HIS targets Radeon X1300 card at pre-Express PCI users

Passive cooling

Last week, Reg Hardware reported PowerColor's plan to bring AMD's ATI Radeon X1950 Pro to consumers with older, AGP-based motherboards. This week, it's Hightech Information Systems' turn. It's just announced an ATI-based board for users languishing in the PCI era.

Hightech's HIS X1300 Silence is a passively cooled card fitted with an ATI Radeon X1300 GPU and 256MB of DDR 2 graphics memory. The memory runs at 500MHz, the core at 450MHz. The X1300 has four pixel shaders and two geometry engines.

The board has a pair of dual-link DVI ports and an s-video connector for TV output, all fed through ATI's Avivo HD video processing pipeline. HIS will bundle an array of adaptors and cables with the board, it said.

The part is priced at around £88 inc VAT. ®
