ATI Radeon X800XL
ATI's image enhancement technology that uses unique normal-map compression to bring characters to life and scenery to greater realism by significantly improving image details with increased memory bandwidth.
Supports the Microsoft® DirectX® 9.0 vertex and pixel programmable engine to ensure top-notch compatibility and performance for OpenGL 2.0 applications.
The industry's most advanced anti-aliasing technology that enhances images without compromising performance at higher resolutions.
HyperZ HD is an essential technology for unlocking the potential of High Definition Gaming in the Radeon X800. By maximizing the efficiency of data transfer between graphics memory and the 3D rendering engine, it removes the key memory bandwidth performance bottlenecks that otherwise occur when rendering complex, anti-aliased scenes at high display resolutions. This is accomplished through a combination of hidden surface removal, lossless compression, caching, and fast clearing techniques.
Microsoft® DirectX® 9.0
Ensures the best performance and application compatibility for all DirectX 9.0 applications.
Takes advantage of its advanced shade processing engine for user programmable video effects, video quality enhancement, and encoding/decoding of various video standards, including MPEG1/2/4, Real Media, DivX and WMV9.
