ATi Radeon 256 (AGP)

This ATi Radeon 256 is 11 weeks newer then my ATi Rage 6. Week 22 of 2000 is around 29 May to 4 June. Back then people already knew the successor of the Rage 128 Pro would be Radeon 256 because ATi claimed some Radeon-domain names.

ATi Radeon 256 (AGP)

Almost identical to this Radeon 256 sample. Besides the fact that this one doesn't have resoldered transistors and the bolts are actually screwed into the D-SUB and DVI connector I can't think of any difference :).

ATi Radeon 32MB DDR (AGP)

This engineering has SG RAM modules and lacks the DVI port. It also lacks some capacitors but that might be related to the RAM used. The SG RAM might be less demanding. Compare the PCB with the SDR-SDRAM version and see it has quite much similarities. My newer ATi Radeon 256 samples with SDR-SDRAM s... > Read more

ATi Radeon 32MB DDR (AGP)

This is the ATi Radeon 32MB DDR (later renamed to Radeon 7200) as it could be found in the shelves. The PCB has empty spots for TV (ViVo) functions which could be found on the more expensive boards.... > Read more

ATi Radeon 64MB DDR 'Elite' (AGP)

'Elite' is what the BIOS string says, and sure it is! This R100 is almost the same as some other R100 samples I have except that it has 5NS RAM chips. This means the RAM can be clocked to 200MHz instead of the usual 166MHz. To give it some more rendering muscle ATi also boosted the GPU to 183MHz. Yo... > Read more

ATi Radeon 32MB DDR (AGP)

A production version of the Radeon R100. It has 32MB SGRAM and lacks Video In/Video Out functions. It's practically the same as this Radeon 32MB DDR.

ATi Radeon 32MB DDR (AGP)

ATi wanted the Radeon R100 (Radeon 7200) to be low-profile too and this sample is the living proof. It has a standard DVI port and SGRAM. The SGRAM versions tend to have fewer parts on the PCB like capacitors and SMD's which makes it more attractive to use SGRAM. SGRAM is even slightly faster but th... > Read more

ATi Radeon 32MB DDR (AGP)

Passive cooling and just 166MHz. Those are the ingredients of the Radeon 32MB DDR low-profile sample. Besides that it's the same as this Radeon.

ATi Radeon 7000 (AGP)

An ATi Radeon 7000 low-profile sample. This card does not have a regular DVI connector. The connector has four pins extra and requires a special cable which supports up to two monitors (dual-head on one output). Because I didn't have the cable I was unable to test this card.

ATi Radeon 7200 DDR (AGP)

The Radeon 64MB DDR has been produced until summer of 2001 and after the release of the Radeon 8500 the cards were renamed to Radeon 7200. Because this card is dated 14th week of 2001 I named it Radeon 7200 DDR as well. I have similar cards (Engineering samples; i.e. [url=http://thandor.net/object/1... > Read more

ATi Radeon 7000 (AGP)

A non-qualification sample like this Radeon 7000. Also equipped with a special DVI-like (but with four pins extra) connector for dual screen setups. Because I don't have the cable I'm not able to test the cards output. Though I was able to extract the BIOS us... > Read more

ATi Radeon 7500 (AGP)

A production ATi Radeon 7500. This card is based upon the budget (value) RV200 chipset. It doesn't perform like a beast, especially not in that time-frame but as trade-off it is low power.... > Read more

ATi Radeon 9100 (AGP)

ATi's low-end 9000-series (9000 through 9250) are based on the old R200-chip that was used in the 8500. In general the 9100 was ATi's answer to the GeForce 4 MX but in reality the old 8500, with the same chip, is a tad faster!... > Read more

Sapphire Radeon 9600 Pro (AGP)

Based on the RV350-core which is the value version of the R350. Generally this card is 50% of the 9800 Pro and it was a good midrange performer. The 9500 Pro is more advanced (chip-wise, it's a 9700 chip) and more expensive to build and thus less favorable for ATi.... > Read more

ATi Radeon 9800 Pro (AGP)

The GeForce FX didn't work out as hoped to be and the new chip from ATi was rocking! This card is based on the R350 chip, or in other words 'the powerful 9800 Pro'. The 256MB version wasn't sold much (who needed 256MB of graphics memory in 2003 or 2004?) but the 128MB version was sold in large quant... > Read more

ASUS Radeon AX800 XT PE (AGP)

This Radeon X800XT Platinum Edition from ASUS comes with a very large retail box. It even includes a webcam!

I bought this card second-hand from someone who bought it (pre-ordered) when it was new. The box has a price tag indicating it costs 535 euro!

Sapphire Radeon X1950XT (PCI-e)

The X1950 Pro uses the RV570-chip which has a reduced number of pixel shaders (48 to 36) and lower clock frequencies. In essence the chip is a bit different whereas the X1950XT is based upon the chip of the X1950XTX; all 48 shaders are active. Differences can be found in memory (GDDR3 opposed to GDD... > Read more

The "budget high-end" card. It's based on the 80nm RV570 chip and has all the ingredients for a powerful card. In the end of 2006 I bought this card but had some difficulties getting it as it was barely available in the first few weeks.
