HIS Excalibur X600 XT VIVO EditionThu, Jan 20, 2005 - 8:00 PM
Today we will be reviewing the HIS Excalibur X600 XT video card, which is based off the RV380 core by ATI. The X600 XT video card is a PCI Express Card, and we are comparing it to Asus’s 9600XT, which is an AGP Slot Card. Although this card has been out for a little while, we feel our readers would like to see how this good quality, mid-priced card sizes up to some of the newer gaming titles as well as its performance against its AGP counter-part!
As you can see, this card comes with quite the package! It comes with six cd-roms, and that includes Counter-Strike, Condition Zero, a 5-in-1 Games Collection, PictureEZ Digital Photo Suite, VideoStudio 7SE, and of course, the graphics installation card. The card also comes with the user’s manual, composite to s-video adapter, s-video cable, vivo cable, and a DVI to VGA adapter. HIS did a great job of supplying all of the cables you need to use the provided features on the card!
