BrZ meldt dat HardwareCentral een lapje tekst heeft geschreven over de ATi Radeon, naast al de info die we al lang weten over pixel tapestry en charisma weten ze ook te vertellen dat er een dual versie komt .
Though ATI has not officially announced any specific products utilizing the RADEON 256 chip, we were able to confirm that it will indeed be releasing a multi-chip version using the same alternate frame rendering technology developed for the Rage 128 MAXX. As with the Rage 128 MAXX, the fill rate of the dual-chip RADEON 256 will be double that of the single chip solution. One of the limitations of the Rage 128 MAXX is that only the fill-rate increases; the geometry processing still all being done by the CPU. The dual-chip configuration of the Radeon will not only benefit from double fill rate, but also double geometry processing. This means that the Radeon will effectively have a fill-rate of 3 GigaTexels and transform up to 60 million triangles per second!
The other benefit of the dual chip version of the Radeon is that dual-monitor output will be possible since each Radeon chip will have its own memory and fully functional 2D subsystem.
You might think that, like the Rage 128 MAXX, the RADEON 256 will not come out until six months after the release of the single chip solution. However, since the multl-chip technology is already developed, implementing it second time around will be much easier. ATI assured us that the RADEON 256 MAXX will hit the shelves approximately 3 months after the release of the single chip solution. This will put it directly between the RADEON 256 single chip and ATIís next generation chip coming out in the winter, 6 months after the summer release of its next product.
Om dit even kort samen te vatten: ATi Radeon wordt waarschijnlijk een top kaart en de ATi Radeon Maxx wordt gewoon 2x zo goed .
