This chip is presented by ATI RADEON 9700 128MB, AGP.
In July 2002 ATI Technologies announced the most powerful accelerator for today - RADEON 9700. Later ATI RADEON 9700Pro was released on this GPU. The most detailed review of this card is here.
On the 10th of January 2003 the latest drivers from ATI are 6.243, 6.255 and 6.275 for Windows XP.
By the end of the month the product belongs to the $230-270 range; supports DirectX 9.0; closest rival: GeForce4 Ti 4600.
I shall note there's Radeon2.ru, web-site that tracks all software novelties from ATI and offers improved drivers versions with preset registry settings for increasing RADEON cards perfomance.
All the latest drivers belong to the CATALYST serie.
As there are currently not actual apps, using Shaders 2.0, and DirectX 9.0 hasn't been released, we'll provide some demos, based on DirectX 9.0.beta1.
Taking into account the new anisotropy quality, I recommend you to read the anisotropic filtering section.
Below are screenshots of the new RADEON 9700 feature: SmoothVision II - MSAA.
