Here’s a brief overview of how ATI will be using these new chips in actual products. Rbased Radeon X cards will get a much smaller cooler. Steam names the best-selling games of ATI says the R should use as little as half the power and produce half the heat of the R in “2D” desktop use.
The R will be aimed at the very top of the performance ranks. In fact, we’ve benchmarked it against nearly every card we could find.

The R and R aren’t revolutionary by any means, but ATI has brought some notable changes to each of them. Like the R and R, the R has 16 pixel pipelines and six vertex shader engines. Still, the other shoe has dropped. ATI is aiming to correct these availability problems and bring a little more performance to the X series with a pair of new graphics chips, code-named R and D850 The R’s supporting cast gets similar tweaks. However, not all has been roses.

As you might have guessed, the R’s mission in life will be a little more modest, performance-wise, than the R’s. Like the R, the R is manufactured by TSMC on its low-k nm fab process, but the R and its supporting cast have been tweaked and tuned to reach higher clock speeds more easily and reliably.
The first products based on these chips will be the Radeon X XT and X XT Platinum Edition, and we’ve had our grubby little hands on one of these cards long enough to benchmark it. Once those few seconds passed, though, the blower never did get back up to that speed again, no matter what I did with the card. This process, combined with lower clock speeds, should allow Rbased cards to thrive with a relatively minimalist single-slot cooler.
In intense 3D gaming and benchmarking sessions, even with relatively warm ambient temperatures, the X XT PE was generally quieter than a GeForce Ultra, which isn’t bad company to keep.

Instead of dynamic clock gating and a big-ass fan, though, the R gets a bit of a die shrink courtesy of TSMC’s nm fab process. Dell returns to the stock market after six years.

The R, in turn, traces its roots to the R design used on the original Radeon Both of the Radeon X cards will use a single-slot cooler and require no external power plug at least on PCI Express versions.
The cards’ 256mh is decent, and ATI’s market share numbers are up. At boot time, that blower cranked up briefly to full speed, aurally evoking an Oreck XL.
