I'll post them soon.
So post them already!
Keeksy just likes watching guys get excited.
Only information i've seen is this:
300MHz DDR Memory interface
4 pixel pipelines with tritexel support
wow, that sounds promising
A little appetizer before our main course...
ATI Radeon SE
-30 million transistors
-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
-Supports Motion Blur/Depth of Field effects
64MB of 4.5ns DDR SDRAM
-128-bit memory bus
-8.0GBps memory bandwidth
-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?
$699?! GAWD! Graphics cards are getting better but way to expensive!
Yeah really, when you can buy a G4 upgrade for less it's out of hand.
I dont know what all that means, but I like it!!
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?
The Radeon VE sucks. It has dualing video ports but one of them is DVI which is practically useless.
