The general trademark of a manufacturer by which the consumer knows its products. A manufacturer can have multiple brand names. Some manufacturers license their brand names to other producers.
Product name:
Product name is a brand's identification of a product, often a model name, but not totally unique as it can include some product variants. Product name is a key part of the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet.
ATI Radeon X800XL
Product code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product data-sheet if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
Category :
The graphics card, also known as the video card, is the complete graphical subsystem of the PC. It is responsible for the quality and speed of video processing. For users that wish to play games or work with multimedia applications, it is especially important to have a video board with a high performance graphics processor and enough memory.

Data-sheet quality: created/standardized by Icecat
The quality of the product data-sheet can be on several levels:
only logistic data imported: we have only basic data imported from a supplier, a data-sheet is not yet created by an editor.
created by Gigabyte: a data-sheet is imported from an official source from a manufacturer. But the data-sheet is not yet standardized by an Icecat editor.
created/standardized by Icecat: the data-sheet is created or standardized by an Icecat editor.

Marketing text Gigabyte ATI Radeon X800XL

The official marketing text of Gigabyte ATI Radeon X800XL as supplied by the manufacturer
GIGABYTE Technology introduced the GV-RX80L512DE VGA card based on the ATI X800 XL series graphics accelerator with an impressive 512 MB of onboard memory – twice the capacity of standard high-end VGA card offerings that feature 256 MB of memory. The new high-definition graphics accelerator card also features a dual 256-bit memory interface and 16 pixel pipelines to ensure outstanding performance with unequalled quiet operation for media center type applications.

3Dc™ Technology
ATI's image enhancement technology that uses unique normal-map compression to bring characters to life and scenery to greater realism by significantly improving image details with increased memory bandwidth.

Supports the Microsoft® DirectX® 9.0 vertex and pixel programmable engine to ensure top-notch compatibility and performance for OpenGL 2.0 applications.

The industry's most advanced anti-aliasing technology that enhances images without compromising performance at higher resolutions.

HyperZ™ HD
HyperZ HD is an essential technology for unlocking the potential of High Definition Gaming in the Radeon X800. By maximizing the efficiency of data transfer between graphics memory and the 3D rendering engine, it removes the key memory bandwidth performance bottlenecks that otherwise occur when rendering complex, anti-aliased scenes at high display resolutions. This is accomplished through a combination of hidden surface removal, lossless compression, caching, and fast clearing techniques.

Microsoft® DirectX® 9.0
Ensures the best performance and application compatibility for all DirectX 9.0 applications.

Takes advantage of its advanced shade processing engine for user programmable video effects, video quality enhancement, and encoding/decoding of various video standards, including MPEG1/2/4, Real Media, DivX and WMV9.

Catalyst™ Control Center
ATI's all-new Catalyst Control Center goes far beyond traditional driver configuration software—it's a feature-rich and stable 3D acceleration control application that puts you in complete command of your ATI visual processing unit (VPU). Catalyst Control Center offers exceptional graphics performance and visual quality for the ultimate in performance, stability, and innovation. Safe GPU overclocking, custom profiles, and assignable hotkeys are just a few of the many new features. You'll also enjoy frequent updates, reliable customer service, and an interactive user feedback program, all backed by ATI's technical confidence, industry-leading capability, and uncompromising commitment to creating your ultimate visual experience.

OpenGL 2.0®
Ensure top-notch compatibility and performance for all OpenGL application.

PCI Express
Designed to run perfectly with the next-generation PCI Express bus architecture. This new bus doubles the bandwidth of AGP 8X delivering over 4 GB/sec. in both upstream and downstream data transfers.

To make it easier update the VGA BIOS than before and help users update the latest VGA BIOS from Internet automatically.

Maximum resolution*
The maximum number of pixels that can be displayed in the image. It is usually quoted as width × height,: for example, "1024 × 768" means the width is 1024 pixels and the height is 768 pixels.
1920 x 1440 pixels
Graphics adapter memory type*
The type of memory used by the video card. Often a combination of dedicated memory (Video RAM or VRAM) and dynamic system memory is used. UMA stands for Unified Memory Architecture, and is a computer memory architecture that allows the graphics processing unit to share system memory. Other abreviations: RAM = Random Access Memory, SDRAM = synchronous dynamic RAM, DDR = double-data-rate.
Memory bus*
Hardware and software that connects the main memory to the memory controller in computer systems. Originally, general-purpose buses like VMEbus and the S-100 bus were used, but to reduce latency, modern memory buses are designed to connect directly to DRAM chips, and thus are designed by chip standards bodies such as JEDEC.
256 bit
