HKEPC writes ATI is planning to move the Radeon X1300 to 80nm and it will also release the new Radeon X1300 XT and Radeon X1300 CE.
ATi Radeon X1300XT is the 80nm version of Radeon X1600Pro, codenamed RV535. It has 4 Pixel Shader pinelines and 12 Pixel Shader Processor, clocked at 450MHz and supports 128Bit memory. It’s designed for against nVidia Geforce 7300GT. Actually, the market didn’t want to rename Radeon X1600Pro to Radeon X1300XT. It’s confusing and may affect its sales. The price of it will be $89.
The ATI Radeon X1300 CE will be available in October for only $49. It's a budget card that meets Windows Vista's requirement for Aero. More info over HKEPC.
