CNET Reviewed ATI Radeon X1600 Pro :
Comprised of five different types, ATI's new Radeon X1600 family of 3D graphics cards doesn't offer the fastest 3D performance around, but it will help you achieve a more refined video image on your PC. Although they were announced on October 5, 2005, none of them will be available until the end of November. If you're a gamer looking for midrange 3D power, we suggest a card based on Nvidia's GeForce 6800 chip instead. Although it's a generation old, that chip has all of the same 3D graphics features as the new series from ATI, and Nvidia's chip has even faster performance.
