HIS Radeon X1300 Pro Review

Hardware Secrets Golden Award

The Radeon X1300 Pro 256 MB IceQ from HIS

We disassembled the video card cooler to take a look, see Figures 4 and 5. As you can see, the heatsink is made of aluminum and manufactured by Arctic Cooling.

In Figure 6 you can take a closer look at ATI’s Radeon X1300 Pro chip.

The heatsink used on this video card doesn’t touch the memory chips, as you can see in Figure 7.

Talking about memory, this video card uses eight GDDR2 256-Mbit 2.5 ns chips from Infineon (HYB18T256161AF-25), making its 256 MB video memory (256 Mbits x 8 = 256 MB). These are exactly the same memory chips used by ATI on their reference model.

These chips can run up to 800 MHz. Since this video card accesses the memory at 800 MHz there is no room for memory overclocking inside the memory’s specifications. But of course you can try overclock it over its specs.

This board also comes with one S-Video cable, one Composite Video to S-Video adapter, one Component Video adapter and one DVI-to-VGA adapter.
