LOSTCIRCUITS has tested ATI's current mid-range card, the x1600 Pro, offered in an AGP flavour.  If you are still putting off that total systems upgrade for a bit, but find yourself barely able to play some of the newer titles with any bells or whistles enabled, this card might give your PC a new lease on lfe.

"In the middle of ATI's current GPU lineup is the X1600 series, based on the R530 GPU and

described by ATI as the "Absolute in Mainstream Gaming Performance".

3D Chip has posted an article about how a GPU works, in relativly simple terms.  If you want to know why people care more about pipelines than raw speed, and were afraid to ask, this will be worth your while.

"Hello readers and reader, welcome to our new bases series to the subject of graphic cards. Did

you not ask you already often how a GPU is constructed and calculates like it of pictures?

Run SLI on any Chipset

It finally happened and I figured it was going to be sooner rather than later. There is now a third-party patch available that allows everyone to run SLI regardless of chipset! The story started with a leaked ULi patch that enabled SLI, then users created their own universal patch. All you need is a motherboard capable of running two PCI-Express graphics cards (i.e. Intel 955X, 975X, XPress 200, XPress 3200, etc.).


If anything, this homebrew software will help increase the sales of NVIDIA cards; so I hope NVIDIA doesn't come down too hard on this patch.

Bjorn 3D examines another budget concious card from ATI, the PowerColor X1300 HyperMemory™ 2.  While the card won't break any speed records, it sports a 600Mhz core and 400Mhz DDR memory, all for under $100.

"Because not everyone can shell out $500+ green for a video card, I decided to review the

PowerColor X1600 XT and X1300 not so long ago. On February 21st, Tul Corporation announeced

another low-end model based around RV515, the PowerColor X1300 HyperMemory™ 2 (RV515LE).

Elite Bastards compares the 2 flavours of X1900, the XT and the XTX, to see exactly what you get for the extra money.  Both are based on the same chips (R580), one is simply clocked higher than the other.  Read the full review to find out which of the 2 cards is the better buy.

"From our brief foray through US retail outlets, it seems as though a $75 price difference between

the X1900 XT and XTX (When it comes to Built By ATI boards) is the best you can find at present,

The specs for the upcoming nVIDIA cards are very impressive, if VR-Zone's scoop is right.  It could even be enough to bump ATI's performance crown off.


Also, if video editing and manipulation is more your thing, check out Ryan's review of the X1900 All-In-Wonder.


"VR-Zone has posted some specs for the upcoming 90nm G71 series already. There will be two models

as we have revealed before; the GeForce 7900 GTX and GeForce 7900 GT.
