    TUL Corporation, today announced the PowerColor X1550 in PCI-E, AGP and Silent Cooling System (SCS) variations. These models replace the X1300 brand in an effort to re-emphasize the complete support of AMD/ATI-based graphic cards for Windows Vista platform; particularly for the entry level segment. PowerColor’s X1550 comes with a factory overclocked core of 600MHz, with memory speed of 400MHz (800MHz effective) and 256MB of DDR2 RAM. As with the entire X1K series, PowerColor X1550 is CrossFire ready and supports DirectX 9c, Open GL 2.0 and Shader Model 3.0; enabling anti-aliasing with HDR. Click here to read the full story.

    Im glad they are still supporting AGP. Im also glad that DAaMit is continuing its multitude of cards for every segment of the pc industry. Further, Sapphire and Powercolor make some great cards.

    Because it's cheap and slightly effective for people who want that extra performance boost for less than $450 or so.

    X2000 Series? already?
    I hope we start to see 1200mhz memory clocks and 750mhz core clocks.
    Those GDDR4 memory modules should be pretty damn nice too :pimp:
