The demo was a real-time implementation of noted 3D graphics researcher Paul Debevec 's paper on the topic of high dynamic range rendering. This trade-off in precision offered the best combination of transistor usage and image quality for the manufacturing process at the time.

It did cause a usually visibly imperceptible loss of quality when doing heavy blending. The R was the first board to truly take advantage of a bit memory bus.
Matrox had released their Parhelia several months earlier, but AMD Mobility Radeon 9600 Graphics board did not show great gains with its bit bus. ATI, however, had not only doubled their bus to bit, but also integrated an advanced crossbar memory controller, somewhat similar to NVIDIA 's memory technology.

Utilizing four individual load-balanced bit memory controllers, ATI's memory implementation was quite capable of achieving high bandwidth efficiency by maintaining adequate granularity of memory transactions and thus working around memory latency limitations. The demands of the 8x1 architecture required more bandwidth than the bit bus designs of the previous generation due to having double the texture AMD Mobility Radeon 9600 Graphics pixel fillrate. Radeon introduced ATI's multi-sample gamma-corrected anti-aliasing scheme.
Multi-sampling offered vastly superior performance over the supersampling method on older Radeons, and superior AMD Mobility Radeon 9600 Graphics quality compared to NVIDIA's offerings at the time. Anti-aliasing was, for the first time, a fully usable option even in the newest and most demanding titles of the day. The R also offered advanced anisotropic filtering which incurred a much smaller performance hit than the anisotropic solution of the GeForce4 and other competitors' cards, while offering significantly improved quality over Radeon 's anisotropic filtering implementation which was highly angle dependent.
At the time, this was quite astonishing, and resulted in the widespread acceptance of AA and AF as critical, truly usable features. The would be the second of ATI's chips after the to be shipped to third-party manufacturers instead of ATI producing all of its AMD Mobility Radeon 9600 Graphics cards, though ATI would still produce cards off of its highest-end chips. This freed up engineering resources that were channeled towards driver improvementsand the performed phenomenally well at launch because of this.
R would become one of the GPUs with the longest useful lifetime in history, allowing playable performance in new games at least 3 years after its launch. Meanwhile, the also became popular because it could in some cases be modified into the much more powerful ATI only intended for the series to be a temporary solution to fill the gap for the Christmas season, prior to the release of the Since all of the R chips were based on the same physical die, ATI's margins on products were low. Radeon was one of the shortest-lived product of ATI, later replaced by the Radeon series.
The logo and box package of the was resurrected in to market the unrelated and slower Radeon which is a derivative of the Refreshed[ edit ] In earlythe cards were replaced by the AMD Mobility Radeon 9600 Graphics, R These were Rs with higher clock speeds, and improvements to the shader units and memory controller which enhanced anti-aliasing performance. They were designed to maintain a performance lead over the recently launched GeForce FX Ultra, which it managed to do without difficulty.
The still held its own against the revised FXprimarily and significantly in tasks involving heavy SM2. Another selling point for the was that it was still a single-slot card, compared to the dual-slot requirements of the FX and FX Alienware were kind enough to send two swappable cores with the sample: Evaluating mobile graphics parts is slightly more AMD Mobility Radeon 9600 Graphics than evaluating desktop hardware, due to imposed form factor limitations.

For instance, taking into account power saving schemes available in each driver is prudent, but something never exposed or tested in a desktop accelerator. Driver issues also conspire to make testing mobile graphics a frustrating experience. More often than not you're reduced to downloading desktop drivers, running a tool that adds PCI ID strings AMD Mobility Radeon 9600 Graphics the driver. But it's common, when using that method of driver creation, that the resulting driver drops its power saving module, leaving you unable to test its effects.
Finally, with certain driver versions come certain application specific optimisations for certain benchmarks, making benchmarking them objectively very difficult. Image quality is the recipient, driver optimisations often lowering quality on a given benchmark for faster scores. ATI Mobility Radeon The predecessor version of the ATI Radeon Mobility differs by its low clock speed and the worse Z-compression (was improved with ).
In the beginning it was the fastest graphic card, which was available for notebooks, but nowadays it is part of the lower performance segment. No information is available for this page.
