With rumour spreading around the web for some time now in regards to a cut-down "Pro" version of AMD's current flagship graphics card (the HD 2900 XT) entering the top-end lineup, HIS have turned this into fact. They have today revealed specifications of their new "HD 2900Pro 512MB GDDR3 VIVO PCIe" card.
Looking over the specs it seems the only difference between the Pro and XT cards are lower clock frequencies of 600MHz on the core and 1600MHz memory, everything else looks to be identical.
However, the best thing about the Pro is that it will be priced even more aggressively than the excellent value HD 2900 XT, an RRP of just $249!
