ATI’s X600 series is an older series of graphics cards, first introduced in 2004, that includes four separate graphics cards. The X600 series includes three desktop graphics cards and one mobile graphics chipset designed for laptops. These graphics cards are based on outdated technology that is unsuitable for gaming or other graphics-intensive applications but provides suitable performance for word processing, web browsing and other everyday tasks.
The All-in-Wonder X600 Pro is based on the RV 370 Graphics Processing Unit. This graphics card provides support for a broad variety of multi-media devices in addition to the graphics-processing capabilities of a regular video card. This card is compatible with the AGP 8x video interface found on older motherboards. Its processor has a core clock speed of 400 megahertz and provides 256 megabytes of DDR memory using a 128-bit data bus. This version of the X600 has memory with an effective clock speed of 600 MHz and a maximum bandwidth of 9.6 gigabytes per second. It provides video output using an analog VGA port and a DVI-I port that supports output and input from televisions, DVD players and other multi-media devices using TV, VIVO and HD compatible video adapters.
The mobile version of the X600 uses the mobile M24 GPU. This processor has a core clock speed of 400 MHz. The ATI mobility Radeon X600 uses DDR memory with a 128-bit data bus that has an effective clock speed of 500 MHz. This memory provides an 8-GB-per-second bandwidth capacity in a 128 MB configuration. This graphics chipset uses the more modern PCI Express x16 graphics interface.
Radeon X600 Pro
The X600 Pro uses newer technology than the All-in-Wonder X600 but has roughly equivalent hardware and performance. This card is based on an RV380 GPU with a core clock speed rated at 400MHz. It uses the PCI Express x16 graphics card interface found on the mobile version of this card but provides enhanced performance due to faster memory. The memory used on this version of the X600 is 128-bit DDR memory with an effective clock speed of 600MHz. It is available in either 128 or 256MB configurations and has a maximum bandwidth of 9.6 GBs per second. This card provides both DVI-I and VGA output ports.
Radeon X600 XT
The X600 XT is the most powerful version of the X600. This card also uses the RV380 GPU but features enhanced processor and memory clock speeds. This card has a core clock speed of 500 MHz and an effective memory clock speed of 740MHz. It uses DDR memory with a 128-bit data bus that provides 11.84 GBs per second of memory bandwidth in 128 and 256MB configurations. This card is compatible with the PCI Express x16 graphics interface and provides DVI-I and VGA outputs. Most models of this card also support analog TV output, and a few support VIVO input and output.
