Diamond to launch Radeon X1800 AGP

Posted on Tuesday, November 15 2005 @ 3:15 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
The Inq reports that while ATI and NVIDIA both decided to give up AGP some partner companies decided it's still worth to launch high-end AGP graphics cards.

Diamond Multimedia has announced an ATI Radeon X1800 card for AGP users, but details regarding clockspeeds and performance are still scarce.
It's obvious that the custom-built PCB features RIALTo PCIe-to-AGP bridge chip, and only makes us wonder why no single vendor stepped up and offered 7800GT(X) on a custom PCB with nVIDIA's own BR02 bridge chip.
The card has 256MB DDR memory and features both video in and video out connectors but it's not sure if this card supports AVIVO.

It will be available later this month.
