ATI's X1800

Remember the heyday of the great AMD-versus-Intel clash, with a sophisticated processor architecture pitted against the sheer brute force of higher clock speeds? It's happening again, but with graphics processing units instead of CPUs: After Nvidia Corp.'s impressive GeForce 7 Series release in June, archrival ATI Technologies is looking to get back in the spotlight with its own next-generation graphics card, called the Radeon X1800. It's clearly a counterattack in the war -- but it's a war that ATI seems to think no one can win outright.Tech sites have been reporting on what was codenamed ATI's R520 graphics processor for months, so the new models' speeds, features, and estimated prices were being talked about long before the Radeon X1800's formal launch.


Rage3D really broke the news on the possible limitations of the Silicon Image Sil 1161 receiver that ATI's CrossFire utilized. The receiver can handle a max of 1600x1200 at 60 Hz (or essentially receive 60 1600x1200 frames per second), and runs at a maximum of 165 MHz. At first this limitation looks like a huge disaster waiting to happen to ATI with the release of CrossFire, and many are screaming that the engineers fell down on the job and should all be sacked. When I was first given this information.
