HD 2900XT DRIVER

We expect to see the return of a very high end part by the time R comes around, assuming that there aren’t similarly debilitating delays. AMD takes graphics very seriously, and it recently reaffirmed its commitment to continue to deliver high end discrete graphics cards, so amidst countless delays and rumors of strange problems, the R architecture is quite possibly more important to AMD than the graphics cards themselves.

Keeping that in mind, we do have some information and speculation about a few of the road bumps AMD faced with R In another unique move, there is no high end part in AMD’s R lineup. Please know that this is not a confirmed fact, but just an educated guess. While we couldn’t really get the whole story from anyone, we heard bits and pieces here and there during our three day briefing event in Tunis, Tunisia.

According to AMD, it loses money on high end parts which is why we won’t see anything more expensive than the XT this time around. Power Consumption Final Words.

Please know that this is not a confirmed fact, but just an educated guess. We all know that AMD would rather have seen their hardware hit the streets at or around the time Vista launched, or better yet, alongside G Sign up now Username Password Remember Me.

We expect to see the return of a very high end part by the time R comes around, assuming that there aren’t similarly debilitating delays. More than anything, we’d guess that the lack of a high end part has a lot to do with the delays and struggles AMD saw this time around in bringing R to market.

Log in Don’t have an account? I heard it was just for OEMs at first Apparently, the first spin of R silicon could only communicate over the debugging interface.

While AMD will tell us that R is 2900xt late and hasn’t been delayed, this is simply because they never actually set a public date from which to be delayed. The real story is that AMD would lose money on a high end part if it wasn’t competitive, which is why we feel that there’s nothing more expensive than the XT.

In another unique move, there is no high end part in AMD’s R lineup. These conversations were short and scattered and not the kind of thing that it’s easy to get a straight answer about when asking direct questions. ATI’s latest and greatest doesn’t exactly deliver the best performance per watt, so while it doesn’t compete performance-wise with the GeForce GTX it requires more power. In a wild bout of pure speculation on our part, we would have to guess about one other problem that popped up during R’s creation.

We also overheard that a later revision of the hardware suffered from fragments getting stuck in pixel shaders. But the fact is that AMD had quite a few problems in getting R out the door.

AMD takes graphics very seriously, and it recently reaffirmed its commitment to continue to deliver high end discrete graphics cards, so amidst countless delays and rumors of strange problems, the R architecture is quite possibly more important to AMD than the graphics cards themselves. While the upside is that the 290x0t wasn’t totally dead, this is not a good problem to 2900xf. While we couldn’t really get the whole story from anyone, we heard bits and pieces here and there during our three day briefing event in Tunis, Tunisia.

While we appreciate AMD’s intent to keep prices in check, the justification is what we have an issue with. Keeping that in mind, we do have some information and speculation about a few of the road bumps AMD faced with R
