ATI Launches and Ships New RadeonÂ® X1900 Graphics Processor For Advanced Multimedia and Gaming
RadeonÂ® X1900, All-In-WonderÂ® X1900 and RadeonÂ® X1900 CrossFire™ products will engage and entertain customers while they breakthrough performance and quality barriers
MARKHAM, ON— January 24, 2006 — Gamers and multimedia enthusiasts alike will be delighted by the launch and immediate availability of the RadeonÂ® X1900 graphics processor from ATI (TSX: ATY, NASDAQ: ATYT). With the most advanced and complete set of features, PCI ExpressÂ® add-in-cards based on the Radeon X1900 GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) will, without question, be the cards of choice for gamers looking for the best performance and for multimedia enthusiasts looking for a high-performance, high-quality digital media experience.
The RadeonÂ® X1900 XT and RadeonÂ® X1900 XTX are must-have cards for gamers.
They deliver the best performance, with three times the shader performance than the previous generation. The parallel architecture -- with 48 pixel shader processors -- generates rich, vibrant scenes, bringing games to life. Combined with the cards' high clock frequencies, the architecture is capable of more than half a TeraFLOP of shader computations. In real-life gaming that can mean games run up to 60 percent faster on the Radeon X1900 XTX than the nearest competing product.
But the architecture isn't just about brute force performance, it also delivers the industry's best image quality including the ability to apply advanced features such as antialiasing and high dynamic range lighting simultaneously — capabilities exclusive to ATI. The Radeon X1900 also features ATI's Avivo™ technologies which ensure optimal image quality, connectivity and HD video capabilities.
