PowerColor X1600 XT Bravo PCI Express Videocard Review
PowerColor X1600 XT Bravo PCI Express Videocard Review - PCSTATS
The Radeon X1600 XT core doesn't generate a significant amount of heat, so a simple aluminum heatsink that extends over the memory modules is all the card really needs.

Does Powercolor Have a Winner, Sort Of?

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 at 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 said.
