We weren’t able to secure a 6800GT DDL for testing today but we will be able to draw some conclusions based on the results today of how the X800 XT Mac Part of that is thanks to the good engineering that went into the design languages," he said. The ROM Update installer provides this downgrade option at setup. Users who are considering replacing the stock Radeon 9600 card included with some Power Mac G5 configurations will likely notice a modest increase in noise, since their cards use a silent
A day later after writing for a version of the ATI Displays that recognized the X800, I was sent an installer that included a ROM Xtender file. All this equals about twice the overall performance of the 9800, according to ATI."We have this parallel-processing machine -- we can send a whole bunch of instructions simultaneously," explained Stan Ossias, Retail package includes one DVI to VGA adapter, ATI software CD and Installation/User guide. 3-year limited warranty. In edition to the two new heavyweights we are also looking at the ATI Radeon 9800 Pro Mac Special Edition, ATI’s previous flagship part.

The X800 gets a boost here with support for new anti-aliasing techniques like sparse sample pattern with gamma correction and centroid anti-aliasing. This update is recommended for all RADEON X800 XT MAC EDITION cards. The older versions of Halo had to rely on glReadPixel to handle Lens Flares, which resulted in noticeable performance hits with Lens Flares set to High and Extreme.

Safe Boot is required to use this ROM Update.
The R423 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 289 mm² and 160 million transistors. Pixel shading is a complex technique used to render realistic lighting effects, but its dependence on low-level assembly code has stymied some developers in the past.
