The Cards - PowerColor X1650PRO
PowerColor are again using a small box for the X1650PRO which states that the card includes Dual DVI and 256MB of DDR-3 memory. We also see the new Windows Vista Ready logo which is starting to pop up on a number of ATI cards these days. To the left of the box are a few of the key features found on the X1650PRO.
The same problem we saw on the X1300XT is also present on the X1650PRO box with the board features stating only 256MB of DDR-2 memory as opposed to the DDR-3 that we saw on the front of the box.
Opening up the box we have the same package that is found in the X1300XT. Along side the quick installation guide we have an S-Video to RCA connector, DVI to VGA connector and a Cyberlink DVD Solution which comes with a few copies of different Cyberlink software.
We can see the heatsink fan sits directly on top of the core with the fins leading out over the memory. The heatsink design is actually quite good as you can see the fins are able to push the air out all sides of the card, helping keep it as cool as possible.
Turning over the card we can see that the card is stated as a X1650PRO 256MB DDR-3 card. The heatsink is simply held together with the four screws.
Dual DVI is included like the GeCube offering along with our video out port. It's a bit disappointing about the video cables that come with the card as there is simply a converter and to make use of the TV Out you will have to purchase an S-Video or RCA cable separately, while its not expensive it is just frustrating that PowerColor don't choose to include it.
Looking at the clocks we find a core clock speed of 600MHz and a memory clock speed of 1400MHz DDR.
Not the fastest card out of the pack like we found with the X1300XT article but we will see what it is capable of and what kind of performance the lower clocks do to the overall score.
