Less than one year ago, PCI-Express first started making it's way onto the scene with Intel's introduction of the LGA775 platform. For the first few months PCI-E based video cards were a bit hard to find. Hightech Information Systems (H.I.S.) was one of the first manufacturers to pop onto the scene with their X600XT in July. Back in November, we had the chance to be one of the first sites to play with their X800XT in PCI-Express flavoring. Both cards performed very well, as we have come to expect from H.I.S. With the release of nVidia's 6600GT cards, the X600XT has been left a bit wanting, so ATi countered with the X700 series of cards and Hightech has sent us their X700Pro with that wicked cool IceQ cooler attached to it. As you can see from the pic above, it is UV reactive and rocks! 


  • ATi's X700XT VPU

  • Core Speed: 425MHz

  • Memory: 256mb GDDR3

  • Memory Speed: 864MHz

  • Bus Interface: PCI-Express x16

  • Dual integrated 400MHz RAMDACs

  • Eight parallel pixel pipelines

  • Six vertex shader pipelines

  • Supports VGA, TV-Out and DVI-I

  • Support for DX9 and OpenGL 1.5

  • SmartShader HD

  • SmoothVision HD

  • HydraVision

Like the GeForce 6600GT's, the X700Pro uses a .11 micron manufacturing process which enables it to use less power and still achieve high clock speeds. Just like our 6600GT's, it also utilizes the GDDR3 memory standard making these two cards pretty much on the same level; on paper. As far as real world game play is concerned, we'll find that out shortly.
