Reviewed: ATi All-In-Wonder Radeon
Author: Michael Ahlf       Date: May 20th 2001
Page: 3

ATi has done far better than they used to in putting out newer drivers to compete with the ever-improving Detonator line from NVidia, with a feature set supporting both types of bump mapping (EMBM and Dot-style). Unfortunately, some of the driver enhancements come at a hefty price, as will be seen later in the benchmarking section. For now, let's look at important features ATi's drivers will let the user change.

Direct3D: FSAA Enable/Disable and mode select (2x/4x). 

OpenGL: Force 16-bit Zbuffer, Enable Ensiotropic Filtering, FSAA Enable/Disable and mode select (2x/4x).

Overclocking: ATi's drivers don't support overclocking, but they point out that PowerStrip lets users change their clock. In my testing, I was able to bring the Radeon as far up as 185 MHz safely, just a little above the shipping clock of the 64MB Radeons out there; your actual mileage may vary.
