AMD unveils ATI Radeon X1650 XT

80nm comes to the mid-range

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

AMD's ATI operation has unveiled the Radeon X1650 XT, as expected, pitching the part at the upper reaches of the mainstream graphics card segment. Boards based on part will, like the X1950 Pro, sport an internal CrossFire connector.

The reference card clocks the new GPU - aka RV560 - to 575MHz, while the 256MB of GDDR 3 video memory runs at an effective 1,350MHz. AMD touted the GPU's 24 pixel shader processors and high-dynamic range rendering.

Most boards will ship with a pair of dual-link DVI ports and an s-video connector for TV links. The boards will support the HDCP anti-piracy system - handy for folk with HDMI-equipped screen and a suitable DVI-to-HDMI cable adaptor.

AMD said the X1650 XT will ship immediately, for $149 or its local-currency equivalent. It named all the usual-suspect board partners. ®
