ATI releases new graphics cards

ATI introduced new low-end and high-end graphics cards.

ATI Technologies has introduced several graphics cards, including three that it says offer top performance at a low cost and two more that make up a new family of high-end cards.

Three new Radeon cards, announced on Wednesday, offer the quality of ATI's higher-end cards including simultaneous high-dynamic range lighting and full screen anti-aliasing, but cost less then similar products, ATI said. The new X1300 XT costs US$89, the X1650 Pro will retail for US$99 and the X1900XT will sell for US$279.

The cards can display 1.07 billion colors when used with 10-bit displays.

ATI also introduced the Radeon X1950 series that offers very fast performance and high quality imaging, aimed at serious gamers. The cards will cost US$449.

The X1950 can render fast frame rates at high resolutions or maximize image quality settings for users of mainstream resolutions.

All of the new cards are supported by Catalyst, ATI software that offers gamers ongoing software updates for performance, stability and new features.

Compatible with Microsoft Corp.'s upcoming Vista operating system and capable of supporting high-definition formats, the cards are meant to improve images displayed on PCs from games, DVDs and photos.

Both the new low-end and high-end cards are expected to ship on Sept. 14.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
