Nyob rau hauv thaum ntxov nineties lawv tso tawm cov khoom tau txheej txheem graphics tsis muaj CPU: hauv ntuj May 1991, Mach8, nyob rau 1992 lub Mach32, uas muaj kev nco tau zoo dua bandwidth thiab GUI acceleration. ATI Technologies Inc. tau qhib rau pej xeem nyob rau xyoo 1993, nrog rau Tshuag NASDAQ thiab nyob rau ntawm Toronto Tshuag Tshawb Fawb.



ATI qhov chaw qub uas yog Silicon Valley


ATI "Graphics Sol Rev 3" los ntawm 1985/1986, txhawb Hercules graphics. Raws li lub PCB qhia, qhov teeb tsa hnub ntawm 1985, thiab qhov cim ntawm lub hauv paus chip CW16800-A hais tias "8639" - txhais hais tias lub ntim tau tsim nyob rau hauv lub limtiam 39, 1986. Daim npav no siv lub ISA 8-ntsis interface.


ATI VGA Wonder nrog 256 KB RAM

Nyob rau hauv 1994, Mach64 accelerator debuted, powering Graphics Xpression thiab Graphics Pro Turbo, ❑ ❑ hardware kho rau YUV-rau-RGB xim chaw conversion ntxiv nrog rau lub zoom zoom; thaum ntxov cov tswv yim ntawm kev kho video nrog acceleration.


ATI qhia nws thawj zaug ua ke ntawm 2D thiab 3D accelerator nyob rau hauv lub npe 3D npau taws. Qhov nti tau raws li hauv Mach 64, tab sis nws tau tshwj xeeb txog qhov pib 3D acceleration. Lub ATI npau taws kab yuav luag txhua qhov ntawm ATI khoom siv. Hauv particular, lub npau taws heev heev Pro yog ib tus thawj 2D-plus-3D cawm rau 3Dfx 3D-tsuas Voodoo chipset. 3D acceleration hauv npau npau siab heev ntawm cov kev ua pib hauv cov thawj 3D npau taws rau DirectX 6.0 accelerator hauv 1999 Qes siab 128.


Cov Thoob Tag Nrho hauv-Wonder cov khoom siv ua ke hauv 1996, yog thawj kev sib xyaw ntawm integrated graphics nti nrog TV tuner card thiab tus thawj nti uas tau tso cai rau tso saib computer graphics hauv TV teeb. Cov ntawv teev lus featured 3D acceleration powered by ATI tus 3D npau taws II, 64-bit 2D kev ua tau zoo, TV yees zoo acceleration, analog yees duab capture, TV tuner functionality, tsis-TV-tawm thiab tso suab TV txais tos.


ATI nkag los ntawm lub lag luam hauv xov tooj ntawm tes los ntawm kev tawm qauv 3D-acceleration rau laptops hauv 1996. Cov kev lag luam ntawm kev lag luam yuav tsum tau ua raws li cov cai ntawm cov PCs, xws li kev siv hluav taws xob tsawg, txo cov hluav taws kub tawm, TMDS cov zis muaj peev xwm rau lub laptop cov ntxaij, thiab maximized kev koom ua ke. Nyob rau hauv 1997, ATI kis tau Tseng Labs tus cuab yeej cuab tam, uas muaj 40 engineers.


Lub Radeon kab ntawm cov khoom siv kev lag luam tau muab tso rau hauv 2000. Thawj Radeon graphics ua chav tsev muaj ib qho qauv tsim tshiab nrog DirectX 7.0 3D acceleration, video acceleration, thiab 2D acceleration. Lub tswv yim tsim rau lub cim Radeon tiam yuav raug ua nyob rau hauv ntau theem ntawm cov nta thiab kev ua tau zoo kom muab cov khoom haum rau tag nrho kev lag luam ntau, los ntawm high-end mus rau nyiaj txiag mus rau mobile versions.


Nyob rau hauv 2000, ATI kis ArtX, uas yog engineered tus Flipper graphics nti siv hauv Nintendo GameCube game console. Lawv kuj tsim ib qho kev hloov kho ntawm cov nti (codenamed Hollywood) rau lub successor ntawm GameCube, Wii. Microsoft cog lus ATI los tsim cov tub ntxhais ntse (codenamed Xenos) rau lub Xbox 360. Tom qab xyoo 2005, ATI nrhiav tau Terayon's cable modem silicon intellectual vaj tse, txhawb lawv cov hlau lead hauv cov neeg lag luam digital TV ua lag luam. KY Ho tseem yog tus Thawj Tswj ntawm Pawg Thawj Tswj Hwm kom txog thaum nws tawm haujlwm nyob rau lub Kaum Ib Hlis 2005. Dave Orton hloov nws ua tus Thawj Coj thiab Tus Thawj Coj ntawm lub koom haum.
