    Don't get too excited yet. They did not say how many shader channels it will have. But at least they didn't rape the memory interface.

    This is long overdue. ATI is sorely lacking in the mid range market. The 1300/1600 is definetly low end compared to the 7600 GT line.

    Maybe I'll just spring for the X1950XTX. It looks pretty phenomenal so far. A cheap midrange is nice to see, however.

    That is a vendor supplied benchmark. I would not make a decision based on those numbers.

    Read the ACTUAL reviews elsewhere. The performance delta is much less, but it is still a great product for the price.
