AMD launches Radeon 300 series rebrands for OEMs

Question: AMD launches Radeon 300 series rebrands for OEMs

AMD has quietly launched a new range of graphics cards designed for OEMs and system builders that fall under Radeon 300 series branding. Like with the HD 8000 series a couple of years ago, these cards are essentially all rebrands...

Preferred Solution: AMD launches Radeon 300 series rebrands for OEMs

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

News of the part emerged last month, and today at least one Taiwanese board maker finally launched products based on the new chip.

A visit to ATI's web site reveals a reference to the X800 GT, but only among products which its hardware partners will ship. ATI, it seems, will not be offering X800 GT-based boards of its own.

The X800 GT is believed to derive from ATI's R480 core. It contains eight pixel processing pipelines and six vertex engines, and is clocked to around 470MHz. It only supports PCI Express x16 connections - there's no AGP 8x version.

The Info-Tek boards announced today are all clocked to 475MHz. Three X800 GT-based, Gecube-branded boards are on offer. The GC-RX800GT-C3 contains 128MB of DDR SDRAM running across a 256-bit bus. The GCRX800GT2-D3 has 256MB of DDR 2 SDRAM, though Info-Tek states the memory uses a 128-bit bus. The GCRX800GT3-D3 sports a 256-bit memory bus, and is equipped with 256MB of GDDR 3 memory.

All three boards have standard-resolution and HD TV support, and DVI connectors for LCD monitor usage. Two CRTs can be hosted, courtesy of a dongle that plugs into the DVI port.

The three Info-Tek boards are priced at £99, £118 and £118, respectively.

Ati seriously needs to stop wasting their time

Answer:AMD launches the compact Radeon R9 Nano with high-end performance

Sorry AMD! I really really really wanted to buy this card for my new Skylake ITX build. But your performance/price is not nearly good enough. I would have bought this card for +20% (maybe even up to +30% if your hyped performance over 970 were been actually true) of nvidia GTX 970 price, but this +100% now... is just absurd. Sorry.

Hello TechSpotians,

I have been thinking about gettin myself an upgrade for my PC. You may have seen many of my threads, and may have called me quick at changing my mind *looks at Leeky*
As the title states I would like to get myself a hd 6950 2GB. I have read something up on the future hd 7xxx series, and articles said that they would have more processing power and etc...
I have heard that AMD might be releasing some of the hd 7xxx series Q4 2011 and start mass manufacturing in Q2 2012. But as AMD starts the production of the office cards first and then up to the high end cards it might take a while.

So my question is, will it be worth the time to wait for the hd 7xxx series or just get the hd 6950?


EDIT: I don't think it is known if the 7xxx series will support CrossFire with the 6xxx series, but I heard that you can CF a 5xxx series with a 6xxx series. Is that true?

Answer:Wait for the Radeon HD 7xxx series or get the HD Radeon 6950 2GB?

i would get the 6950, thats a very powerful crd as of now with great driver support, even though the 7xxx series is coming out it usually takes like 2 -3 months for decent driver support and longer sometimes with crossfire support in games. as for the crossfire question, u can crossfire cards from the same generation so 5xxx series only crossfires with 5xxxseries and the same for 6xxx, my friend has a 4870x2 and was starting to lag a bit in BC2 so i got him a 4890 and we put those in crossfire, works much better. But yeah i would get the 6950 now and like u said the nice 7xxx series prob won;t be out til after CES in early 2012

Microsoft unveiled Bing, a new Decision Engine and consumer brand, providing customers with a first step in moving beyond search to help make faster, more informed decisions. Bing is specifically designed to build on the benefits of today?s search engines but begins to move beyond this experience with a new approach to user experience and intuitive tools to help customers make better decisions, focusing initially on four key vertical areas: making a purchase decision, planning a trip, researching a health condition or finding a local business.
The result of this new approach is an important beginning for a new and more powerful kind of search service, which Microsoft is calling a Decision Engine, designed to empower people to gain insight and knowledge from the Web, moving more quickly to important decisions. The new service, located at Bing, will begin to roll out over the coming days and will be fully deployed worldwide on Wednesday, June 3 2009.
It is integrated with favorite Microsoft tools like Messenger, Hotmail and MSN, as well as popular sites like FaceBook, so you can search without leaving what you?re already doing online.
While most of the changes will only affect a US audience, this is merely the beginning for users who desire to explore and discover. Full story: Microsoft Press

