Top selling brand of 2002 returns with new line XTASY products based on award-winning ATI RADEON technology…


VisionTek's line of XTASY 3D graphics accelerators were the top choice of consumers last year and the company is hoping to recapture the number one spot once again among PC gamers and PC product resellers with the introduction of its new products.


VisionTek has opted to base its new line of 3D graphic accelerator products on ATI's RADEON technology. ATI has been successful in eclipsing its rival NVIDIA in performance for every segment of the PC gaming market. ATI has racked up an impressive string of editorial awards along the way as well, including PC Magazines Award for Technical Excellence. VisionTek was recently named as ATI's Premium Retail Partner for North America.


The XTASY line of products features solutions for gamers ranging from entry-level to PC enthusiasts. The XTASY 9500 PRO features the RADEON 9500 PRO visual processing unit, 128MB of DDR memory and an AGP 8X interface. It has eight parallel rendering pipelines for incredible gaming performance and has support for Microsoft DirectX 9. It will retail for $219.99 less a $20.00 consumer mail-in rebate. It is targeted at the mid-range PC enthusiast who is seeking the latest 3D graphics features in an affordable package. The XTASY 9100 will be available in both AGP and PCI bus types. There will be models with 64MB, retail $79.99 after a $20 mail in rebate, and 128MB, retail $129.99. These cards are targeted at budget minded consumers who want the benefits of advanced 3D performance but at a more conservative price level.


VisionTek will be adding additional products to its line up in the coming weeks.
