Dominate the competition with BulletProof TechnologySeptember 21st, 2004
Known as the company that provides the world’s top performing gaming hardware, ABIT is proud to deliver products that boost the level of play of gamers worldwide. Today, ABIT is proud to introduce the latest lineup of cutting-edge graphics cards — the RX700 Series. ABIT has designed and engineered the RX700 Series for top performance, making them the fastest X700-based cards for gaming.
Based on the ATI Radeon X700 VPU, ABIT’s RX700 Series delivers full DirectXÂ® 9 support, GDDR3 memory interface, ABIT Engineered cooling, and native PCI Express support for breakneck gaming performance.
At the heart of the ABIT RX700 is the ATI Radeon X700 VPU, which features 8 extreme parallel pixel pipelines and 6 programmable vertex shader pipelines, enabling fluid, realistic visuals. The RX700 Series also offers the latest ATI graphics technologies, designed to bring forth a new era of high-definition gaming. 3Dc™ is a new compression technology allows game developers to pack more detail into real time 3D images than ever before, improving image quality without sacrificing performance. ATI SMARTSHADER™ technology enables advanced visual effects such as depth of field and detailed hair rendering that help bring graphics to life. ATI SMOOTHVISION™ improves anti-aliasing performance and smoothes out jagged edges in the rendered frame. HYPER Z™ provides lossless Z-Buffer compression at ratios of up to 48:1, allowing for real-time shadow rendering. Along with VIDEOSHADER™ technology that delivers seamless integration of pixel shaders with video in real time, the RX700 Series is the most robust mainstream performance graphics solution available today.
Next Generation Graphics Technology
The RX700 Series is available exclusively with the new PCI Express interface, enabling bandwidths of 4 GB per second. For bandwidth-hungry applications like games, the new PCI Express interface breaks away from the old PCI bus bandwidth limitations, allowing the RX700 Series to pump out mind-bending graphics that fuel high-definition gaming.
Not content with adhering to the standard reference design, the ABIT RX700 Series incorporates BulletProof Technology that gamers have come to expect from ABIT. Like all ABIT-branded products, the ABIT RX700 Series is built with the finest quality components available. In fact, the RX700 uses only 100% Japanese capacitors for extreme durability. The RX700 also comes equipped with an ABIT-designed cooling solution, engineered to quickly dissipate heat from the VPU with as little noise as possible. For those who work in a silent computing environment, the RX700 Series meets the silent PC standard. For the gamers and overclockers, the RX700 Series enables some impressive overclocking headroom.
