Today, we take a look at the ASUS Extreme AX1300PRO/TD, which uses the ATI Radeon X1300 Pro VPU. While the X1300 Pro is considered low-end in the X1000 family, it is designed to stand up to the previous generation's mid-range cards such as the GeForce 6600. At a similar price point, the X1300 Pro looks set to be the GeForce 6600's next competitor. Both have identical memory configurations, using GDDR2 chips clocked at 400Mhz. But is the X1300 Pro's newer architecture sufficient to fend off the NVIDIA GeForce 6600, which has twice the number of pipes? Read on to find out!
