Well, the new ATI Radeon X1650PRO is available – it is priced well and of course performs well. So like our round up of the Radeon X1300XT cards just the other day, we will be doing the same thing with the new X1650PRO from ATI and four of its partners – GeCube, PowerColor, Sapphire and HIS. We will be looking at the cards alone with a pair in Crossfire mode to see what type of performance is on offer from one of ATI’s newest GPU’s.
ATI’s Radeon X1650PRO graphics card is a good performer and the ability to simply just buy two and throw them into Crossfire without much effort at all is fantastic and the performance gain varies from around 25% to 40% or so. While buying a couple at the same time and placing them straight into Crossfire won’t always be an option for all users, with the ability to simply buy one card now and get a second one at a later date does make it more attractive.
