Crucial Technology Europe is claiming that its new Radeon X800 Pro 256MB graphics card can provide gamers with greater image detail at higher resolutions.
The subsidiary of Micron Technology said the card, the flagship of its new graphics card line, uses a 256-bit quad-channel GDDR3 memory interface and introduces 3Dc, an image enhancement technology to improve high-definition gaming performance.
The device also features a pixel shader engine that uses 12 pixel pipelines and six programmable vertex shader pipelines.
In addition it offers the latest DirectX 9.0 and OpenGL 2.0 shader support, necessary for getting the most out of forthcoming game titles.
"Leading-edge graphics enthusiasts will seek to quickly upgrade to this next-generation video card," said Stefanie Summerfield, Crucial general manager, in a statement.
In addition to the top-of-the-range £269.99 Radeon X800 Pro, Crucial's latest video card line includes the Radeon 9200 SE 128MB, currently priced at £33.99; the Radeon 9600 SE 128MB, priced at £55.99; the Radeon 9600 XT 128MB at £110.99 and the Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB at £148.99.
