    wow finally they realise how much these cards sucked...

    i dont really like the renaming of the x1600xt to the x1650pro though...its deceptive.

    I'm kinda interested in the CF-support.. I like CF. Especially if it's cheap, which this card seems to be. :)

    Looking solid. I'm glad they're going with an internal bridge this time around, and I'm glad ATI has some real competition for the 7600 GT which has basically been dominating it's above 100 below 200 dollar market segment.

    But if it really will be competition for the 7600GT where will that leave the x1800GTO??? seems a bit like cross marketing to me.

    hi
    i have a "HIS Radeon X1650 Pro IceQ2 512MB AGP" (RV530) graphic card.
    the manual is very poor.
    i have two questions:
    a) what's with the jumper on the card?
    b) why can't the temperature and fan speed not be monitored?
    thanks for your answer/help

    The jumper is probably for you to reset to swap a 2nd bios if you fucked the first bios up. If not then i'm not sure.

    About not being able to read temperatures i guess its the software problems. Modern cards are now installed with a blah blah chip that reads temperature.

    The jumper is to switch the S-Video from Europe TVs to American TVs
