VisionTek Radeon X1300 PCI review @ TechSpot

By on
VisionTek offers one of the more unusual graphics card product lines out there and although they exclusively deal with ATI chips, they do not cover the entire line of Radeons. For example, while they do have a Radeon X1900XTX part, there is no X1900XT, or CrossFire master cards for that matter.

Despite this however, VisionTek still present us with a number of unique options, such as their exclusive Radeon X1600XT AGP card, and now the Radeon X1300 in PCI form.

Although, the Radeon X1300 is predominantly a PCI Express graphics card, VisionTek has ported it to the plain old PCI bus. You are probably wondering why they would even bother doing this, given they already produce AGP and PCIe versions of the Radeon X1300 supporting both 256MB and 512MB of memory. Well, there are a number of reasons why such a card could come in handy, for example HTPCs (Home Theater Personal Computer). These are generally very compact and use a low profile PCI design.
