The new model has 36 pixel shader processors and 8 vertex shader processors together with a 512-bit ring-bus based internal memory controller together delivering true Direct X 9 Shader Model 3.0 compatibility. The huge dynamic range of this new processor family enables ultra realistic effects - such as dynamic soft shadows and the physical simulation of fluids like rain or water - to be processed faster

It uses a 575MHz engine clock and 600MHz (1200MHz effective) memory clock frequency to deliver unrivalled performance in its class. Operating on the industry standard PCI-Express bus and using a single slot cooler system, it is easily installed in any system housing. It can also be used in conjunction with a RADEON X1900 Crossfire Edition card to deliver enhanced performance in dual GPU systems.

    Image quality of the X1900 series is unrivalled, with 64-bit floating point High Dynamic Range rendering (HDR), blending capability and a new higher quality anisotropic filtering (AF) combined with up to 12x Anti-Aliasing (AA) in CrossFire mode. The architecture also supports AvivoTM delivering vibrant high fidelity images and video playback to the latest High definition video standards and is HDTV ready.

    Retail versions of these new Sapphire graphics accelerators are shipping with Sapphire Select, the revolutionary way to deliver a choice of games to the end user.
