MARKHAM, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 12, 2003--ATI Technologies Inc.

The RADEON(TM) 9800 PRO 256MB -available in limited quantities to OEM, retail and online customers - is the most advanced 3D performer available, delivering to hardcore gamers the immersive and cinematic experience they crave.

The RADEON(TM) 9800 PRO 256MB delivers full quality at full speed all the time. Built on the highly successful RADEON 9800 PRO architecture, the chip features eight full precision pipelines that provide the brute force and agility needed to render real-time, Hollywood-caliber graphics. The additional memory provided in this new board significantly increases performance at the highest resolution and quality settings. The RADEON(TM) 9800 PRO 256MB sets a new standard in 3D entertainment, allowing users to experience cinematic rendering on their PCs.

"ATI continues to blaze the trail in the graphics industry," says Rick Bergman, Senior Vice President, Marketing and General Manager, Desktop, ATI Technologies Inc. "We were the first to support full Direct(R) X 9.0 and OpenGL(TM) 2.0, the first and still the only VPU provider to offer eight dedicated pipelines of rendering power and, with the RADEON(TM) 9800 series, we became the first to bring second-generation VPUs to consumers. ATI keeps offering consumers greater power and features."

The RADEON 9800 PRO's 256-bit memory interface provides the bandwidth for real-time 3D graphics and ensures that high-resolution textures and characters are rendered precisely. Exquisite image quality is not at the expense of performance.
