No we didn't forget the "e", it is actually PCI

VisionTek has released the first PCI graphics card since the NVIDIA GeForce FX5200 and ATI Radeon 9250 was available in PCI. The new VisionTek Radeon X1300 256MB PCI provides users that lack AGP or PCI Express expansion capabilities with a new upgrade path. Based on the ATI Radeon X1300 graphics processor, the VisionTek Radeon X1300 256MB PCI features four pixel shaders and two vertex shaders. It also features a 450 MHz core and 533 MHz memory clock.

Features such as ATI’s AVIVO video processing is also supported with the VisionTek Radeon X1300 256MB PCI. Output capabilities of the VisionTek Radeon X1300 256MB PCI include VGA d-sub, dual-link DVI-I and TV-out. Component HDTV, S-Video and composite video out capabilities are supported, though a separate cable or adapter is required. VisionTek does not bundle the required TV-out adapters or cables.

The VisionTek Radeon X1300 256MB PCI is available immediately from online and bricks and mortar retailers for $129.99.

There are actually quite a lot of recent OEM boards with only PCI; perhaps none that are brand-new today, but it was quite common within the last couple of years.

An X1300 performs far more than marginally better than integrated graphics, particularly the older-gen integrated graphics found on the boards with no AGP slot. To say otherwise shows no knowledge of low-end graphics perfomance.

This board isn't for enthusiasts; it's for the average end-user. Let's stop deriding it because it isn't an enthusiast product.
