This article will be centered around a performance look at the product since we were not briefed on the new GPU from ATI officially but we’ll also include some pictures and basic specifications on the next page for your information. We’ll soon be checking those speed claims, so read on as we showcase PowerColor’s Radeon X XT MB graphics card and swiftly following it up with the performance figures.
The larger die size and increased processing capability also come with increased power requirements. ATI’s new take of packing in vastly more pixel shader processors is simply because they are catering the Radeon X series for forward looking application that would make heavy use of pixel shaders.
