Build a business case: developing custom apps

Gateway is to use ATI's Rage Fury 16MB graphics add-in board in its Performance PC range. The company is remaining tight-lipped about the terms of the deal. The boards are built around ATIs 128 chip, a 128-bit graphics and multimedia accelerator. Offering high resolutions up to 1600 x 1200, ATI claims that it accelerates all games including DirectX, Direct3D and OpenGL games. "The Rage 128 has been praised by leading computer publications and industry analysts for its remarkable 3D graphics and multimedia ability," said Simon Greer, ATI's UK manager. The Rage 128-based chips can handle a range of visual effects needed for graphics intensive applications, such as alpha blending, fog, reflections, shadows and vivid colour rendering. Also, according to ATI, it is the first to support SDRAM and new DDR SGRAM memories. Dave Corcoran, product manager for Gateway EMEA, said: "We have a long and durable relationship with ATI, this board is the next in a long line that consistently meets and exceeds all the requirements we have for an add-in graphics board." ®
