Because DirectX Texture Compression DXTC was block-based and not designed for a normal map’s different data properties, a new compression method was needed to prevent loss of detail and other artifacting.
Coined the “quad dispatch system”, the screen is tiled and work is spread out evenly among the separate “quads” to optimize their throughput.
ATi Radeon R400 Series
The new high-end R4x0-generation arrived with the X series, equipped with various core tweaks for slightly higher performance than the “R”-based X series. A 2X software setting became perceptively equivalent to 4X.
Strangely, the X mainstream card RV had 6 vertex shaders while only being equipped with 2 quads. Com, December 1,retrieved January 17, Essentially, the X Pro is built on semi-defective R cores. Com forum, November 11, With R’s and RV’s 6 vertex shaders combined with higher clock speeds than the previous generation, ATI was able to more than double the geometry processing capability of XT.
Com, October 20, Apparently by reducing tile sizes, ATI was able to optimize for different triangle sizes.

ATI would go on produce a card in the X series to compete instead. The “R”-based X line was available in 3 forms: Views Read Edit View history. RV used a layout consisting of 8 pixel pipelines connected to 4 ROPs similar to GeForce 6 while maintaining the 6 vertex shaders of X Software making heavy use of normal mapping could gain a significant speed boost from the savings in fillrate and bandwidth by using 3Dc.
This new revision to PS2. High sales for this card were due to its relatively high performance coupled with a cost only slightly higher than the X GT.
Used first on the Radeon X, the R r4880 produced on a 0. Archived from the original on Retrieved from ” https: A new pixel shader version PS2.
If the framerate could not be maintained, the driver will disable Temporal AA. An X XT was planned for production, and reviewed by various hardware web sites, but was never released.

Another notable addition to the core was a new kind of normal map compression, dubbed ” 3Dc “. However, in games which this performance level could be maintained, Temporal AA was a nice addition to ATI’s excellent anti-aliasing options. The R design was a 4 “quad” arrangement 4 pipelines per quad. The card more than surpassed the GT with performance similar to that of the GeForce 6 Similar to how texture compression had been part of the Direct3D specification for years and was used for compressing regular textures, normal map compression compacted this new type of surface detail layer.
Note, ATI’s “Temporal AA” was actually a temporal dithering filter for spatial AA, not de facto temporal anti-aliasing which must involve a controlled blending of the temporal subsamples from consecutive screens. Most of the rest of the GPU was extremely similar to R The earliest Radeon X series cards were based on the R core.
R basically takes a “wider is better” approach to the previous architecture, with some small tweaks thrown in to enhance it in various ways. This is how the Rseries chips performed their tasks as well, but R refined this by allowing programmable tile sizes g480 order to control work flow on a finer level of granularity.
