ATI HYPERMEMORY DRIVER

How does the operating system know which memory is roped off for the GPU? It relies on new fast data transfer mechanisms within PCI Express. HyperMemory technology is always enabled in the video driver. The solution offers excellent performance for 2D acceleration tasks while also maintaining adequate memory speed capable of playing some modern 3D game titles with reduced quality.

This page was last edited on 4 Marchat It relies on new fast data transfer mechanisms within PCI Express. Microsoft imposes some new memory allocation restrictions in the Windows Vista operating system that were different under Windows XP.

See your browser’s documentation for specific instructions. But just because the two technologies are similar in their intentions, does not mean they are similar in their results.

Shared system memory is a portion of the system memory that can be dynamically allocated for graphics when additional memory is needed. Hypermemorj graphics memory is memory that is available for exclusive use by the graphics subsystem. Please try again shortly. A quarter century tour; sti Space Marine’s job is never done.

ATI’s version, called HyperMemory, utilizes a smaller on-board frame buffer and the fast PCI Express bus to take advantage of system memory for graphics rendering purposes.

Budget GPU Comparison: TurboCache vs HyperMemory | ATI’s HyperMemory Technology

The local and system memory areas are not noticeably separate to the user and often HyperMemory solutions are advertised as having as much as MB RAM when this is actually referring to the potential use of system RAM. Views Read Edit View history.

A video jypermemory with hyper memory typically is slower in 3D benchmarks than a similar video card which has its own discrete video memory. This occurs due to a number of factors. However, to make up for the inevitably slower system RAM with a video card, a small high-bandwidth local framebuffer is usually added to the video card itself under Game or Graphic environment.

This can hypdrmemory noted by the one or two small RAM chips on these cards, which usually have a bit or bit bus to the GPU. Asia Pacific and Oceania. Javascript is disabled in this browser. Retrieved from ” https: For systems with physical memory 4GB, the HyperMemory calculation requires an extra step.

First, the address space is limited to 4GB in a bit hardware environment at that this discrepancy does not occur in bit Windows. What happens to the data that was stored there? Home Reviews News Forums.

how do I enable hypermemory on my graphics card?

Latest News Latest Videos. Logitech’s intelligent solution to their smart home restores Harmony. All of these questions and more complex ones need to be answered by the driver engineers at both ATI and NVIDIA and that will ultimately determine the overall performance of these video cards. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This small local hypermeomry caches the most often needed data for quicker access, somewhat remedying the inherently high-latency connection to system RAM.

The solution offers excellent performance for 2D acceleration tasks while also maintaining adequate memory speed capable of playing some modern 3D game titles with reduced quality.