Answer:ATI radeon 3800 series.. help

First of all let's start with this (which you have been asked before in several of your other threads),

If unsure what you have grab this,

Speccy - System Information - Free Download

and it should show what hardware you have.

as for your current problem, looking back at your other threads/posts it would appear that you have bigger problems than the video driver not installing which could be a hardware or software problem.

Is this a clean untouched Windows install, or has it been fed through something like RT Se7en Lite (or something similar), or a downloaded version from somewhere?

My PC is:

Answer:ATI Radeon HD 5600 series

Hi, welcome to the forums

Your system is sharing physical memory with video memory. It's nothing to be concerned about as Windows will re-allocate the shared memory if it's needed and with no noticable difference to performance.

You may be able to change the shared allocation using the ATI Control Panel or even the BIOS but you'd have to check them as I don't have an ATI card

I have a ATI Radeon?

Answer:ATI Radeon™ HD 3600 Series

Unless you have some non standard version of the card (3450 or 3650?), you don't need a second card for a second monitor. Don't think there has been a video card made in a long while that can't run two monitors, using two of usually three ports (VGA, DVI, HDMI, in some combination) on the card.

I am pretty computer literate, not a genius but know what's necessary.

The problem is when watching fullscreen videos on websites or any media player, unfortunately this doesn't work as it sends my screen into blackness and if left in blackness long enough; I get the blue screen (of death... scary, well it scared the life out of me the first time) .
I am running Win7 Ultimate x64
AMD Athlon x2 Dual Core Processor TK-53
2.5 GB RAM

Win7 works perfectly fine, games.

can you upload an image of the Blue screen or tell us what is written there (in the BOLD letters)?

Also somtimes problems with online videos are caused by bad or old flash player plugin or an old browser.

Although my new HP a1230n comes with, what appears to be a decent video card. Because it is integrated on the motherboard, would I be okay with staying with this card? I am an older guy who doesn't play hardcore games on my computer anymore. But I do want to do video copying with my DVD burner. And, if I did replace it, would the installation of another card in a PCI slot be going into my device manager and do some disconnecting?

Answer:ATI RADEON XPRESS 200 Series replacement

Hi Jakatak,
The HP a1230n's are actually pretty nice machines out of the box. They have PCI-Express slots so you are current with video upgrade capabilities if you ever did want to add a 3rd party videocard. That's an Athlon XP system too with a very fast FSB/memory bus.

As far as the integrated graphics are concerned, the Radeon IGP is actually one of the better integrated chips you can get. They are basically a shared vmem Radeon 7000 in capabilities, so playing a plethora of older DirectX 7.0/8.0 games is possible. They do pretty well in 3d benchmarks compared to other integrated chipsets. Obviously, they are not well suited to modern 3d/directx 9.0 games though.

So if you're not planning on installing any newer 3d games and mainly use the PC for video, audio, web surfing, burning dvd's and only light gaming- the Radeon IGP isn't a bad solution for this.

If you wish to get a fancy, whiz-bang videocard that supports directx 9.0, newest shaders and higher performance- you have a WIDE selection of cards in the PCI-Express you can use. has selections from both ATI and NVIDIA from $110 to $600 depending on how much 3d muscle the games you wish to play need.

