- ATI Unveils "HyperMemory" Technology

This was bound to happen sooner or later. ATI are aiming to hit back at NVIDIA's own Turbocache video card technology, unveiling today their own "HyperMemory" technology which Hothardware have gathered up enough info about to write up a preview article detailing the benefits/usefulness to video cards that will be introduced with this new tech implemented. If the below comments are anything to go by (along with some early comparison benchmarks against an equivilent NVIDIA Turbocache contender), then we're up for a real treat from ATI! Well worth reading through.


Update: ATI's official press release has just recently gone up on their website for your reading pleasure folks.


Today, ATI has released their counter-attack to TurboCache with the release of their HyperMemory Technology. On paper, HyperMemory is similar in design to TurboCache, using a combination of local memory and system memory to offer advanced performance in a business-class card. However of course, ATi is claiming to one-up their competition on all fronts, including price, performance and features. Also, unlike NVIDIA's TurboCache launch, today's HyperMemory technology announcment is what we affectionately like to refer to as a "paper launch". This means we haven't had the luxury of working directly with HyperMemory, nonetheless, we have been provided a fair amount of information to give us a feel for what to expect when the cards arrive to market.
