MSI announces Radeon x1300 graphics card

MSI is among the first add-in card builders that announced a new graphics card carrying one of ATI's X1000 graphic chips announced today. As only lower-end X1000 chips were predicted to hit the market initially, MSI only announced a card based on the X1300 Pro chip variant.

The card comes with default specs, which include a 600 MHz core clock and an 800 MHz memory clock as well as 256 MByte memory. Pricing has not been announced, but ATI previously told TG Daily that X1300 Pro boards with 256 MByte memory will retail for about $150.
