PowerColor to ship HDMI, HDCP X1600 board next week

Hi-def ready

Tul has become the latest graphics card maker to launch a board supporting HDMI. The company's PowerColor-branded board is based on an ATI Radeon X1600-class GPU and incorporates an HDCP anti-piracy crypto chip for full HD readiness.

The PowerColor X1600 Pro HDMI has a 500MHz core connected across a 128-bit bus to 256MB of GDDR 3 running at 450MHz (900MHz effective). The GPU has 12 pixel-shader pipelines fed by five vertex-shader engines.

The low-profile board is CrossFire ready for multi-card set-ups. ATI's Avivo technology is on hand to accelerate HD video decoding and enhance the picture quality.

Tul said the board would ship next week, but it didn't provide pricing information. ®
