HIS Unveils Three Concept Radeons - x1 PCIe, HDMI and AGP/PCIe hybrids
Hightech Information Systems, also known as HIS, had a couple of interesting new products at its Computex suite this year. The first of three new products is a new graphics card based on the ATI X1300 Pro GPU. It features 512MB of HyperMemory which in reality is only 256MB of physical memory -- the other 256MB are utilized from the system memory. While the specifications of the X1300 Pro card are nothing special, it sports a PCI Express x1 interface with one dual-link DVI connector. If priced similarly to other X1300 Pro based cards, expect the dual-link DVI equipped X1300 Pro to cost south of $100. Board manufacturers only offered X1600 based cards as the lowest model with dual-link DVI, with the HIS X1300 Pro HIS may have a product for an untapped market for users that want a 30” display but don't care about 3D performance.