I've had my computer for over a year now, and when I got it, it was running Windows Vista. A couple of days ago, I upgraded to Windows 7. The computer has a ATI Radeon 3400 series video card, though I'm not sure where to find exactly what card it is. Anyway, every once in a while, when I had Vista, I would be in the middle of just browsing the web, and, all of the sudden, my screen would freeze up, then everything would go all funky (the colors were right, but the picture was all screwy, I don't know how to explain it), and finally, my screen would go blank, then the picture would come right back up, but the colors would be somewhat off. What I mean is the picture just looked like it had a lot less quality. There would be something down in the bottom right of the screen that said "ATI Radeon... had an error and restarted" or something to that effect. Now that I've upgraded to Windows 7, I was hoping that if it was a software problem between Vista and this card or something, it would go away, but unfortunately, now instead of my picture coming back up after the screen goes all funky, I go to the good ol' blue screen I love so much. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:ATI Radeon 3400 series problem


Try updating the drivers for your GPU

Check the Nvidia web site

How long have you had this card?

When did u install it? Did u use antistatic bands/ or ground yourself before hand?

I'm asking because this happened to me once when i didnt use a band, it killed the card and it gave strange colour outputs with vertical lines!

That scared me enough to buy antistatic bands and work mat!

No there aren't any modded drivers for cards that old, there is nothing to mod as there is nothing in the new drivers that would support them. The best he can hope for is to use the last XP driver,

There is no such thing as fan for a card that is the same for all vendors everywhere forever.
A 6770 would likely have a Dust buster type fan and getting a new one from the OEM that made the card will likely cost more than buying a new card.

My apologies for not using the search feature to see if this topic has already been created and answered, but I am having a terrible time trying to scroll or even load pages. Under the device manager, I have a yellow question mark beside my video card, and when I tried to update the driver, it said something about "cannot be started" and "error code 10". I tried looking around on ATI's site but couldn't find anything that looked close to the video card I have. The driver info says "Version". This video card was working perfectly fine earlier today, and had been for about 3 months, so it's not a compatibility problem. Someone decided to do some PC maintenance and delete some old drivers, although I have no idea how that would have any effect on the current video driver. There was also a screen that said "this device is not using any resources because it has a problem".

If any more info on my system is needed, please let me know. Thanks in advance.

Every time i try to play a game on my hp pavilion a430n, with the radeon 9600 series graphics card;It tends to make the graphics in the games go haywire.....could someone please tell me what the problem might be???

p.s.Updated my graphics card to the latest version if that helps any.

Answer:Radeon 9600 series problem! please help!

I've been using a Visiontek 9600 XT without any problems -- can you tell us what you mean by "haywire"?

And is it an identical issue with all games or just a particular one?

Is this a new card or an old one -- and has it ever worked properly?

edit -- ok I see your attachment now.

I suspect the card itself is bad. If it is under warranty -- I would contact the vendor for an RMA.

Answer:ATI Radeon x1600 (x1650) series

I'd say that card is a Saphire card but that cooling I don't think is stock is this something you purchased privately? In my opinion someone did a lot of modification to this and used a serious bank of fans for cooling but with your current photos that's really just a SWAG.

1. price
2. clock speeds
3. amount of memory
4. DX 11
5. 3 monitor support
6. Dx 11 for newer games that will support DX11 greater eye candy and gaming
preformance, as well as Photoshop and any graphically demanding programs.

As far as helping a laptop it depends on the laptop and the CPU, amount of memory and type either DDR2 or DDR3
And on the GPU DDR5 or GDDR5

The 5 seire cards work with a different chip design for lower power consumption and greater battery life.

I use Nvidia so hopefuly an ATI member can better answer your questions and correct or add to any things in this post.

You have an exceptional laptop but it will never provide the same gaming experience as a comparable Desktop,where you can change the GPU/CPU.

I just had our company IT person complete a fresh install of win 7 64 bin on my Dell XPS 410. Prior to that I recently installed one of the AT HD Radeon 5000 series (don't have the exact model # near me). It was installed and software was DL. The software gave me the Catalyst to control my card. I was using two monitors to play Microsoft Flight Simulator. The Catalyst allowed me to stretch the screen so I had a full cockpit view. Of course this also made my windows desktop screen stretched also as one full screen.

