    Taipei, Taiwan, December 13, 2005--Info-Tek Corporation, the major supplier of the world's leading graphics card brand GECUBE™, today announced the world's first RADEON X1000 AGP Series Graphics products with the launch of the RADEON® X1300 and RADEON® X1600 graphics cards.

    This simultaneous release of the GECUBE RADEON® X1300 and GECUBE RADEON® X1600 highlights an embedded memory of 256MB DDR2 memory that enhances game visuals and facilitates real-time responsiveness. Extremely realistic colors at higher resolutions (1920x1440 and 2048x1536) transport users to a gaming dimension bordering on surrealism. The AGP interface also allows gamers to easily upgrade without replacing large PC components such as motherboards.

    The GECUBE RADEON X1000 AGP series all support Avivo technology. Video capture and playback is radically improved resulting in quality at 64 times higher the number of colors currently available in current PCs. An unprecedented 10-bit processor via Avivo's display engine makes this possible.

    The GECUBE RADEON X1000 AGP series also support ultra-threading technology and Shader Model 3.0, which groups together brand new pixel and vertex shaders in order to create accurate lighting and shading. Thus, gaming settings and conditions drastically raise the bar in 3D gaming.

    “Our main goal is to fulfill all of our gaming customers' desires,” said Larry Yeo, General Manager of Info-Tek's Multimedia Business Unit. “Because the AGP interface is still widely used, Info-Tek undoubtedly will offer the most responsive support. Plus, the GECUBE RADEON X1000 AGP series is extremely cost-effective in terms of gamers who often upgrade their systems in seeking the perfect gaming environment.”
