Sapphire adds DVI output to integrated-graphics PCs

Targets Intel chipsets, would-be Viiv boxes

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Sapphire today rolled out a trio of graphics cards based on ATI's latest chips, the Radeon X1900 XT 256, X1650 Pro and X1300 XT, but more interesting is the company's ADD2 card - a x4 PCI Express card that connects a desktop PC's integrated graphics engine to a DVI port.

Sapphire said the part requires the presence of an Intel 915G or 945G chipset, or ATI's RC410. Boards based on those chipsets must also have a spare x16, x8 or x4 slot. With the card in place, systems can connect to DVI-D display devices running at up to 1,600 x 1,200.

Sapphire's board joins a couple of ADD2 boards on the market from Molex and Prolink that bring DVI and even HDMI ports to integrated graphics-equipped systems. Many are sold to bring such PCs up to Viiv standard.

There's no word yet on the pricing or availability of Sapphire's card. ®
