Charles Chou, Taipei; Jessie Shen, DIGITIMES

Info-Tek, the producer of GeCube-branded graphics cards, recently launched its AGP 8x graphics cards based on the ATI Radeon X1600 and X1300 graphics processor unit (GPU) series.

The availability of the GeCube Radeon X1300 AGP (GC-RX1300GA2-D3) is slated for the end of this month, whereas the GeCube Radeon X1600 AGP (GC-RX1600PGA2-D3) is scheduled to hit the market by the middle of January, 2006, according to the company.

Both the GeCube Radeon X1300 AGP and GeCube Radeon X1600 AGP feature embedded 256MB DDR2 memory, which enhances game visuals and facilitates real-time responsiveness, according to the company. The AGP interface allows gamers to easily upgrade without their systems without having to replacing motherboards, said the graphics card maker.

The suggested retail price for the GeCube Radeon X1300 AGP is US$129, whereas the GeCube Radeon X1600 AGP will be priced at US$179, the company noted.
