Sapphire Radeon X800 XL Product Details

Bigger is ALWAYS Better!
Designed for the enthusiast whose games demand more storage space for larger texture files, the Sapphire RADEON™ X800 XL 512MB edition delivers more then just greater memory capacity. Boasting 16 parallel pixel pipelines, Digital Duo™ dual DVI output and vibrant textures rendered in High-Definition clarity with features such as SMARTSHADER™ HD, SMOOTHVISION™ HD, Sapphire offers the proper tools to build your gaming utopia!

Radeon X850 XL
The RadeonX850 series is the most extreme gaming graphics card technology ever created by ATI, with up to 16 pipelines, the fastest frame rates and ATI's industry-leading 3D image enhancement technology. The Radeon X850 series delivers further on the promise of High-Definition Gaming.

SMARTSHADER™ HD
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
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.

PCI Express Support
PCI Express is a new Intel bus architecture that doubles the bandwidth of the AGP 8X bus, delivering over 4 GB per second in both upstream and downstream data transfers.


Features

  • VIDEOSHADER™ HD
    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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
