Sapphire Radeon X1650 Pro AGP

Sapphire Radeon X1300XT AGP
Budget and mid-range AGP products ready for Vista

Sapphire today announced two new AGP-based graphics cards. The newly announced graphics cards include the Radeon X1650 Pro AGP and X1300XT AGP. These new cards are similar to previously released Radeon X1600 Pro and X1600XT for PCI Express. Sapphire’s Radeon X1650 Pro AGP features 12 pixel shaders and a core clock of 590 MHz. Radeon X1650 Pro cards are equipped with 256MB of GDDR3 video memory connected via 128-bit memory bus. Memory is clocked at 690 MHz. Other notable features include dual-link DVI and TV-out.

The Radeon X1300XT arrives in two flavors equipped with 256MB of GDDR3 or 512MB of DDR2 video memory. Models equipped with 256MB of video memory are clocked at 500 MHz while 512MB models are clocked at 400 MHz. As with the Radeon X1650 Pro AGP, the X1300XT AGP has 12 pixel shaders as well. However, the Radeon X1300XT AGP has a lower core clock of 500 MHz. Features such as dual-link DVI and TV-out are available as well.

Availability and pricing is unknown at the moment, though expect the Radeon X1650 Pro AGP to be priced south of $150 while the Radeon X1300XT AGP should be priced south of $100.

The 1650pros are suppose to have 600/800 core/mem clock. I think you meant 790 MHz GDDR2.

That's what the Sapphire PR listed the specs as. Manufacturers are free to set their own clocks if i recall. And those specs might only be true for the PCI-E variants.

Probably a misprint on their part then, 700MHz GDDR3 doesn't make sense, unless it is actually 1400MHz memory. That would make this a pretty interesting product. Unfortunatly 400 and 500 MHz GDDR3 memory for the 1300 series doesn't make any sense at all so I doubt the 1650 is accurate.
Well I just checked their website and it says 450 core and 1300 memory for the 1650 pro PCIe version. They are really all over the place!
