ATI New X1K Graphics

Though early details about the new cards had already appeared in advance, ATI today formally announced its upgraded line of Radeon X1000-series graphics cards. For performance users, the X1950 XTX and CrossFire cards (pictured) both improve on the earlier design with a higher 650MHz core speed and 1GHz GDDR4 memory (2GHz effective) and will retail for $449. The CrossFire version includes a connector to join it with a second card for a dramatic improvement in performance. Occupying the mid- and low-range are the X1650 Pro and X1300 XT, which claim the performance of the X1600 XT and Pro but with lower price points of $99 and $89 respectively. All three models feature quieter cooling technology, HDCP support for copy-protected Blu-Ray and HD DVD movies, and are expected to ship on September 14th.
