Introduction

ATI's new X1900 XT 256 MB is designed to fit into the $300 video card segment which is bound by the X1900 GT on the lower end and the X1900 XT 512 MB on the upper end.
The only performance related change compared to the X1900 XT with 512 MB is just the installed memory, all other features remained the same.
