ATI To Unveil Radeon X1300CE

As Vista is going to be released in early 2007, ATI plans to release new model for value segment, Radeon X1300CE which has certified for Vista Premium in Nov. Codenamed RV505CE, Radeon X1300CE is a replacement of old Radeon X300/500 (RV370).

Manufacturing by TSMC with 80nm technology, RV505CE features Direct X 9.0c, Shader Model 3.0 and AVIVO technology. This chip is driven by 4 Pixel Shader Pineline, 2 Vertex Shader engine, 64Bit native memory controller, and a 350MHz core. Itís said to be designed for Vista.

The upcoming Windows Vista initializes the wave in system upgrade and graphic. Reason is that old and weak IGP products have got no support for WDDM, hence Aero 3D is unavailable. Targeting on this market, ATI Radeon X1300CE would be one of the best choices to fulfill the need.

Radeon X1300CE will accompany with a Low-Profile board design codenamed Blondie. This design supports up to onboard 256MB DDR2-400 memory. However, when Hyper-Memory is enabled, it could further share 256MB of the system memory, then a total of 512MB memory.

Together with 80nm technology and 350MHz low speed core, Radeon X1300CE has a 30% better power consumption compared with Radeon X1300LE. Thus passive cooling may be introduced to Radeon X1300CE. The official price is $49. Its rival would be NVIDIA GeForce 7100GS.
