Converse with the creator of ATI's R580
Subject: Cases and Cooling | January 26, 2006 - 12:13 PM | Jeremy Hellstrom
Beyond3D has a conversation with Eric Demers and Richard Huddy from ATI. If you are curious about the power behind the X1900, these guys have a lot of answers.
"In our recent R580: ATI Radeon X1900 XTX and Crossfire article we took a look at the architecture
of this new ATI chip and the performance it brings with its interesting configuration. With R580
scaling up the number of pixel shader processors fairly drastically, and yet not similarly scaling
either the number of texture inputs or ROP outputs, some may still have the impression that R580
is a fairly imbalanced part.
In an effort to dig further into ATI's thinking behind the design of R580 and gain a greater
understanding of the decisions that have lead to this process we decided to put some questions to
them. In reply we have answers from Eric Demers, from ATI's Desktop Graphics Engineering group, as
well as a few comments from Richard Huddy, who brings in the perspective from their ISV relations
group, which has a front line role to play with developers and who plays an important part in
shaping future hardware."
