The ATI Radeon 7500 offers consumers a mainstream solution with a set of standard features typically associated with premium-level graphics boards. Available in September 2001 with an MSRP of just (US) $199, the RADEON 7500 features a level of performance not seen before at this price point. It incorporates a core clock speed of 270MHz and a memory clock speed of 230MHz, 64MB DDR and flexible display support including VGA and digital flat panel (DVI) monitors as well as TV out. It delivers up to a 60 percent improvement in performance compared to the previous generation of RADEON high-performance processors.
Supports 3D resolutions (32-bit color) up to 2048x1536.
AGP universal bus (for AGP 2X/4X systems).
Quality product from the world's largest manufacturer of graphics boards means reduced cost of ownership - less downtime, low power consumption, full technical support, and 3-year warranty.
HydraVision affords the RADEON 7500 the most advanced multi-monitor management software in the industry. HydraVision allows users to define up to nine multi-monitor configurations. Work can be spread across the entire workspace or applications can be configured to one monitor or the other. Favorite features can be assigned hot keys for instant access.
CHARISMA ENGINE combines one of the industry's fastest geometry engines with revolutionary techniques for bringing 3D characters to life. The geometry engine supports full transformation, clipping and lighting at 40 million triangles per second processing capability. CHARISMA ENGINE supports cutting-edge character animation features such as advanced vertex skinning and key frame interpolation.
PIXEL TAPESTRY combines one of the industry's fastest rendering engines with an unprecedented set of 3D special effects. The chip's ability to process up to 3 textures concurrently means unsurpassed performance in accelerating the coming wave of multi-textured game content. Because of its rendering capability, RADEON 7500 enables full performance in 32-bit color, making 16-bit color obsolete.
