The highly anticipated release of GECUBE Radeon® X1800 with ATI CrossFire™ Platform and Multi-VPU Technology support, will introduce cutting-edge technology plus an entirely new 512MB memory platform to unlock the potential of 3D gaming. The powerful 512MB GDDR3 memory of the RADEON X1800 lets users experience unparalleled game elements and intensely-realistic colors at higher resolutions like 1920×1440 and 2048×1536. The doubling of memory also enhances visual quality and fastens up responsiveness without affecting performance.
The GECUBE Radeon® X1800 512MB memory also affects game developers, whom may now set the bar for visual performance higher than before for next-generation games currently in production. Memory-intensive processes such as storing high definition textures, concurrent access to multiple high definition source maps, and techniques for multiple rendering targets will now be obsolete. Marking a momentum shift in the gaming industry, 512MB memory will now allow developers to concentrate on other gaming facets and worry less about memory usage.
