Introduction

Sapphire Technology X1600 Pro HDMI 256MiB

We've seen a gaggle of X1600-based cards pass through HEXUS.labs recently. All you have to do is look at our recent round-up that took in Radeon X1600 XT cards from all and sundry.

We found Sapphire's X1600 XT card to be a decent performer, yet the company reckoned that it had another SKU that was just as interesting, if not quite as fast.

Enter the Sapphire Technology X1600 Pro HDMI 256MiB. The penultimate word, HDMI, is what makes it special. With an integrated HDCP-certified HDMI connection as standard, and half-height form-factor, could this be the card for those of you who have invested in HDMI-enabled LCD and plasma TVs of late. Read on to find out.
