ATI Technologies have introduced three new Radeon cards, said to offer the quality of ATIís higher-end cards including simultaneous high-dynamic range lighting and full screen anti-aliasing, but costing less then similar products, ATI said. The new X1300 XT costs £48 / $89, the X1650 Pro will retail for £53 / $99 and the X1900XT will sell for £148 / $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 and creative professionals. The cards will cost £238 / $449.

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

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

Compatible with Microsoftís 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 September 14.

The X1950 has totally wiped the floor with the 7950 nvidias fastest and much more expensive card, its slower, less featureful, noiser, hotter and more energy hungry than the X1950 and its only got DDR3 ram compared to the ddr4 on the x1950, if dx10 wasnt so close and i wasnt so ridiculously skint(when did beer get so expensive) i would be getting one.

The x1900XT looks good, for reference its the same as the XT about now except its only get 256Mb of ram not the 512Mb of the current version so its cheaper. Also the only DDR4 card is the 1950 the others are all DDR3 or DDR2.
