ATI launched its now flagship today and along with the Radeon X1800 the Radeon X1600 and X1300 were also launched.
The new family has a GPU that is right for everyone. Competitive gamers and enthusiasts looking for the absolute best will want the Radeon X1800 -- the fastest graphics processor on the planet. For those getting started in gaming or who are more interested in editing photos and videos, the Radeon X1600 delivers the best image quality available, for high-fidelity editing and playback. For those who want all of the features and capabilities of the Radeon X1800 and Radeon X1600 but who are on a budget, the Radeon X1300 will meet their needs for as low as US $79.
Each of the new graphics processors feature:
Ultra-threaded shader architecture to run today's shader-intense games faster than any product already on the market;
Revolutionary new memory architecture that makes the GPUs incredibly efficient, improving performance even more;
Fast and efficient 3D image quality that delivers the best looking games while maintaining blistering fast performance;
Avivo, ATI's technologies to greatly improve display quality and refine video playback.
The Radeon X1800 and X1300 should be immediately available and additional Radeon X1800 configurations and Radeon X1600 cards will follow later this month and in November.
