ATI will launch a budget graphics chip, the Radeon 9200SE, before the end of the month, DigiTimes reports citing unnamed sources.

The 9200SE is essentially a cut-down version of the 9200. It's clocked at 200MHz (the 9200 runs at 250MHz) and has a 64-bit memory bus (the 9200 has 128 bits of memory bandwidth). The 9200SE supports 333MHz DDR memory, compared to 400MHz DDR on the 9200. The Radeon 9200 Pro, by comparison, has a core clock frequency of 275MHz, a 550MHz DDR memory clock and 128 bits of memory bandwidth.

All three chips support AGP 8x and DirectX 8.1.

That ATI has such a chip in production is clear to see from VisionTek's web site, which has a page dedicated to the company's Xtasy 9200 SE board, which it's offering in PCI and AGP versions, with either 64MB or 128MB of video memory.

VisionTek's page lends weight to claims that the part is already available - though possibly in limited quantities - and the launch will simply mark its official debut and mass production. ®
