So what do all of these little facts and figures tell us in normal terms? It tells us that the Radeon 9500 Pro offers a full 128MB of DDR memory and also offers a much larger 128-bit data path for those hardcore 3D graphics chores. It keeps up with modern technologies by supporting the AGP 8x standard and will be fully ready to take advantage of DirectX 9 when it becomes readily available for public consumption.
It also offers built-in technologies that handle several of the functions that the nVidia counterpart handles such as shader program support for better visual quality and Smoothvision to help get rid of those nasty jagged edges in your visuals.
