Rather than increase the rendering pipelines for the Radeon X1000 series, ATi has shrunk the die and gone for higher core clock frequencies. Using a 90nm TSMC process, core frequencies of over 600MHz are achievable. The Radeon X1000 series currently consists of seven graphics cards featuring price tags that range from as little as $80 US through to $550 US. The Radeon X1300 HyperMem is the cheapest of the bunch featuring just 4 pixel pipelines, 2 vertex pipelines, a 450MHz core clock and a 1GHz memory clock. The Radeon X1600XT is a mid-range option featuring 12 pixel pipelines, 5 vertex pipelines, a 590MHz core clock and a 1.38GHz memory clock speed.
