Step-up to serious 3D performance and image quality with Diamond’s new Radeon® X1300 Series, the most affordable graphics card to combine high-end features like CrossFire multi-GPU capability and high-definition (HD) display, using ATI’s heralded Avivo display technology. The X1300 delivers superior visual performance for all types of PC entertainment and productivity.

Radeon X1300
Connect your Radeon X1300 with your home entertainment devices for digital convergence, enhanced with ATI’s revolutionary new Avivo video and display technology platform.

Designed from the ground up with GPU sharing in mind, this Radeon series allows you to get incredible gaming performance by adding a Radeon Crossfire Edition graphics card for ultra fast performance that works with all games, all the time.

Enjoy flawlessly smooth video playback on your PC, enhanced with vibrant colors, sharp images, and universal TV and display connectivity delivered by AMD's acclaimed ATI Avivo(tm) technology. Computers with Avivo provide much more accurate color reproduction than other PCs - they can display 64 times as many colors - and so are essential for anyone editing photos or viewing video. In addition, Avivo makes PC games look stunning on any current display and the superb image quality gives Avivo users the gaming edge.

DirectX 9.0C Technology
DirectX 9.0c improves the graphics, security, and performance of your operating system. Download and install this update for your Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003, or Windows XP-based system.

ATI’s all-new CATALYST™ Control Center goes far beyond traditional driver configuration software—it’s a feature-rich and stable 3D acceleration control application that puts you in complete command of your ATI visual processing unit

Provides double the bandwidth of AGP 4X—2.1GB/sec. vs. 1.1GB/sec. AGP 8X enables more complex models and detailed textures, creating richer and more lifelike environments. Uninterrupted data flow allows for smoother video streaming and faster, more seamless gameplay.
