Sapphire Radeon X800 Product Details

Sapphire Radeon X800
Built upon features that today's game developers dreamed about, you won't miss a single villain lurking in the distance of today's gaming titles with the next generation power of the Sapphire RADEON X800. Outfitted with 12 parallel pixel pipelines, 256MB of GDDR3 memory, and the latest advent of technology, the PCI Express interface, Sapphire promises to make you passionate about performance!

Ground-Breaking Speed
Radeon X800 Graphics Technology delivers frame rates that surpass all previous graphics processors and up to two times the performance of the acclaimed Radeon 9800 PRO. Radeon X800 graphics technology provides an extremely smooth, responsive HD gaming experience, putting capable gamers in complete control of even the most demanding game titles. A new architecture based on the latest .13 micron, low-k manufacturing process with ultra fast and efficient GDDR3 memory combine to produce extreme data rates and unbelievable acceleration in a quiet, cool, single-slot solution.

Breakthrough Image Quality
Radeon X800 Graphics Technology defined a totally new High-Definition Gaming experience for the avid gamer by maximizing performance and image quality in higher detail and at higher resolutions than ever before. ATI‘s new and revolutionary 3Dc™ image enhancement technology brings characters to life and scenery to greater realism by enabling significant improvements to the image detail of character art with increased performance and lower memory usage.3Dc™ is slated to become the industry standard to support more complex high-definition visual effects in real time.

Radeon X800
The Radeon X800 graphics technology set a new standard in graphics performance and visual realism. With up to 16 pipelines, higher clock speeds and breakthrough image enhancement technology, Radeon X800 Graphics Technology introduced a whole new gaming category called High-Definition Gaming.

Shaders are the key technology that allow game developers to program a limitless range of visual effects that execute on the graphics processor. SMARTSHADER HD incorporates enhanced DirectX 9.0 vertex shader and pixel shader support that makes these effects easier to create.

SMOOTHVISION HD is a set of technologies designed to enhance the image quality of any game using advanced, high-performance filtering technology. Anti-aliasing removes the distracting jagged edges that can occur on the outlines of 3D objects, and Anisotropic Filtering sharpens blurry textures and retains the fine details in the image.

A Closer Look


  • 3Dc™
    3Dc is an exciting new compression technology designed to bring out fine details in games while minimizing memory usage. It is the first compression technique optimized to work with normal maps, which allow fine per-pixel control over how light reflects from a textured surface. With up to 4:1 compression possible, this means game designers can now include up to 4x the detail without changing the amount of graphics memory required and without impacting performance.
  • HyperZ™ HD
    HYPER Z HD is an essential technology for unlocking the potential of High Definition Gaming in the RADEON X800. By maximizing the efficiency of data transfer between graphics memory and the 3D rendering engine, it removes the key memory bandwidth performance bottlenecks that otherwise occur when rendering complex, anti-aliased scenes at high display resolutions. This is accomplished through a combination of hidden surface removal, lossless compression, caching, and fast clearing techniques.
    VIDEOSHADER HD is a key feature of the video processing engine that allows it to tap into the power of the programmable pixel shader units of the RADEON X800 3D core. This allows shaders to be used to accelerate many different video processing tasks, including noise removal (VIDEOSOAP), de-blocking (FULLSTREAM), adaptive de-interlacing, frame rate conversion, color space conversion, and much more. VIDEOSHADER HD also provides the flexibility required to support all of the latest video formats, including MPEG1/2/4, Real, DivX, and WMV9
