Radeon™ X1900 Series — ATI’s Fastest Graphics Processor
Is your rig ready for the onslaught of next generation games? It will be with the Radeon™ X1900—ATI’s fastest consumer graphics processor.
Designed from the ground up to deliver maximum graphical detail at the best possible frame rates, the Radeon X1900’s state-of-the-art architecture includes an ultra-threaded engine for unparalleled shader performance. In addition, it is CrossFire™ ready, allowing your greatest multi-GPU fantasies to come true.
The Radeon X1900 ups the ante with Avivo™ video and display technology delivering movies, games, and photos in high-definition format with stunning color and realism.
ATI's Fastest Consumer Graphics Processing Unit (GPU)
The Radeon X1900 conquers the competition with brute force and massive parallelism, including an ultra-threaded engine, high speed memory support, and 90 nanometer technology.
- New ultra-threaded engine cranks up performance for a significant
improvement over our previous generation GPU
The Radeon X1900’s ultra-threaded engine has 48 individual pixel shader processors and supports incredibly fast memory clock speeds.
- Ultra-efficient memory controller squeezes out every last drop
of visual detail from your games
Efficient use of memory permits rapid transmission of graphics data. The Radeon X1900’s new ring-bus memory controller provides optimal memory usage for enhanced performance.
- 90 nanometer technology = maximum performance
Industry-leading 90 nanometer technology has allowed our engineers to pack more features into the graphics chip, resulting in faster frame rates and incredible performance improvements.
Advanced Lighting Contours and Color Detail
The Radeon X1900 promises the world’s fastest shader performance1 in Shader Model 3.0 applications. ATI allows you to experience simultaneous HDR and advanced anti-aliasing effects for incredible enhancements to lighting contour and colour details, delivering the ultimate in visually immersive 3D gaming.
- Get your box geared up for the future
of games with blazing fast shader performance and watch your characters
sweat with Shader Model 3.0
Shaders create the surface properties of 3D objects. The Radeon X1900 has 48 shader processors that work in parallel with Shader Model 3.0 to render complex object surfaces—such as glistening sweat on a character’s skin—with 128-bit floating point precision.
- Take the edge off of jagged wires and strands
of hair with advanced adaptive anti-aliasing, and experience realistic
lighting through HDR technology
The Radeon™ X1K family are the only graphics boards on the market to combine Full Screen Antialiasing (FSAA)—the most advanced anti-aliasing technique in the world—with high dynamic range (HDR) technology. HDR mimics the function of the human eye by allowing for a broader range of colors within a scene. This allows for more color, giving a wider spectrum of lighting effects and providing realistic shadows around buildings or landscape. This added color detail and lighting effect gives you a more true-to-life gaming experience with realistic settings and sequences.
- Unite the power of two graphics cards to accelerate
your games even further with CrossFire, our acclaimed multi-GPU solution
Radeon X1900 series allows you to get incredible gaming performance by adding a Radeon X1900 Crossfire Edition graphics card for ultra fast performance that works with all games, all the time.
There’s more to PC graphics than games, and Avivo — video and display perfection — makes sure you experience it all. Avivo promises a high definition amphitheatre visual experience, delivering sharper photos, smoother video, true-to-life image representation, and universal display connectivity.
- High-definition images come to life with remarkable clarity and over
1 billion colors
Avivo’s 10-bit-per-color display engine renders more than one billion colors, resulting in images that are clean, sharp, and incredibly realistic.
- Avivo’s flexible connectivity allows you to
create your ideal display set-up
In addition to supporting multiple monitor environments and accommodating virtually any type of display, Avivo can allow your PC to become the core of your home theater by leveraging ATI’s Xillion and Theater technologies, which are found inside many of today’s best digital TVs.
- Avivo uses the same technologies present in digital TVs to deliver
HD image quality for a high-end home theatre experience
Avivo uses proprietary video scaling technology to display crystal clear images on high resolution displays. Movies and images sent to your display will be hardware accelerated for superb, stutter-free viewing.
