| Video Cards News | Posted: Nov 8, 2004 10:00 pm

As mentioned earlier on, ATI aimed to release their new series of PCI-Express equipped Athlon64 chipsets today dubbed the "XPRESS 200" series. Aimed more so at the budget / entry level market for Athlon64, the two varying chipsets differ in that the 200G carries an integrated DirectX 9 capable graphics core, and the 200P does not. Interested to see how it's performing against the competition (or there lack of)? Naturally we see a bunch of sites surface with all the info you'll be seeking, as per the below list folks. Of course it'll be updated as more coverage on the two new chipsets come in.

 

Update: ATI have since made available the official PR for your reading pleasure.
