega
Rally 2, Daytona USA 2, etc) . in the 1990s that was still too much
for the consumer. Real3D died but ATI swallowed what they could get
ahold of, after they bought ArtX (a group of very very smart former
SGI engineers). so those former SGI/ArtX and Real3D engineers are
now at AMD.
