Overview

Radeon® 9700 PRO is the most advanced graphics board in its category, featuring ATI’s Radeon 9700 PRO Visual Processing Unit (GPU), supporting AGP design specifications. Through a combination of incredible 3D rendering performance, sophisticated real-time visual effects, crisp image quality, processing speed, and impressive video features, it provides an amazing PC entertainment experience.

At-a-glance:
  • Fastest* 3D gaming performance with next-generation GPU architecture
  • Complete DirectX® 9.0 support for unprecedented realism and sophisticated visual effects
  • SmoothVision™ 2.0 technology provides new levels of image quality with advanced full-scene anti-aliasing (FSAA) and anisotropic filtering
  • Revolutionary new video features including VideoShader™ and FullStream™ technologies
  • Featuring Catalyst™ – – ATI’s industry-leading software suite with frequently scheduled free updates providing additional features and performance over the product’s lifetime

Overview

Featuring fast 3D graphics performance, coupled with sophisticated real-time visual effects, crisp image quality and cutting-edge video features, Radeon® 9700 provides an amazing PC entertainment experience.
 
  • First to fully support DirectX® 9.0
    With its SmartShader™ 2.0 technology, Radeon® 9700 supports DirectX® 9.0 and OpenGL® functionality to give developers the freedom to create more complicated and realistic visual effects than ever before.
  • First 8-pixel pipeline architecture
    Radeon® 9700 was the first graphics technology capable of processing 8 pixels simultaneously – twice as many compared to any existing product. This highly optimized design provides top 3D performance for both Direct3D® and OpenGL® games and applications.
  • 256-bit DDR memory interface
    The high-bandwidth memory interface of the Radeon® 9700, utilizing HyperZ™ III bandwidth-conserving technology, removes a key performance bottleneck and provides end users with faster graphics performance.
  • Support for AGP 8X specification
    Radeon® 9700 supports the AGP 8X standard, which allows large volumes of texture and vertex data to be transferred faster from system memory to the chip (2.0 GB/sec).
  • First to use pixel shaders to accelerate video
    With ATI’s VideoShader™ technology, Radeon® 9700 continues the tradition of providing industry-leading video and DVD playback. Radeon® 9700 also offers FullStream™ – a technology that removes blocky artifacts from video and provides sharper image quality.

Radeon 9700 Series Specifications

System Requirements
