Or just more 3D grunt than any of their mates’ computers can manage. The memory chips are rated at 5. Please visit HWZ for the latest reviews and news. The Radeon is a new Graphics Processing Unit GPU that combines all the features of nVidia, 3dfx and Matrox to become the “jack of all trades” along with a few more of its own innovation.
