AGP 4x Bridge !!!!!!!!!! could be Dual Video Cards only Ati and 3dfx do that stuff i wonder if Nvidia will ever use this technology


Q1 : Mobile RADEON (RADEON Mobility) - will use RadeonVE as the base with no hardware T&L and only one rendering pipeline and multi-monitor support

Q1 : R200 - called the SideWinder chip with four rendering pipelines and a core clock of 300MHz; optimized for DirectX 8 and said to be twice as powerful as the Radeon with dual monitor support

Q1 : AGP 4x Bridge - a new bridge chip making possible a dual chip video card with the MAXX technology

Q2 : Integrated desktop chipset A2 - from the ATi and Intel cross-licensing agreement comes a new integrated graphics chipset using the Radeon core supporting the Intel Pentium III or Pentium 4 and PC133 SDRAM

Q3 : Integrated mobile chipset A3 - Radeon graphics core using DRAM for mobile computers

Q4 : R300 - a graphics chip called Stinger featuring a core clock of 350MHz and allegedly three times as powerful as R200 targeted for DirectX 9

Q4 : Unnamed - not much is known yet but believed to be an integrated motherboard chipset using the R200 with DDR SDRAM support and aimed at desktops

HAA!!! What did I tell you? I knew ATi would do something as stupid as making the Radeon do dual chips. Just like with the ATi Rage MAXX. Hasn't anyone learned their lesson? Gezz... It'll flop over.

Where did you get your info? I read an interview with a top ATI exec which he said that they will not make a dual "MAXX" radeon graphic card and that is only a rumor. He said they could make such dual chip a card that would blow away all the benchmarks, but it would have to be at a price that nobody would buy it at.

not many can afford a geforce2 ultra and they bought that all up.
