Budget Graphics Cards Tested - Q3 2006 VGA Roundup

By: Shawn Baker | Editorials in Video Cards | Posted: Aug 25, 2006 4:00 am

ASUS X1300PRO Silent


ASUS are easily known for creating a more expensive card that can't always be justified but fortunately the X1300PRO Silent from ASUS has some nice features making it a bit more justifiable than normal.


With the big ugly looking Kong on the front of the box we can clearly see that they are pushing the fact that a full version copy of King Kong is included. We can also see on the front of the box the main features of the card like 256MB DDR2, TV-Out, DVI, Dual VGA and so on.




Turning the box over we have some more product features along with some of the technology that ASUS implement with all there graphics cards. Some of the features are cool others you simply won't use.



Like we saw on the front of the box King Kong is included in the package. We also have an electronic manual, driver CD, DVI to VGA adapter, S-Video to RCA and a speed set up guide.




The ASUS Silent has one of the more hardcore cooling solutions here today with it being quite fancy. To create the best cooling solution ASUS have flipped the card around and have the core on the back of the card - weird? Yes! It's not really a card that produces a lot of heat in the first case, so it does seem weird for ASUS to go to great lengths to flip the core over but they have done it anyway.


The card comes clocked at 600MHz on the core and 800MHz on the memory.
