Budget Graphics Cards Tested - Q3 2006 VGA Roundup

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

PowerColor X1300PRO Bravo


It's been a while since PowerColor has made its way into our labs but they came in style this time around with the X1300PRO Bravo. The Bravo naming scheme tells us that it's a little more special over standard cards.


As mentioned we have ourselves a Bravo X1300PRO and you can clearly see that features like VIVO and DDR3 memory is present. We have a small list of main features also on the front.




Turning the box over we see some more features that the X1300PRO offers. Most of the information is very standard and seen on most boxes in some shape, way or form.



Moving to the inside of the box we have the normal cables you would expect for card that offers VIVO and HDTV. We also have a DVI to VGA connector, quick install guide and a driver CD.



Moving to the card itself we can clearly see the fancy heatsink fan that covers both the core and the memory. To the right of the cooler we can see the ATI Rage Theater chip which gives us our VIVO functionality and of course our Dual DVI ports along with the S-Video connector to make use of VIVO. For a budget graphics cards, it's not light on features.


As mentioned bring a Bravo model the card is clocked higher than the normal cards and comes with a core speed of 600MHz and huge memory speed of 1000MHz.