Now that I have win 7 fresh install and the DL update Catalyst for the graphics card. I don't have the option any longer to stretch my screen. The new catalyst doesn't have the option.

NOTE: I first attempted to install the original software from disc that came with the graphics card but it would crash my computer everytime.

Can someone help me. I'm not a computer genious AT ALL!!!!!!

ok so i got a new graphics card, keyboard, and mouse for my computer.

i installed the keyboard first, then the 5700 series card. it took me about 6 hours to get the card actually running right. I tested League of Legends AND Hero's of Newerth with shadows on and high graphics settings. when i finally got it all fine tuned it looked great. everything was smooth. all 10 champions could be in the screen using colorful spells and the game would run smoothly. i Installed the mouse and everything was still working perfectly.

It was one of thous epic feelings to see it all work so well (this being the first time i can actually play with max settings AND shadows with NO PROBLEMS)

half way through the next day the graphics started to get really choppy. im not sure what happened they just are getting choppier and choppier the more i play. i have had to turn the graphics down during games to compensate for this while i try and test other possible ways of fixing this.

Answer:ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570 Series problem

You're likely having problems because you're trying to use two different GPU architectures together at the same time. Take out the 3200 and use the 4570 and you'll be good to go.

Unless I'm misunderstanding you, which I think I am now that I've read over it twice more:

the yellow exclamation mark denotes there was an error of some kind during installation. Did you see anything wrong in the generated report? You can try uninstalling the drivers from the Control Panel and upon restarting, boot into Safe Mode and use Driver Sweeper, check "ATI", hit Analyze and get rid of all of the files that come up after the scan.

Boot back into Windows and try the install again using the latest available drivers.

Hi guys, so I've been pulling my hair out over this for a while now. I have the ATI Radeon HD 5400 series graphics card and I am trying to connect a 5th monitor to my PC.
Windows 7 detects my 5th monitor via HDMI (other 4 monitors are connected by VGA x2 and DVI x2) but Windows will only allow me to run 4 extended monitors at a time. I want my desktop to extend to 5. Can this be possible on the graphics card I have? Is it simply the settings I need to configure on the ATI Catalyst Control Center? Any solutions would be grateful.
Note: I have also tried a USB to VGA adaptor which didn't work out. Have also tried a USB-UGA display adaptor but the drivers that came with the box are not compatible with my ATI graphics card.

Hey all, let me get down to the point. Lately my steam games (Insurgency, TF2, and ZPS) have been acting up. When I play them, I can usually play 5-15 mins, but then, my character or camera freezes up, like you're being disconnected. However, I can still hear people chatting and hear the game going and see damage indicators. It doesn't go away though, so I have to disconnect. Afterwards, I cannot rejoin that same server--the connection fails. I either have to rejoin another server completely, wait a bit, or restart said game. I've been trying everything possible I could think of to fix it. I uninstalled some programs I got around the time this started happening, completely uninstalled steam and its associated programs, antispyware and antivirus scanned, and updated my gfx card drivers. Can anyone help me?

It's a really frustrating problem and make its hard for me to do my job and have fun.

i cant of done anything wrong because it was all fine at first..
it first started when i played my games the screen flickerd with all red dots
then it happend to the desktop and now on games the models are badly messed up like.. on half-life a person is like all stretched up and spikey :S
id be very happy if somone could figure out this because my father is going crazy that he just spent over a grand on a new pc and its not working!!

oh and i know this is my grahpics card because when i uninstalled it the screen was normal and on safemode but once i reinstalled it had same problem again.

Answer:Radeon 9800 series bad gfx problem! big puzzle...

