The Powercolor X1600XT Bravo is a decent mainstream
videocard for light gaming. It really offers a lot if you plan to take advantage
of the variety of video in/out options. Of particular interest is bound to be
the component output (Y, Pb, Pr) to a home theatre HDTV display.
In terms of performance, the Powercolor X1600XT Bravo
was pretty good for its class, and in some benchmarks performed on par with
GeForce 6800GT and Radeon X800 XL level videocards.
Overclocking was not a strong suit of the PowerColor X1600 XT Bravo... and we'll just leave that
It's sticker price of $170 CDN ($150 USD, £84 GBP) is easy on
the wallet. The Powercolor X1600XT Bravo is actually a bit more affordable than
when the Radeon X700 Pro was introduced, and it includes such niceties as SM
3.0, ATI Crossfire compatibility, and dual monitor support.
The Radeon X1600 series VPU is exactly what ATi needed
to compete with nVidia's mainstream videocard parts, and consumers will
certainly benefit from the Powercolor X1600XT Bravo's feature set. 'nuff
