X1300 on plain old PCI

Why would someone release a new ATI X1300 for regular PCI?  The main reason would be the size, it can be much smaller than a PCI-E card, and work better in tight spaces such as an HTPC setup.  Of course, many HTPC setups do have PCI-E, and there are smaller versions of cards in existance.  Tech Spot's benchmarking also gives a perfect example of the difference in bandwidth between PCI and PCI-E.

While tooling around in ATI's newest driver, Beyond3D noticed something a little odd, the GPGPU.  Take a visit and find out what they discovered.

"Using R580 and with unique device IDs of 724E and 724F, at least as far as the Linux driver is

concerned and confirmed on ATI's vendor ID page, these FireStream products appear to be distinct

boards with R580, but with a different purpose than 3D graphics acceleration."
