ATI Radeon X1300XT Graphics Cards Compared

By: Shawn Baker | AMD Radeon GPU in Video Cards | Posted: Oct 15, 2006 4:00 am

The Cards - PowerColor X1300XT

 

Moving onto card number two, we have with us the PowerColor X1300XT. Like the GeCube we have another small box on our hands and all the normal information is located on the front of it. We can see that this card also comes with 256MB of DDR-3 memory and Dual DVI. There is a little run down on some more core specific specs and a mention of it being Vista Ready.

 

 

Flicking the box over we have a large run down on what AVIVO is and what it has to offer and we also have a small blurb on the X1300XT and some key features. What is interesting is that the key features mention that the X1300XT has 256MB of DDR-2 memory as opposed to the DDR-3 that is mentioned on the front of the box.

 

 

Inside the box there isn't a whole lot. We have a DVI to VGA connector, S-Video to RCA connector, CD with some Cyberlink software and a quick installation guide. Another very limited package but it is to be expected from these cheaper cards. The smaller package lets ATI and its partners be more aggressive on the already very aggressive low-end segment.

 

 

Moving onto the card we again have quite a large cooler again with it covering up a large majority of the card. Like all other X1300XTs, we have no extra power connector.

 

 

 

Like we saw on the front of the box, the PowerColor X1300XT offers Dual DVI. We can also see the S-Video adapter for people wanting to make use of the TV-Out ability. The Dual DVI is a nice touch again like the GeCube model with everything else just generally pretty standard across the board.

 

 

Clock Speeds

 

Along with the DDR3 model we have with us today PowerColor also have 256MB and 512MB DDR-2 versions. The card comes clocked with a more moderate 500MHz core and 1000MHz DDR memory speed. It is the slowest clocked card out of the pack but we will see how this impacts performance.
