The sound level of the fan at the end of the MP3 is the loudest it ever got for us during our testing, but once again we were testing in an open air environment and not in a closed potentially quite warm case. If owning a single slot solution is a deciding factor, the R will fulfill that niche. Sign up now Username Password Remember Me. Some people didn’t expect it to happen this season, and it is a little late in the year. ShadowFlare New Member Jan 15, Can i flash with flashrom -p -f 0 name.

The R is fabbed on the nm process rather than the nm low-k process. This ayi was last edited on 31 Julyat The stock thermal solution ATI provides is quite different from what we’ve seen in the past, and quite resembles the leaf-blower type systems we’ve seen attached to older GeForce FX based products.

We’ll have to wait and see what happens this spring before we can really see if the industry is going to start relaxing the product cycle a little, or if this last round was just a little more intense for both ATI and NVIDIA.

Please check out our forum guidelines for info related to our community. Just so you get an idea of what it sounds like, we’ve provided an mp3 of our X XT PE testbed starting up. Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing If owning a single slot solution is a deciding factor, the R will fulfill that niche.


To be completely fair, we haven’t tested it in oven-like weather or at a constant high overclock. Unfortunately, we couldn’t get ATI to go into any more detail on exactly what “substrate enhancements” were made, but shorter trace lengths translates to the possibility of higher stable memory clock speeds for ATI cards using the enhanced R chip.

As all parties involved have had some practice with this part for a while, we would have been happier if ATI had gotten on the s800/x850 and had product on shelves today, if they do ship next week, they won’t be in bad shape. It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays.

Oh, sure, the streets aren’t exactly awash in GeForce Ultras, but sti Platinum Edition has been brutally scarce. This change, like all the others to the R, is intended to bring higher clock speeds with less fuss, so that supply of Rbased cards might actually be able to keep up with demand. This magical fact is made possible through the wonders of x8000/x850 enhancements.

A single slot and no power connector are the telling characteristics of ATI’s 0. The R’s supporting cast gets similar tweaks. As of this posting, the current version is 2. Current technologies and software. If I made a backup with atitool and check with same bios before flashing the result are identical file!! If the fan has to spin all radon way up, you may get the feeling you’ve got a Civic with an aftermarket exhaust racing around in your box.

ATI isn’t able to push the R chips at clock speeds that rival the R, but this matches well with cooler running, lower clocked 16 and 12 pixel pipe solutions which is exactly what ATI is offering with R based cards. At boot time, that blower cranked up briefly to full speed, aurally evoking an Oreck XL.


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. Can i flash with flashrom -p -f 0 name. That’ll make the other gpu companies scramble.

Steam names the best-selling games of Joined Apr 11, Messages 2, 0. Rbased Radeon X cards will get a much smaller cooler. The R and R aren’t revolutionary by any means, but ATI has brought some notable changes to each of them. I have included my original bios and the bios I tried with Hex. Here’s a brief overview radoen how ATI will be using these new chips in actual products.

ATI says the R should use as little as half the power and produce half the heat of the R in “2D” desktop use. ShadowFlare New Member Jan 17, Instructions for that may be found elsewhere on this site.
