Moving to the end of the card, the Radeon X1800XL uses dual dual-link DVI connectors. The card is capable of running at 2560 x 1600 at 60Hz and the dual dual-link TMDS DVI-I connectors do support two Dell 30" WS or Apple 30" Cinema displays. The third connector is for use with the video output for HDTV, S-Video, or composite, depending upon which cable is used. Flipping the card over, on the opposite side of the PCB is the retention bracket and screws for the VGA heatsink. One of the stickers contains the serial and part number as well as stating the card was made in China. The four-cornered bracket is centered over the GPU while out a ways from this frame are four additional screws to provide extra support.


As we had already published the ASUS EAX1300PRO preview in January, after realizing the Linux drivers would not be out for a few months time, we will simply recap some of the features today. The card, which is based upon the ATI Radeon X1300PRO, comes clocked at 600MHz and 800MHz on the 256MB DDR2, which has a 128-bit interface. ASUS has provided many innovations for this card, however, they are mainly limited to software applications -- and are not available under Linux. The ASUS EAX1300PRO is designed to be a budget performer, and in this article, we will also be looking at its performance.
