PowerColor X600 XT PCI-Express 128MB

@ 2005/01/02
Right now PCIE is still in its infancy. Because of this, there is not a lot of demand for PCIE cards, and so they aren’t as readily available as their AGP equivalents for the most part. Until just recently, if you were in the market for a PCIE card, you were pretty much limited to ATI products because NVIDIA’s cards were largely unavailable. Finally we are starting to see more of NV’s PCIE cards in the marketplace, at least in the low-end and mid-range sectors.

Today we will be taking a look at the Radeon X600 XT 128MB from PowerColor. The X600 XT has 4 pixel pipelines and operates at 500 MHz core and 370 MHz (740 MHz DDR) memory speeds. At present, the X600 XT is pretty much a middle-of-the-road offering. Above the X600s you have the X700s, which offer better performance for just a bit more money. On the NVIDIA side, we have the 6200 series and the 6600 series, which are the closest competitors to ATI’s X600s and X700s.
