Eine Woche nach der Präsentation der R300 aka Radeon 9700 kündigte heute ATI die entsprechende Professional-Version der Fire GL-Serie an.

Die Fire GL X1 soll mit ihrer von 256MB 256bit DDR-Memory unterstützten 128bit VPU im Workstation-Bereich neue Maßstäbe setzen.

Das komplette Press-release ist auf der 2. Seite zu lesen ...

ATI's new FIRE GL(tm) X1 primed to power DCC and CAD workstations into new
era of content creation


World's most advanced workstation graphics board with OpenGL®, DirectX® 9
and Linux in one graphics solution

MARKHAM, Ontario/ Munich, 24 July 2002 - ATI Technologies Inc. (TSX:ATY,
NASDAQ:ATYT) today introduced the FIRE GL(tm) X1 workstation graphics board,
based on the recently announced RADEON(tm) 9700 Visual Processing Unit
(VPU). ATI's FIRE GL X1, scheduled to be available in October 2002, is the
first in the world to deliver a fully programmable floating point
architecture in OpenGL® 2.0 and Microsoft® DirectX® 9, with double the
performance of any product currently on the market.

The FIRE GL X1 is also the first in the industry to offer eight parallel
rendering pipelines - providing twice the rendering power of any competing
product - giving digital content creators the ability to preview finished
scenes in real time, saving days of production time. In addition, the FIRE
GL X1 will offload complex data calculations from the CPU, therefore freeing
up horsepower to accelerate the production pipeline.

"The FIRE GL X1 represents a significant breakthrough in the workstation
market," said Rick Bergman, Senior Vice President, Marketing and General
Manager, Desktop, ATI Technologies Inc. "Its revolutionary architecture and
raw power will be the only choice for artists, developers and engineers who
want to create and refine digital content at unprecedented levels of
versatility and speed."


ATI's FIRE GL X1 128-bit full floating point pipeline architecture now makes
it possible to compile higher level shaders from leading digital content
creation (DCC) software such as
Aliaswavefront's Maya®, Discreet's 3ds max(tm), Side Effects Software's
Houdini(tm) and Softimage's XSI(tm) onto its graphics accelerator.

Feature Set

The fully programmable floating point architecture feature set of the FIRE
GL X1 includes:


* Ability to generate real time photo-realistic renderings;

* Unlimited color range beyond 16.7 million colors;

* True error-free and "loss less" multipass; and

* Fully programmable architecture.

Revolutionary new architecture coupled with extreme performance
The groundbreaking architecture of the FIRGE GL X1 is complemented by 256MB
DDR memory and a 256-bit memory interface that removes hardware performance
bottleneck and provides digital content creators and CAD engineers with
faster 3D graphics. The FIRE GL X1 also supports AGP 8X, providing a two-way
high-speed interface between the graphics subsystem and the workstation at a
speed of 2.0 GB per second.

Highest level of photo-realism
With SMARTSHADER(tm) 2.0 and fully programmable floating point precision,
the FIRE GL X1 is the first workstation graphics architecture to fully
support Microsoft DirectX 9 and OpenGL 2.0 in one single solution. The
implementation supports up to 16 textures per rendering pass with Pixel
Shaders 2.0 and vertex programs of up to 1,024 instructions with flow
control. This architecture enables digital content creators to create
complex visual effects and run leading DCC and CAD software programs in real
time without losing image quality.

The FIRE GL X1 also features dual integrated display controllers with dual
monitor support, and quad buffered stereo graphics support that enables
stereographic display.
