    300MHz DDR Memory interface
    4 pixel pipelines with tritexel support
    1200Mpixel/s
    0.15micron technology

    A little appetizer before our main course...

    ATI Radeon SE

    Rage6C core
    -250MHz clock
    -0.18-micron fab
    -30 million transistors
    -Charisma Engine
    -Hardware T&L
    -On-chip clipping, keyframe interpolation, and vertex skinning
    -37 million triangles per second peak performance
    -25% more efficient than nVidia's T&L engine
    -Pixel Tapestry Arcitexture
    -2 rendering pipelines
    -3 texture units per pipeline
    -Peak fill rate of 1.5 gigatexels per second and 500 megepixels per second
    -CEM, Dot3, EMBM, and embossed bump mapping support
    -Priority Buffer (produces harsh and soft shadows)
    -3D texture support
    -Supports DXTC, S3TC and FXTC texture compression
    -Supersampling FSAA
    -Supports Motion Blur/Depth of Field effects
    64MB of 4.5ns DDR SDRAM
    -250MHz clock
    -128-bit memory bus
    -8.0GBps memory bandwidth
    HyperZ
    -Improves memory bandwidth by 20% through Z-buffer compression and hidden polygon removal.
    AGP 4X/2X support

    $699 US and comming soon...

    Despite beging just a highly over-clocked Radeon and not a next-generation part, the Radeon SE should outperfrom the Geforce3 since it has 8% more memory bandwidth than nVidia's card, 8.0GBps vs 7.36GBps. FSAA performance will still stink however, no HRAA. :)

    Questions on the specs? Comments? Want to see what the Radeon II will offer now? :D

    Yeah really, when you can buy a G4 upgrade for less it's out of hand.

    Were those specs for the Radeon VE multiple support card? or is the SE a completely different, and what about the Radeon II specs you promised us awhile ago? :distress:

    The Radeon VE sucks. It has dualing video ports but one of them is DVI which is practically useless.
