ATI has new entry-level chip for Vista

| Posted: Dec 7, 2006 9:06 pm

News from the Inquirer today has it that ATI plan to phase out their current entry-level X300 and X550 chips for a newly born "X1050" variant which is said to be clocked at 400MHz core and 666MHz memory, supporting both 64bit and 128 bit memory interfaces. It will apparently show up sometime later this month.

 


The chips are expected this month. We heard that these very cheap cards will be just enough for Vista and this is the main reason they exist.

 

This market is ATI's last stronghold and the frim is not willing to give it away that easily. OEMs will certainly like this chip. We don't know what chip is behind the marketing name but we will try to figure that out.
