Powercolor X1650 Pro Review
Published: 24th August 2006 | Source: Powercolor | Price: |Introduction
ATI have decided that it is time to do a refresh on a couple of their mid-high range GPU's. The X1950 and the X1650 are the result of this refresh. Based on the R530 chip and using an 80nm process, the X1650 runs at a sweet 600MHz core and 1400Mhz, the card has 256mb of GDDR3.
How does this card perform when we run it through our test suite? You'll have to read on to find out...
Powercolor are a company known for no-fuss products that have what you need and none of the extra's that a lot of people don't need. The retail packaging on our sample is a pretty cool silver colour with an 'avenging angel' grasping a sword. It's a shame Powercolor didn't stick to showing the card on the box as they have done in the past. This is always good for the buyer, in my opinion.
