Crossfire enabled by single card
Native Crossfire enabled design, without additional flexible Crossfire cable
Provide triple bandwidth than SLI technology (24bit (12*2)>8bit)

Solid Capacitor design
Durability enhanced. Better electronic conductivity and excellent heat resistance

Single Slot thermal solution
7 cm quiet, one ball bearing fan with copper plate and fin for better thermal dissipation

ATI Physics accelerated support
Experience the true-to-life representations of reality in games with more convincing environments that include richer, more detailed explosions, smoke, debris, fluids, cloth and hair.

ATI AVIVO for Video and display perfection
ATI AVIVO provides PC users with crisp images and videos with true-to-life colors, 10-bit, one billion colors, and is an ideal partner for high-end home theater systems with its smooth multi-format HD video playback.

* HDR with AA
* FSAA and HQ feature filtering
* HDCP compliant, built-in EEPROM and HDCP key
* 24 pixel shaders on each processor

The RADEON X1650XT features a Shader Model 3.0 architecture done right.
90nm technology allows ATI to packs more features per square millimeter
than ever before.

New Ultra Threaded 3D architecture
The Radeon X1650XT features Ultra-Threaded 3D architecture capable of handling up to 128 threads at once. This design minimizes wasted processing cycles, and delivers over 95% efficiency for shader processing.

24 Shader Processors
As new applications require complex calculations; the Radeon X1650XT brings its powerful shader technology to new price levels. Multi-core technology decouples the shader processors from Texture units to improve branching efficiency for next generation SM3.0 features.

High Precision HDR
High Dynamic Range (HDR) rendering takes advantage of color formats with greater range and can product more realistic images. The X1650XT architecture three different HDR modes for ultimate flexibility

* 64-bit Floating Point for maximum range
* 64-bit Integer for maximum precision
* 10:10:10:2 for maximum speed
* All support Blending and Anti-Aliasing (exclusive ATI advantage)

The RADEON X1650XT is built for speed. To deliver this, a brand-new 256-bit internal Ring Bus was created to consistently operate at a high internal data rate that consistently feed the 24 x2 shader processors. The result

* Supports of up to 1.4GHz GDDR3
* Programmable Logic that allows for driver updates for memory efficiency
* New Cache Design for more optimal performance
* Improved rendering algorithms that deliver better compression and improved hidden surface removal for stencil shadows