Similar Issue

Yeah, same here. Except I have a Radeon 9700 PRO graphics and every now and then (usually like once every two days) the graphics will run vertical lines and dots flickering across my screen, and also messing up the graphics of the game I currently play (polygons are stretched and out of order, textures aren't in the right place, gaps on the walls, etc.). It happens to any game but the overall problem is the graphics card. Sometimes it happens while I'm on the desktop as well but it isn't as bad as when compared to playing a Direct 3D game. The only problem I think is going on is that its overheating because it runs fine when I open the side case of my computer chassis and let it get some air and cool off. Bit disappointing for me though because I have about 5 Fans as it is (6 including the CPU fan). But they're not strong enough so thats a reason why it gets to about 92-105 internally. Not good for me and alot of you might think I'm nuts, lol. The only option I think you can do is to download and install new graphics drivers @ and go to Customer Support. Just pick the correct Driver for the graphics and operating system, install, and the problem should be fixed. Another possibility is installing the latest DirectX drivers @ If those two methods dont work then just buy some chassis fans - hope this helps.

Win 7 (7100, x32) installed driver for this card and generally graphics is OK but I could not find any version of ATI Control Center or Catalyst package. It was some working for that card in XP. I am not sure if it is a source of wake up problem after sleep mode. My notebook wakes up but dispaly is dead. The only way is to reboot. I have studied a lot of posts about wake up problem but no solution so far (no positive change or total disaster including eventaully system restore option).
New versions of Catalyst does not include this card (already 5 years old).
Please let me know if somebody has solved the wake up problem for that card (or has not found any troubles and my judgement is wrong).


Answer:ATI MOBILITY RADEON 9600/9700 Series

Since this post is old, I don't know if this will help, but here goes!

1. You need to find a copy of catalyst mobility 8-12. have not had luck with newer versions.
2. you need to get mobility modder
3. follow the directions of mobility modder to mod the catalyst 8-12 drivers.
4. install as usual

as for the wakeup problem, i know what you mean. my solution is:
1. turn off the screensaver. turn off the monitor if you have to.
2. disable standby
3. disable hibernate.

i have this card in a 1st Generation Dell XPS/Inspiron 9100 and it truly is annoying to work with on windows 7

Some time ago I decided to install a new graphics card as I have become involve with the Microsoft Flight Sim X and with all of the add-ons that I was beginning to install the onboard graphics on my Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-US2H mother board was not making the grade with frame rate problems and freezes. I purchased an AMD Radeon HD 6700 Series card and installed it. When I went to install the drivers I encountered a problem with an error Install program failure. I took the PC to the computer tech guy at my wife’s work and he had a look and managed to get things working for me. I asked him at the time if I may experience this problem again when I next update my drives and he replied yes most probably.
Its been sometime maybe 12 months since this happened and tonight I decided to check if there was a driver update for my card so I went to the AMD website and downloaded there app that scans your system and detects if there is a newer driver available. It detected that there was a new driver 12-2_xp32dd_ccc.exe it downloaded it unpacked it and began to install the driver all seems fine until it gets to the Catalyst Control Center part of the installation and then a dialogue box pops up saying Install Package Failure click OK and new message appears Failures occurred during installation view log

Answer:AMD Radeon HD 6700 Series drivers problem


Have you tried rolling back to the previous driver to see if that fixes things?


Uninstalling the driver package completely to the point where the is a yellow "!" mark under display in device manager and reinstalling. Make sure u delete any files left behind after uninstalling, before reinstalling.

I recently bought a Radeon 9800 series (256MB), but I'm having some confusing issues with it. After plugging in the power lead to it on my 300W PSU, when you pressed the power button on the computer, the pc would burst into life for a fraction of a second, and then die. If you removed the power lead from the Radeon, it powered up fine with the familiar "you need to connect your power lead" sign.

I figured a 300W PSU was too weak, so went and bought myself a 500W, but exactly the same thing happens.

Finally, after testing a few PSUs I had around, a 350W seems to work it; however my frame rate is exceptionally slow and 3D Mark results are way below what they should be.

I would ideally like to get the 500W PSU working...does anyone have any pointers?

My Machine Configuration is as follows:-

P4 3.4GHz @ 800FSB with 1MB Cache
1GHz dual channel DDR-3200
160GB HDD space
Radeon 9800 Series w 256MB RAM

Any help would be very gratefully received. I have done a google trawl and a few people complain about power issues - but nothing quite like this.

i have 32-bit windows xp sp2 and i need to update my driver to play a game i recently got. i have the radeon x300 series driver, and according to support, i need to update using an ATI driver. but i have no idea how, and which one to pick, etc. please help.

Answer:updating radeon x300 series driver

I suggest that you upgrade XP SP2 to SP3 and then install all the post-SP3 high-priority updates before you worry about updating the ATI graphics driver.


Go into the Device Manager, then click the + in "Display Adapters", then double-click the ATI graphics device to open its properties window, then click the "Details" tab.

What's listed for driver date and driver version?

sorry, if someone already posted this but I think this is well worth repeating(It should become sticky at least in Satellite section of the forum.)

It seems not Toshiba, but ATI/AMD finally heard countless cries of despair, frustration, anger and pretty much of everything for a new Mobility Radeon 2600HD drivers.
Although so far, there was almost no problem with an old one, but as the recent game titles(Mass Effect 2 for example) showed up, there are crashes/errors/freezes etc. under Win7 with no apparent reason. So I searched through error logs in computer management and found out that game's requirement for the latest drivers are in this case really serious.(and since the ME2 uses modified/updated Unreal Warfare 3 engine, which is among the most wide used these days, I think more such problems will occur in coming year(s)).
According to logs, the faulting module was really part of an ATI driver, so I searched. Obviously, I found nothing for my P200 on the official driver download page so the last resort was ATI/AMD driver download section(although I wasn't giving it too much hope, because of, for a common user, annoying ATi's politics to let HW manufacturer's to modify their drivers rather than releasing the unified one for a whole model series. Nvidia with their UDA got it much much better.)

And I was really suprised when I found this one here:

I tryed to update using the Windows Update driver : "Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. driver update for ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4500 Series (Engineering Sample - WDDM v1.1)"

I tried update the latest driver on the AMD website while using compatible mode with Windows 7.

I?m having a problem with graphics on my laptop. Whenever I switch to full screen, either watching a movie or playing a game, the screen starts flashing and jerking. The end result is the movie or game goes back to the minimized size and I get an error message. The message states that my display driver failed and was restored. I?ve also noticed the icons in the upper right corner (minimize, restore, close) stop functioning.
My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite A135-52276. The operating system is Windows 7 Ultimate-Service Pack 1-32 bit. The graphics information shows ATI Radeon Xpress Series (0x5A62). The Total Available Grphics Memory: 831 MB. The current driver is from ATI Technologies, driver date 12-01-08, Version 8.561.0.0. Resolution is 1280 x 800.
I?ve tried Windows Update to check for updated drivers-tells me what I have is the best choice. I?m hoping you could help me-it?s really frustrating. Thank you.

Answer:I am having a problem with my ATI Radeon Xpress Series graphics.

Welcome to Seven Forums Snoopster03.
Windows update is often behind with drivers. How old is the laptop? The ATI designation indicates 3-4 years? You can go the Toshiba support site and see if they have a newer driver available for your model. Most laptops have specially created drivers which should be used for best performance.

Hi everyone.

I have a Dell Inspiron 15R-SE 7520 Laptop which has the AMD Radeon HD7700M GPU.

I'm currently playing Grand Theft Auto 5 and trying to tweak the graphics.
The first question I have is regarding the anti-aliasing.

Within the game settings for the graphics I have the options of using FXAA, MSAA and Reflection MSAA.

Can I enable all of these options together or is it only advisable to use on or the other? If so which one? I suppose what I'm trying to ask is.... Is one option a global setting which overrides the other?
The second question I have is regarding the overall settings.

If anybody here has the same GPU as I have and plays GTA 5, which settings give you the best visuals whilst keeping the game running smoothly?
I would be very grateful for your experienced input.

Many thanks in advance.
